What is it about cupcakes?  Is it the fact that slicing and dicing isn’t necessary?  Maybe it is the fact that little hands can easily hold their own?

Could it possibly be the fact that they are like full-sized cakes but in a mini size?  Mini is awesome… have you seen the mini donkeys? Anyway!

Plus, if your kids are anything like mine, they will find these adorable Easter Cupcakes FUN as well as yummy.  You will get that Mom of the Year Award yet!
