One year I wanted to make some Easter cupcakes that were not the typical bunny, eggs, ducks etc. and this is what I came up with. :)

Serves:

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 pkg
rainbow twizzlers
1 bag(s)
pretzel sticks
1-2 can(s)
vanilla icing
1 box
yellow cake mix

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix cake mix as directed OR make yellow cake from a recipe of your choice.
2
Line 12 count muffin tin with your choice of festive cupcake liners and preheat oven to 350 F.
3
Using ice cream scoop, fill liners 2/3 full with cake batter and bake for about 19 minutes.
4
Pull out and check with a toothpick. Clean means they are done, not clean means bake about 2 more minutes.
5
Let cupcakes cool on paper towels at least 5 minutes or not warm to the touch. Frost cupcakes with vanilla icing or your own favorite icing (as long as it is white).
6
Cut rainbow Twizzlers into small enough pieces to represent rays around the cross. You will need about 12 rays for each cupcake: 6 shorter and 6 longer (see picture).
7
Place pretzel sticks on top of icing in the shape of a cross.
8
Place the Twizzler rays around each cross in a yellow, orange, red, purple, blue and green order if you want the rainbow look (see picture). Otherwise, create your own color pattern if you would like.
