Here’s a super-easy Easter treat you can make, and the kids can help out with this, too! These Easy Egg Nest Cupcakes are so, so easy to make because you use cake mix for the cupcakes and a ready-made container of frosting. They’re decorated with either chocolate frosting with chocolate sprinkles, or vanilla frosting with green-tinted sweetened coconut flakes. The sprinkles and the tinted coconut flakes give the cupcake tops a nest-like appearance. And they’re topped with your choice of mini robin eggs, speckled mini chocolate eggs, or speckled jelly beans.
I took the photo above of the cupcakes with some cute little plush toys for Mary & Martha Home, showing the cupcakes on the new Simply Elegant Dessert Pedestal. This serving piece has a ceramic top that says, “Made with love…served with joy!” and it also has a beautiful acacia wood pedestal that twists off for easy storage. The plush are also from Mary&Martha: a cuddly, sweet elephant, bunny, and giraffe! Continue reading
With Easter coming up, you may be looking for fun craft ideas for the kids and grandkids. Even if you’re separated by distance, you can share the fun of doing crafts together via Skype, FaceTime, or other ways of connecting! The Bunny Treat Cups I’m showing you are so fun and easy to make! You just need a few craft supplies to put these together and, of course, some springtime treats to fill the cups with! 🙂 Continue reading
I love those Malted Milk Speckled Eggs…they are my favorite Easter candy (and those Cadbury Creme Eggs are a close second)! I buy them every year and eat way too many of them! One year, I found a Robin’s Egg Blue teacup at a flea market and thought it would make a great candy dish for my speckled eggs—I still use it for that! I love the way the pretty pastel speckled eggs look nestled inside the blue teacup. Maybe you’ll be able to use this idea for your own Easter candy!
It’s fun using teacups for other uses in addition to drinking tea. I’ve been to tea rooms with friends where they serve soup in teacups–isn’t that a great idea? If you’re a teacup collector, it’s a great way to use your teacups more often! 🙂
Hope you are enjoying all your Easter and springtime goodies! What’s your favorite Easter treat?
