Bit sick of chocolate and want something special for Easter? Try these easy, rich and cute Easter Cupcakes!

I’ve been doing these cupcakes almost every Easter, but I just try to twist it up a bit using different cupcake recipes. This time I’m using a butter cake mix. It tastes incredible!

This one’s a great activity to do with the kids (if you don’t mind the mess!).


  1. Bake the buttercake according to instructions, but divide into cupcake pans instead of a whole cake.

  2. Allow to cool before icing.

  3. Whip the butter and icing sugar together until creamy, slowly adding the milk until a thick consistency.

  4. Pipe on the tops of cupcakes.

  5. Tint the coconut green with food colouring by adding a small amount of the coconut to a ziplock bag and adding a few drops of colour

  6. Shake until the coconut is tinted to your desired colour.

  7. Sprinkle coconut onto the iced cupcake, leaving a small hole in the middle.

  8. Place a few small Easter eggs in the middle and gently place the liquorice strap across the top as a handle.

  9. Tint the coconut yellow using the same method as above.

  10. A jelly baby (or similar) can be cut to shape for the beak and 2 skittles for the eyes.

  11. Tint coconut green and completely cover the cupcake and the plate underneath.

  12. Using inedible chickens and small sugar shell Easter eggs, create a chicken lay of eggs and chickens.

  13. Great for a table centrepiece.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Easter Cupcakes are suitable for freezing before being iced
