Who doesn’t love mini cupcakes? I know they have always been a favorite of mine, and these mini Easter cupcakes don’t disappoint. There are so many adorable designs for Spring and Easter cupcakes and I decided to go with a simple grass technique and some Easter candies for my contribution to Easter lunch.

I made these pink velvet cupcakes in my baby cakes cupcake maker. I love this thing! It takes just minutes to have 6 perfectly cooked cupcakes. Perfect for when I just want a couple cupcakes each or want to test recipes or designs.

To ice I used OXO Good Grips that were sent to me a couple years ago for participating in the Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I have no idea why I waited so long to use them, they are great. They made icing so much faster. No hand cramps or air bubbles make for a smoother process.

To make the grass and egg cupcakes you will need:

  • Cupcakes
  • A favorite¬†Icing homemade or store-bought
  • green food coloring I used Wilton Leafe Green
  • piping bag or OXO Good Grips
  • Wilton #233 tip
  • Robbin Eggs
  1. To make the icing a great green color add in icing by dipping a toothpick into the color and swirling it around in the icing. I used two toothpicks and had to drop a little extra into it to get the color I wanted. Remember you can always add more but you can’t take it out. Stir it around very well to make sure there are no white spots.
  2. Fill up your piping container.
  3. Take a cupcake and pipe on the grass. The tip needs to be about 1/4 inch above your cupcake. Squeeze until the icing is at the length you want and then stop completely before you pull up. This will give you the cleanest look.
  4. Add in two or three eggs and you are done.

Note: If you don’t like malted milk balls then you may not want Robbin Eggs. Jelly Beans, M&M eggs or pastel color would work here just as well.

Here is a video of me making them. This is my first video so I am still getting the hang of it.
