Easter Egg Stuffed Cupcakes

By  | 

Sam, like most kids, loves an Easter egg hunt. We always do one inside and if the weather cooperates, we add an outdoor version, too. Of course you never know if the weather will be agreeable but you have to be prepared with LOTS of colored eggs to hide. At least, that’s what the little Easter Bunny helper that lives at our house says.

Sam LOVES to dye eggs and never tires of mixing the rainbow of colors. That means I try to think of additional ways to use his creations so he can make even more. No, I am not indulgent. I’m making memories! Since we’re having company for Easter, we’re going to include some of Sam’s favorite eggs in the centerpiece and arranged in small grass nests at each place setting.

However, even a non-indulgent mama has to put a cap on egg dying. Ever heard of bait-and-switch? I came up with an excellent way to satisfy Sam and myself: we made Easter egg-stuffed cupcakes.

Pillsbury Devil's Food Cake

Don’t these cupcakes look like a piece of spring? I love the way the sweet colors and sprinkles look and Sam loved “mixing up a moment” in the kitchen with me. My #1 helper is becoming quite adept at creating in the kitchen! Pillsbury™ Cake Mixes and Frostings make baking a very do-able family kitchen project that yields great results.

When we head out to Walmart, Sam is always ready to stock our cart with the Pillsbury™ mixes because he knows it means we’ll be having fun together in the kitchen. No, I am not being overly indulgent! The cake mixes are an inexpensive and easy way to create fun memories—that we can eat!
