Itsy Bitsy Easter Cupcakes

I usually forget to celebrate a holiday with the girls until about a month or so after the fact. I know. I'm terrible. Last years Easter Egg dyeing took place 2 weeks after Easter, our Halloween cookies weren't baked until November, and I skipped decorations for Thanksgiving and Christmas altogether.

In fact, we had spaghetti for Thanksgiving dinner, and we never even bought a Christmas tree. Oops.

I look forward to the day when the girls start school, so that they can do all of the holiday arts and crafts there, and not have to worry about missing everything just because their mom forgot to buy a calendar again.

Now, yesterday, however.... I REMEMBERED TO MAKE EASTER CUPCAKES! Hurray for me. I'm pretty darned proud of myself. They turned out pretty cute, too. And delicious, although I can't take the credit for that since I just used Funfetti cake with Betty Crocker frosting.

Now, I'm no professional cupcake decorator, (have you seen that cupcake cookbook called Hello, Cupcake! I want it!!) but I was able to figure out how to make an Easter bunny for each girl. They were pretty excited to eat their bunnies.

And then I got bored of making all of the Eggs-in-Grass cupcakes so I just went crazy with the colored frosting.... I had 60 mini cupcakes to decorate, after all.

And nearly 60 cupcakes to eat as well.

The best part about making mini-cupcakes is that you don't gain a single lb. from eating them.

Really.

Seriously, cute cupcakes though. Glad I can enjoy them from afar. Too tempting. Besides, I still have birthday cake over here.

Those look, as Amelia would say SCRUMPTIOUS! We have Blue's Room to thank for that $10 word :) Since I'm sure you're looking for someone to take those off your hands, I'll send Merrick over. He'll annhilate them in about 2 seconds...though you get to keep him after the sugar rush.

Hey, I used Funfetti cake mix in a box too and betty crocker icing in a can ... theres no shame in that!!!

Adorable, and yummy looking too! I had to send all of ours off to school with Brayden which only left 4 of them here :( (thats my sly way of telling you that I'll be at your house to sample your cupcakes!)

I have a confession...i too never decorated for halloween & christmas. I had my tree up without any ornaments....strange seeing I make ornaments. ;P

I just took out my easter stuff today and didn't put most of it out. I am not sure if I am dying eggs on fri or sat.
