Cute and Colourful Easter Cupcakes
What is the first thing that comes in your mind when you hear “Easter”? To me, this is the beginning of Spring, the chocolate eggs (loads of them) and all the easter desserts we can take home. Here I am sharing my Colourful Easter Cupcakes recipe for you…
Baking has never been my forte but I thought it would be fun celebrating this Easter with some cute and colourful easter cupcakes. So I did a bit of a baking thing-y over the weekend and here are the results…

3. Spoon the mixture evenly into the paper cases. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until well risen and firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
4. To make the frosting, put the butter in a bowl and beat until fluffy. Sift in the icing sugar and beat together until well mixed, adding the milk, vanilla extract and the yellow food colouring. Put the frosting in the piping bag fitted with a large star-shaped nozzle. When the cupcakes are cool, pipe circles of frosting on top of the cupcakes to form a nest. Decorate with chocolate eggs.
Hope you have an amazing Easter holiday my lovelies…
