My Mini Egg Easter cupcakes are a perfect balance of chocolatey cupcakes and soft vanilla buttercream, with beautiful Mini Eggs to finish it off. Everyone loves these, and they look so pretty! 😊
This year’s obsession: mini eggs!
So Easter baking season is well underway, this year I’ve found myself a little obsessed with these gorgeous sugar-shell coated chocolate mini eggs. Perfectly bite-sized, these are fab little chocolate morsels just for munching on, but I love incorporating them in my bakes too!
Of course, cupcakes and cookies are always high on my list of bakes, especially if I can make them seasonal! Many of you were delighted by my enchanted egg cupcakes and drooled over my hot cross cookies (totally worth the make, if you haven’t already, they’re pretty delish!). And, following my current obsession, my mini egg cookies are proving pretty popular too!
So, to carry on the obsession with mini eggs, today I’m sharing my mini egg easter cupcakes! Beautiful moist deep chocolatey cupcakes topped with a light vanilla buttercream ruffle and crowned with the star of the show: mini eggs!
Pretty Easter colours needed!
To add to the sweet springtime feel of these bakes, I like to colour my buttercream in the colours of mini eggs. Of course, I’m aware mini eggs come in four colours, not three as I’ve done, but pure white buttercream is actually tricky! So pink, purple and yellow it is.
But just LOOK at them, aren’t they so very pretty?! 😍 Seriously, utterly in love with the soft pastel colours of mini eggs and this beautiful buttercream.
I make my cupcakes chocolate instead of vanilla, because Easter to me is also all about chocolate. If you’d rather make vanilla cupcakes instead, just substitute cocoa for the same amount of flour and add in 1 tsp of vanilla. Job done!
Sweet, delicious Easter cupcakes. It doesn’t get much better than this! However you decide to decorate and scoff these is up to you, but I’m sure they will be a firm favourite!
Happy baking, friends. Enjoy! x
