Easter Egg Cupcakes are perfect to serve for all the children on Easter Sunday! My boys love these cupcakes. They love bubble gum! So I used bubble gum Easter eggs and green coconut on top of the creamy frosting. You could also use robin eggs or some other Easter candy! 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. Easter Morning, I pull them out of the frig! They will come to room temperature and will be ready for Easter dinner. Easter Egg Cupcakes are the perfect dessert on Easter Sunday! The kids (and adults) love these!
