We Got Our Bake On This Easter

4/12/12


This Easter weekend was a pretty special one for us. We had both of our kiddos and the Attic Baby had her very first egg hunt!


To add to the sugar high, we decided to get our bake on and make some yummy cupcakes with our extra kit that I'd been saving just for this occasion.  You can read about my review of their cheeseburger cupcake kit here.



If you're not familiar with Cupcake Cuties,  they sell fun decorative kits to make your cupcakes adorable!  All you have to do is buy your favorite cupcakes, bake 'em, ice 'em, and then use the kit to decorate.  Easy as 1, 2, 3!  




This Easter Basket Kit is just too cute NOT to make at Easter!  It contains:  

  • (24) Easter Basket Cupcake Sleeves/Wrappers
  • Marbled Egg Confetti Shaker
  • Colored Pipe Cleaners (for handles)
  • Easy to follow How-To decorating instructions and illustrations





After baking yellow cupcakes, we gathered our icing and kit ingredients and got to work.






We put all of the sleeves around the cupcakes first.  This makes it a little easier rather than icing them and then trying to wrap the sleeves around the base.  My son wants to get into culinary arts some day, so he took over the icing.  (the one in the photo doesn't have a sleeve yet)




After that, we added the decorative egg shaped sprinkles and put the pipe cleaners on.  I cut the pipe cleaners in half so they would fit the cupcakes since some were a little smaller than others.






Don't they look cute?  They turned out delish too!   I set them all on my favorite sunflower plate and then took The Attic Baby's lamb and some Easter eggs to add a little flair in presentation.




We were able to get all our cupcakes baked and decorated before The Attic baby woke up from her nap.  It was a fun family activity that didn't take up too much time.  Definitely a plus when you have little ones at home!

These cuties are great for parties, special occasions, or just because.   If you're looking to add a little pizazz to your cupcakes, you should check out the other kits they have available.

You can purchase kits directly from the Cupcake Cuties website.  Find their latest designs and news on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Thanks Cupcake Cuties for helping us get our bake on!  

Disclosure:  I received the above kit for the purpose of review.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
