Easter is an inherently adorable time of the year. Spring flowers are blooming, cheerful pastel colors are everywhere and all around, life is happening. This is the time of year we boil eggs, spend time dyeing them with the family, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Plus it is completely acceptable to gorge on a ton of Easter candy and do delicious boozy Easter brunches.
But Easter candy isn’t the only thing that is sweet about this holiday. After 40 days of fasting from meat on Fridays or giving up sweets for Lent, those who celebrate Easter cut a little loose on Easter Sunday. Instead of sneaking extra Peeps or making traditional hot cross buns this year, bring beauty and flavor together with the help of some cutie cupcakes.
After you and your family enjoy a delicious Easter dinner, we suggest you indulge in decorative decadence and spring and Easter inspired cupcakes are just the way to do that. Using rich cake bases like carrot, lemon, or butter cake that harken to the season, you can create gorgeous cupcakes that really dress up your table. To help you create these sweet wonders, we pulled together a list of awe-inspiring cupcakes that made us both swoon and salivate. From cupcakes that look like a spring bird’s nest to little fondant bunnies playing peek-a-boo, we have a collection of the most adorable Easter cupcakes you’ll ever find.
Nesting just took on a whole new meaning! These sweet nests host iconic Easter candy to make the most adorable birds nest we’ve ever seen. We are pretty sure only the cutest chicks in the world would hatch from here.
This adorable bunny is ready to play this Easter! The carrot cupcakes are topped with cream cheese frosting and homemade fondant and boast a playful bunny that just can’t hide from us!
