Easter Peeps Cupcakes Recipe

Annamaria Settanni McDonald Recipe

By Annamaria Settanni McDonald ArtByASM

I love creating peep cupcakes for Easter. They are so fun and make everyone smile! You can use any flavor cake mix or frosting! Be creative for Easter! I prefer using Whopper malted milk eggs because the coating is speckled like real bird eggs!

    As far as ideas go, sometimes they keep me up at night, like now, it's 2:39am. I am working on my cookbook and trying to post recipes and plan birthdays. It's never a dull moment in my head, now I just wish I could get all done quicker! LOL!

    Really cute idea~~

    I know it should be pretty self-explanatory, but you forgot to mention to actually put the peep onto the cupcake.
