I just got asked by my church's Sunday school leader to do three dozen Easter themed cupcakes for the Easter egg hunt. It's sort of important because, A) Obviously I want to do something nice for the kids. And B) it will be a good way to drum up jobs. Any suggestions? Ideas? Photos?
Thanks in advance

I'm going to be doing Easter cupcakes for our family party and I plan on making pastel pansies and daffodils on the tops of them instead of just plain icing.

The other thing I can think of is to ice them green and put green tinted coconut on them and then pipe on 3-d ducks and lambs. The kids would LOVE all that icing! lol!

When you mentioned Easter cupcakes I immediately thought of little baskets with eggs in them. Maybe make the cupcake, you could use licorice for the handle, icing for grass & put either a candymelt egg or bunny on top.

Lisa: your idea sounds cute...can't wait to see the picture.

Too funny!! And very true for me, too!! I do the same thing with scrapbooking--I can look at someone ELSE'S page and know exactly what it needs--my own? no way! Argh!

Do you have the small egg-shaped pans? what about decorating those (they are about the same size as a cupcake) to look like easter eggs?

I saw someone last year do something cute with Easter cupcakes. She just put a Marshmallow Peeps bunny or chick in the center and then used the grass tip to pipe the grass around it like a nest and added some pastel colored peanut M&Ms or speckled eggs. You can even pipe the grass in different colors besides green since Easter grass comes that way.

How about some with a cross on them, since it is for Sunday school? Make them in different colors to make it bright for the kids.

Chenille stems also look great as handles for baskets, especially if you leave them long. Just bend them into a U shape and stick the two ends into either side of the cupcakes. They come in great pastel colors too!

Here are the cupcakes I made last yr for my dd's class at Easter. They are easy to make & the kids loved them. I used toothpicks to hold the twixlers in place & those are the sour jellybeans you can get at the store. They are the same brand as the sour gummy worms & sour octopus...my brain is not functioning.

I made some really pretty cupcakes with daffodils on top made out of royal, kids always love royal icing, they think they are getting candy.

Also I did cupcakes for my Wilton class with different figure piped animals. You can soo the duck in the back left corner. One of the Wilton books has instructions on a bunch of different animals. It's the one with the pink rose cake on teh front with beaded scrolls on the side. I bet you could get instructions online as well just search for figure piped animals.

I used the larger grass tip #234. I thought the same thing as we were making them! lol My dd was looking at me like I was crazy since she has never seen big league gum.

I didn't use coconut since I am allergic to it, but it is very common for easter especially on bunny cakes.

ya'll are making me want to make cupcakes! Great ideas everyone!
I love coconut on cake, but find a lot of times ,especially with kids, I am in the minority on that one. I made a nemo cake one time for dd b-day dyed coconut blue and put it all around the bottom to look like water and I had one little boy who would not even eat any cake cause of the coconut.

In the latest April 2006 issue of Family Fun on pg. 22 there is some cute "chick" cupcakes made with donut holes. They are called "Sweet Tweets". They also have a website www.familyfun.com you could probably find them on there too.

---Those bunny in the basket things are cute and you could do the same type with the chick peeps and jelly beans.
