Forget chocolate and peanut butter — the winning combination with these Easter nest cupcakes is chocolate and coconut! The simple chocolate cupcake base (the batter is made from bittersweet chocolate, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla extract and flour) are topped with a lucious coconut buttercream frosting. What makes them “Easter nest” cupcakes, you ask? The toasted, flaked coconut placed atop of the frosting in a circle, and the egg shaped pralines placed in the center of each, of course!

I have been a fan of cupcakes since my childhood and I have never been fascinated by any cupcakes I tasted more than the Ladybird cupcakes! This cupcake is exquisitely baked that you can’t help but wonder how it is done. This is a perfect cupcake that you can serve for children’s parties and you will definitely get lots of “wows” and “oohs” from them. Nevertheless, Ladybird cupcakes can be served in any occasion with their perfect taste and fascinating appearance.

From the outset, birds nest cupcakes sound like some horrible experiment gone wrong, but once you see that the “birds nest” in the title refers to how these treats are decorated, it all makes sense. Without the creative decorating, these vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting seem pretty basic. But, once the sweetened coconut flakes (for the nest) and decorated blue chocolate Cadbury mini eggs have been added, complete with orange buttercream beaks and melted chocolate eyes, these cupcakes become a tasty masterpiece.

These Tahitian vanilla bean cupcakes are a perfect dessert to serve at your next island (or Hawaiian) themed party. On top of the festive and colorful cupcake tins and toppers, the Tahitian vanilla bean, sour cream and vanilla extract in the batter results in a cupcake that is a vanilla-lovers dream come true. Add to the fun with the heavy cream-based Tahitian vanilla bean, powdered sugar and vanilla extract frosting. Follow with some sprinkles and a colorful topper.
