Easter Cupcakes

Transform some vanilla cupcakes, into Easter Basket Cupcakes with some piped buttercream, a filligree handle, and some mini chocolate eggs. A yummy Easter treat!



Sarah baked up a batch of vanilla cupcakes using the perfect vanilla cupcakes recipe by Glorious Treats. They were light and delicious. The cooled cupcakes were decorated with piped butter cream.

Frosting:
Ingredients:
125 g butter (1 stick), softened
3 cups icing (confectioners) sugar
2 – 4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
pink food colouring


Method:
Place the butter in a large mixing bowl and on medium speed of an electric mixer beat until smooth. Add  the sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk, and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy, about 5-7 minutes. Gradually add the remaining milk or until the icing is thick enough to be of good spreading consistency. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix thoroughly. 

Place icing in piping bag with Wiltons 2D Tip. Pipe swirls onto cupcakes. Add mini Chocolate eggs and filligree handles.
