Totally Adorable Easter Cupcakes

Butterflies and Flowers
Easter cupcakes have never been cuter. This Easter, set out a plate of bunny cupcakes, top a piled-high cupcake with candy flowers, decorate an Easter cupcake with toasted almond slices, or stir good-for-you carrots into batter for easy Easter cupcakes that rival the ones from the bakeshop. We have easy and gorgeous Easter cupcakes perfect for your Easter basket!

Bird's Nest Cupcakes

Rethink chow mein noodles as an easy Easter cupcake topper. Rolled with melted vanilla candy coating, the once-savory bites make the perfect Easter treat.

Hummingbird Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These cupcakes are almost too adorable to eat! Decorate an entire batch of these banana-pineapple spice cupcakes with cute bunny faces just for Easter, or mix in a few fluffy lambs alongside them to help celebrate spring.

Burrowing Bunny Cupcakes

The holiday wouldn't be the same without an appearance from the Easter bunny. Decorating these super-cute cupcakes is a great activity to distract your little ones while they wait for the Easter egg hunt to begin. Just be sure to snag one for yourself before they all hop away!

Chick Cupcakes

Lay a frosted chicken atop a nest of piped chocolate, and a cute Easter cupcake idea is bound to hatch. Each chick is made from half of a cream-filled snack cake (his body) and a vanilla truffle (his head).

Garden-Theme Cupcakes

Your looking at the ultimate cute Easter dessert. Crushed cookies are the dirt, and rolled fondant sheets are the veggies in this adorable garden that the Easter bunny would surely love to raid.

Easter Bunny Bites

Zero-effort piping provides the Easter Bunny's furry face, and a rolling pin is the only tool you'll need to make his perky ears. (Hint: They're flattened gumdrops.) These bunny cupcakes are best served the day you decorate them. 

Nesting Blue Bird Cupcakes

These spring-morning charmers are made from mint meringue; their nests are slivered almonds rolled onto frosted cupcakes. Have your kids help create a few of the sweet tweeters for each Easter cake. 

Ladybug and Flower Cupcakes

Create a gorgeous display of Easter cupcakes. These lovely ladybugs are made with melted red candy coating and chocolate chips. Use a food-coloring pen to draw the spots; you can accomplish the task with black sprinkles, too.

Adorable Bunny Cupcakes

We're all ears when it comes to this inquisitive Easter bunny cupcake. Madeleine cookies provide each bunny cake with its adorable key feature. 

Buttercakes with Sour Cream Frosting

Tuck cute-as-can-be purchased candy flowers into piled-high sour cream frosting for an Easter cupcake that goes to great heights.

Lamb and Ducky Cupcakes

Look at these adorable Easter cupcakes! These two best buds are formed almost the same way: Marshmallow faces and shredded coconut fuzz make them easier to create than you might think.

Fun Flower Cupcakes

Spring has sprung. Celebrate Easter with a bouquet of sweet cupcakes. For these Easter cupcakes, you'll need mini chocolate candies, marzipan bees, and pastel icing. 

Beautiful Rainbow Butterfly Cake

There's no better way to celebrate Easter than with the vibrant colors and smiling face of this butterfly cake. Use regular cupcakes to form the butterfly's body, then mini cupcakes to arrange the wings. They're great for grabbing a small treat after Easter dinner!

Burrowing Bunnies

Could these bunny cupcakes be any cuter? Whip up a batch and you'll have a new favorite Easter dessert. All it takes is a quick piping technique and toppers like jelly beans, marshmallows, and licorice. 

Easy Confetti Celebration Cupcakes

Easter is a celebration! A drizzle of confetti-colored frosting transforms purchased cupcakes into stunning Easter cakes.
