Easter Nest Cupcakes – cupcakes topped with a sprinkle nest and egg candies! How cute are these for Easter?! You can use any cake mix and frosting you want.
Easter is next weekend.
Are you ready?
I am SO not and I start panicking and then I remember how last Easter we were living in an Army hotel with all 5 of us plus 2 dogs in one room and that we somehow managed to still pull of an awesome Easter. And I feel a little better about being totally not prepared.
One thing, though, that you can always count on me for is desserts. I am fully prepared to make ALL THE EASTER DESSERTS.
Especially because my pantry is always stocked with Pillsbury baking mixes and frosting.
Every time I’m in Walmart, I wander down the baking aisle to see what’s new and while I’m there, I grab a few more boxes of my fave Pillsbury mixes and a few cans of frosting. It’s so nice to have them in the pantry for last minute get togethers or just an afternoon treat.
I think instead of dyeing Easter eggs this year, I may make a ton of cupcakes and decorate those instead! Just as much fun and so much tastier!
And can we talk about how cute these Easter Nest Cupcakes are?! They are so easy – I used my favorite Pillsbury Moist Supreme Cake Mix in chocolate and the Pillsbury Creamy Supreme frosting. And then to decorate, I just place some chocolate sprinkles down in a circle shape to look like a nest and then placed some candy eggs in the center.
So cute. My kids loved this idea and were thrilled to help out with them!
