Happy Easter! We’ve been making Easter Baskets and baking up an Atlanta Storm. These cupcakes come from the same vanilla cupcake batter. The chick magnet cupcake is a standard size cc with a dollop of my keylime cream cheese icing with a yellow peep on top of the dollop. My younger sister isn’t a fan of icing, but loves cake. She was our muse for the Chick Magnet Cupcake
These 2 Bite Butterflies recipe was given to us by my friend Cathy. We decided to make 2 bites, because Easter is one of those holidays where you can lose a tooth, if you’re not careful. Our butterflies are made from yogurt covered pretzels (Krogers have then on sale for $1.99 a box) and pastel almond M & Ms. Same Key Lime Icing. We had to refrigerate these puppies. The size is a hit. My mom ate them with two bites. pretzel and M &M included. Really.
If you want to do these with your kids. I prefer homemade batter with Swan Cake Flower, Clabber Girl, etc, but for sake of time sift Pillsbury Butter Cake Mix (Kroger has it for $1 this week). Sift very well. Very well. Follow directions, but mix liquids first then add in dry mix one cup at a time. Add some Wesson Canola oil or olive oil to your batter ala Paula Deen. Cupcake will melt in your mouth.
