Easter Chick Cupcakes From Bird on a Cake
Robin’s Egg Easter Cupcakes
Store-bought cake mix makes these cupcakes a breeze, and let’s you spend time on the most important part (the decorating!). This is a project the kids can have fun with, from mixing up the batter all the way to the finishing touches. A simple mix of cocoa powder and vanilla extract creates the speckled design, and the light blue frosting provides the perfect contrast. We like topping these with a speckled candy egg, but feel free to use smaller candies, such as M&Ms. Simply arrange three on top instead of one to resemble several eggs in a nest.

Easter Basket Cupcakes From Skip to My Lou
Cover the base of your cupcake in a printable basketweave wrapper, then pop a brown pipe cleaner (accessorized with a colorful bow, of course) into the cake. Don’t forget to fill your basket with a handful of jelly beans!
