These Easter cupcakes range from elegant to adorable, but all have one thing in common: they are easy to make and will impress everyone!
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love to share easy and fun cupcake decorating ideas. Cupcakes are my perfect treat for a few reasons:
- I can snack on one (instead of an entire cake…)
- the sky is the limit when it comes to designs
- who doesn’t love a cupcake?!
Some of our Easter cupcakes feature icing as the star and others will make use of some unique decorating partners. Take a look and let me know your favorite Easter cupcake in the comments.
