These Spring Chick Cupcakes are an adorable Easter dessert! These easy chocolate cupcakes are sure to be a favorite treat in your household. Perfect for spring, Easter brunch or just any time!
So, Julia’s second (!) birthday is ON Easter this year. As fun as holidays are with a toddler, I’m a little bit sad that we have to share her birthday with a holiday. I really look forward to celebrating anything with her so I wish they were spread out a bit.
We’ll have fun regardless and her birthday will have a bit of an Easter theme this year.
Spring Chick Cupcakes
One of Julia’s current favorite books is called “Cutie Pie Looks for the Easter Bunny” so when I saw Bird On A Cake’s Easter chick cupcakes on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to make similar spring chick cupcakes.
As I mentioned last week, we went to Walmart and stocked up on baking supplies. I picked up a few Funfetti cake mixes as well as Dark Chocolate. I couldn’t resist all the frosting colors – I got white, orange, and yellow to use with these easy cupcakes – it was nice to skip the step of dying them myself.
How to make Spring Chick Easter Cupcakes
Just like my monkey and panda cupcakes, it’s funny how just changing the eyes can give them different personalities.
Julia didn’t help with the decorating of these since they were a bit more involved than she’s ready for, but she certainly helped eat them. She was so excited to see them and shouted “chick!”.
