There are so many cute candies and decorations at Big Lots, I wanted to find a way to be creative with them – beyond the Easter basket. I love this idea because you can invite the kids to join in the fun of decorating these cupcakes using a variety of small treats. I was able to find everything I needed – from the cupcake pan (with silicone handles!) and liners to the cake mix, the sprinkles, candies and even edible grass!
TIP: Make sure to only use edible items so people don’t get confused!
Cupcake pan and liners
Cake mix and frosting
Cookies and small candies
Food coloring and icing
Bake the cupcakes according to the package directions. Let cool. If you have white frosting, you can spoon it into bowls and add food coloring, or just use it as is and add the sprinkles. Some I used marshmallows!
Once you have the base of the cupcake decorated with frosting, add the embellishments on top. Get creative, you can use a chocolate bunny or a lollipop, even cookies!
Check out the crafter-math! We had so much fun decorating these cupcakes. You could even bake a sheet cake and layer the top with all these crazy candies!
