Incredibly Easy Easter Cupcakes – Take boxed cake mix to the next level! So light and fluffy with the perfect decorations for Easter! #MixUpAMoment
If there is one holiday, I love the colors it has to be Easter. All of the beautiful pastels in the stores bring a smile to my face. The pastel colors are so much fun and mean Spring is already here!
When it comes to cupcakes I always like to keep a box or two of Pillsbury™ cake mixes and frostings handy. You never know when the cupcake cravings may come. Or when you decide to have a family bonding moment and making cupcakes from scratch seem a little too far-fetched.
Trust me. I understand. Sometimes we need the easy way out, especially when it comes to decorations on cupcakes. This year for Easter I thought it would be perfect to whip up a batch of incredibly easy Easter cupcakes with extremely easy decorations.
But of course, I had to run to my Walmart because I was out of my favorite mix! Ugh. But it’s okay because I found the perfect cake mix and frosting, Pillsbury™ Spring Funfetti® Cake Mix and Pillsbury™ Spring Funfetti® Vanilla Flavored Frosting! I decided to stock up on a couple of boxes of the price was fantastic! Never know when the cupcake or sprinkle crave may come on, right?
I decided to take Pillsbury™ cake mix up a notch and mix up a moment with these incredibly easy Easter cupcakes! They are so much fun! If you have little ones, be sure to include them in the decorating process.
Since I am not the best cupcake decorator, I wanted to do a trial run before bringing a full batch with my hubby to work. Always have to impress the co-workers!
