Simple Easter Cupcakes


Cupcakes for Easter


Somehow Easter has managed to sneak up on me. I try to make a special treat for the kids with each passing holiday. It wasn’t until last night, when my littlest mention we hadn’t made any Easter treats that I realized Easter was only a week away. So with limited baking supplies in my pantry we got to work creating something fun for them to enjoy, simple Easter themed vanilla cupcakes.

What you need:
  • 12 Nilla wafers
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • Jelly beans
  • Sweetened bakers coconut
  • Wilton green food coloring spray


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350

Place a wafer at the bottom of each cupcake wrapper; prepare cake mix according to packaging.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups with about 1/3 cup batter as not to overflow when baking, leaving room for coconut “grass.” Bake for about 18-20 until done.

Cool; top with coconut. Spray coconut with green food coloring spray add jelly beans and serve.

Cupcakes for holidays


You’ll have a fun Easter themed cupcake without a ton of work!
