Easter Cupcakes

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.
