Easter Cupcakes or Spring Cupcakes

Tomorrow is Easter... do you need a last minute dessert? Children and adults alike can't resist a tempting cupcake! And really, they are so easy to make, why not whip some up today and surprise your crew for Easter dinner tomorrow?

  • Make your favorite cake recipe or use a box mix.
  • Make it into cupcakes (as you can see from the photo I made both large cupcakes and 24 mini cupcakes).
  • Let cool completely and top with your favorite frosting recipe (I have a bunch to choose from on my side bar!).
  • Sprinkle with non perils or colored sugar and wha-la! You are done!

The frosting I used on the cupcakes in the picture above is;

1 c shortening
1 c butter
4 c powdered sugar
3/4 c marshmallow cream
4 t vanilla extract

Beat on low 30 seconds and high 2-5 minutes until it looks like whipped cream.Print Friendly and PDF
