I love Easter baking. Easter is the ideal excuse to bring a little cuteness into the kitchen.

If you’re after some cupcake inpso this Easter, I’m sure you’ll find it in this list. There’s bunny cupcakes, chick cupcakes, Easter egg cupcakes, carrot cupcakes, there’s even spring lamb cupcakes.

That makes these cupcakes a great kids baking idea for Easter. Tasty to eat and also keeping the kids out of your hair for a few hours this long weekend – even better, right!
