Easter Egg Cupcakes are perfect to serve for all the children! My boys love these cupcakes. They love the bubble gum used as Easter eggs and the green coconut on top of the creamy frosting. For the cupcake mix I followed the directions in —> How to Cut Calories When Baking a Cake —> I used a box of yellow cake mix and 7up.
These cupcakes are easy to make and you can prepare them ahead of time. I usually make these the Saturday before Easter and keep them in the fridge until morning. The morning of Easter I pull them out so they can thaw and they are perfectly delicious by the time we are ready for Easter dinner.
