Spring is here and Easter is right around the corner! The best part- Cadbury Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs are here as well, so of course, I had to bake with them.
I recently (finally!) purchased a proper piping bag set and I’m so happy I did, because now I can make pretty frosting…which means I’ve been kind of obsessed with binge-watching buttercream frosting technique videos on YouTube. That being said, I’ve learned how to pipe a rose! So exciting!
Anyway, the recipe for these cupcakes comes from The Scran Line– which I binge-watch regularly as well. These are just simple vanilla cupcakes, but you can definitely make these chocolate or lemon or whatever you like.
Here’s the recipe:
To learn how to frost a rose, I watched this video!
For the Mini Eggs cupcakes I’ve basically frosted the cupcakes using a star tip and green buttercream and added the Mini Eggs on top. Pretty straightforward.
The “special” one I made was the Cadbury Creme Egg cupcake. On top of decorating the top with frosting and half of a mini creme egg, I’ve added a whole mini Creme Egg into the cooled cupcake itself. Just cut a small hole into the centre of the cupcake half-way through and very gently push in your Creme Egg, don’t worry if it sticks out of the top a bit, you’ll be covering it with frosting anyway!
There you go! A few cute Easter and Spring cupcake ideas for your family this Easter weekend.
