Easter Cupcakes

10 Apr

I don’t normally do anything during Easter apart from going to Mass and stuffing my face with chocolates, but this year I thought I’d make cupcakes for my little girl (and the not so little man who will definitely benefit more from this project). 

I searched online for inspirations and chocolate Easter egg cupcakes seem like the best (and easiest) choice. Some featured nests made out of dried coconut shavings which looked really great except I’m not a fan of dried coconut. So I went for the grass icing route.

It’s pretty easy to make, I just made regular vanilla cupcakes but… instead of keeping it plain, I pushed a chocolate egg in the middle. Image

To decorate I used this buttercream recipe http://www.wilton.com/recipe/Buttercream-Icing which I added a few drops of green food colouring to. Then I used a 233 icing tip to ice the cupcakes before placing the candy coated chocolate on top.

But wait there’s more… I also made sugar bunnies from a mixture of fondant and molding paste (50/50) to adorn my Easter cuppies.

Here’s the finished product :

My little girl surely loved them 😉
