Bit sick of chocolate and want something special for Easter? Try these easy, rich and cute Easter Cupcakes! I’ve been doing these cupcakes almost every Easter, but I just try to twist it up a bit using different cupcake recipes. This time I’m using a butter cake mix. It tastes incredible! This one’s a great activity to do with the kids (if you don’t mind the mess!).

Ingredients

  • 1 Butter Cake Mix supermarket brand or homemade
  • 1 Butter (125 Grams)
  • 1 1/2 cups Icing Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Milk

Decorations

  • 1 Coconut
  • 1 Green And Yellow Food Colouring
  • 1 Liquorice Strips
  • 1 Small Sugar Shell Easter Eggs
  • 1 Skittles And Jelly Babies

Method

  1. Bake the buttercake according to instructions, but divide into cupcake pans instead of a whole cake.
  2. Allow to cool before icing.
  3. Whip the butter and icing sugar together until creamy, slowly adding the milk until a thick consistency.
  4. Pipe on the tops of cupcakes.

FOR EASTER BASKETS:

  1. Tint the coconut green with food colouring by adding a small amount of the coconut to a ziplock bag and adding a few drops of colour
  2. Shake until the coconut is tinted to your desired colour.
  3. Sprinkle coconut onto the iced cupcake, leaving a small hole in the middle.
  4. Place a few small Easter eggs in the middle and gently place the liquorice strap across the top as a handle.

FOR CHICKEN FACES:

  1. Tint the coconut yellow using the same method as above.
  2. A jelly baby (or similar) can be cut to shape for the beak and 2 skittles for the eyes.

FOR CHICKEN LAY:

  1. Tint coconut green and completely cover the cupcake and the plate underneath.
  2. Using inedible chickens and small sugar shell Easter eggs, create a “chicken lay” of eggs and chickens.
  3. Great for a table centrepiece.
