More Easter Cupcakes

I made two kinds of cupcakes for Ben's Easter party at school, since parents and siblings were invited. I got the idea for the candy carrots here. I've seen lots of Easter cupcakes with coconut nests. But I thought most children wouldn't like coconut, so I made haystacks into nests - I formed them in a mini-muffin pan and put the jelly beans inside before they hardened. The nests need to be refrigerated if you make them ahead of time.

I used Martha Stewart's Devil's Food Cupcakes recipe with buttercream. For the carrot cupcakes, I made this one, which was new to me. Both recipes were great!

Cupcake tips: fill cupcake liners to just about 1/4 inch below the rim before baking to develop a nice cupcake top. Use a decorating bag and tip to frost; your frosting will look better and you won't tear up delicate cupcakes.

What a treat... to see more cupcakes. The title that shows up for your blog on the front page of my blog says 'Granola'... not sure why but cupcakes beat granola any day!

And they came out very cute!

Yes, I decided to postpone the granola post in favor of more Easter fun!

These are cute! Have seen a few Easter ideas and love the little nests on the top. Good job.
