From Munchkin Munchies, a great tutorial on how to make these Easter Bunny cookies on a stick.  An edible marker from the craft store makes it so simple!

From Sweetopia.com, an incredible Mini Easter Cookie Tree – oh. my. goodness!  Lovely, and so sweet…

I’m sure your kids would love to make their own versions with cookies that they decorated themselves!

And from Ingrid’s Adventures in Baking, some adorable Easter chick cupcakes – I love these, and I know my kids would get a big kick out of them too.  They are made from one large cupcake (for the body) and one mini cupcake (for the head).  She piped feathers using cake decorating tip #16 and some yellow butter cream. The eyes and beaks are made from fondant, with the pupils painted in with gel food coloring.

What are YOU baking for spring and Easter?  We’d love to hear about it!

Springtime Cookies and Cupcakes

I don’t know about you, but once Valentine’s Day is over, I start dreaming about and planning for SPRING!  I also start feeling like trying something new and making fun projects with my kids.  It’s probably a “getting past winter” surge or something.  Anyway, I thought I’d start collecting some fun spring cookie recipes and tutorials for cookies(cupcakes too!). And of course, I’m sharing them with YOU!

From Martha Stewart, Spring Cupcakes with Sugared Flowers… oh yes!  Make sure you click through the links in the post to learn how to make sugar flowers (so easy!).


From my favorite cookie maker, Sweet Sugar Belle… check out these Sweet Little Lamb Cookies.  This is actually a guest post on her site from Marian of Sweetopia.  Both Sugar Belle and Sweetopia write the best tutorials, and they really make me believe I can do this!

 

Found these adorable Spring Flower Cupcake Cones on an OC blog… love the idea, and I can think of lots of variations for using the cones as flower pots! She gives step by step instructions and photos on how to make flower cupcakes.

Check out the super cute Spring Cookies from Pink Little Cake, using fondant instead of icing… I KNOW I can do these!

Aren’t you in the mood for SPRING now??
