Peeps Cupcakes

Peeps have been a staple in our pantry for as long as my husband and I have been married.  I hate to admit it, but I am one of those people who aren’t fans of them.  My husband and kids love them, so I buy them throughout the year.

 

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  Between the bright springy colors, the Easter Egg hunts, the excuse to pick up new clothes, and of course the meaning that Winter is finally over and everything is new and full of life.

PEEPS CUPCAKES DECORATING IDEAS

You don’t need to be a professional cake decorator to make these Spring cupcakes stand out!  Pick up some spring cupcake liners, fun Easter sprinkles, as well as colorful frosting.  

COULD I USE DIFFERENT COLORED PEEPS IN LIEU OF JUST ONE COLOR?

Absolutely!  You can make these Peep Bunny cupcakes as colorful as you’d like!

WHAT IF THE PEEPS WON’T STAND UPRIGHT AFTER THEY ARE PUT ON TOP OF THE FROSTING?

Here is a little trick I’ve learned.  Take a toothpick and stick the peeps on top of the toothpick and then place on the frosting.  Let those enjoying the cupcakes know though that the toothpick is inside the peep.
