For some people, today’s Easter Cupcake decorations are going to be so easy it will blow your mind. Others may be a little disappointed. And others are going to start their Mother’s Day wish list and convince the hubby that Mother’s Day gifts can technically be bought at any time. After all, shouldn’t every day be Mother’s Day? Anyway, these Easter Cupcake decorations are simple because I used my handy dandy Cricut machine. A few pages of scrapbook paper and a few minutes of time, and I’m able to dress up my plain out-the-box cupcakes into a festive treat. Thanks to CraftProjectIdeas.com for supplying the bunnies’ tails for this project.
- Springy scrapbook paper
- White poms for the bunny’s tail
- Hot glue
- Cricut machine with an Easter cartridge or Easter image
One thing you may know about me is that I rarely make cupcakes from scratch. Those folks over at Pillsbury (or Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines) have a good thing going for them, so I’m not one to fix something that ain’t broken, if you know what I mean. However, I sometimes feel like my cupcakes– while awesome and extremely
fattening filling– are a bit plain. But not this Easter. Nope. No one will notice the plain out-of-the-box cupcake because their eye will be drawn to my cute picks on top. You can call me a genius later. Or now. Anytime, really. I used green cupcake liners to look like Easter grass. Although, if I truly had my thinking cap on then I would have dyed the icing green.
I have the Cricut Easter 2010 cartridge. I has bunnies, eggs, chicks, grass, and other neat Easter themed images. I chose the egg, chick, and bunny.
Cut out the shapes using the Cricut. I cut them at 1 1/4″.
For the bunnies, glue a medium sized pom on for the tail.
Then hot glue a toothpick on the back of the shapes and insert into cupcake.
So simple, right? Except for those without a Cricut, and to you I apologize.
