Get Baking this Easter and make your own Cute Cupcakes!
We used a simple Vanilla Cupcake Recipe and Decorated with Whipped Cream.
Easter Bunny Cupcakes: When Cupcakes have cooled, cut a circle out of the centre of the Cupcake, then fill with whipped cream. Cut Cake Circle in half, place into cream as Bunny Ears.
Easter Nest Cupcakes: Cut circle out of the centre and fill with whipped cream. Add Spun Sugar Nest and top with Chocolate Speckled eggs.
To make Spun Sugar Nests: Place 1 Cup of sugar, 1/2 cup water into a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved. Raise heat to high, and bring mixture to a boil. Continue cooking until amber in color. Remove from heat, and briefly plunge the saucepan into ice water to stop the cooking. Let stand to thicken slightly, about 1 minute. Use immediately.
Spray the back of a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Dip a fork into the sugar and drizzle around each muffin cup in a circular motion. Let harden completely. Nests should easily come off cups.
Enjoy! xo Amy
