  1. I like these – so festive!
    Would enjoy making/sharing these with the grand kids.
    thanks

  2. I’ve looked over the recipe multiple times and I cannot find any reason for the green gel food coloring. What am I missing? Now I know, despite not being shown, that the small egg cookie cutter is to be used in the same way as the bunny. However I can’t see getting very complicated in this small space and trying to do multiple colors of the eggs. Other than coloring the white frosting, why the green? And then, why just green, if making what are to be colored eggs then many different colors could be used.

  3. I love your cupcakes, they are so cute! What a great idea to put the frosting inside the cutout! I am guest hosting on the Merry Monday link party for April and I featured your cupcakes in my roundup post. Thanks for sharing and come back to share more. 🙂

  4. Pamela!! I can’t believe that I left that in there – I’m so sorry! It was originally in my recipe because I had the best of intentions of also doing a clover for St. Patrick’s Day, but never got around to it SO we changed things up for Easter, and I totally spaced the color change. I hope there is no one else out there trying to figure out what the green frosting is for, thank you so much for catching that… I have updated the post!

  5. Love how adorable these are! As a new co-host for Merry Monday I’ll be sharing on my roundup this week! Can’t wait to see what you link up this week!
