Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing with you my recipe for Easter cupcakes with nests. They are so delicious and perfect for Easter after good lunch. I love making cupcakes and specially for some holiday. They are absolutely easy to make so let's get started.

1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Stick Un-Salted Butter, softened
2 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/8 tsp Salt
1 1/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/3 Cup Whole Milk

For the Frosting:
      1. stick of unsalted butter, softened
    ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
    1 16oz Box of Powdered Sugar

Chocolate nests:
    125 g chocolate, melted 
    Shredded Wheat 
    Mini Eggs 

    1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your cupcake tin with liners and set aside.

    2) In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla and cream together until you get a smooth mixture. Add the dry ingredients and with the speed on low mix together and slowly add the milk and just mix everything to combine. DO NOTOVERMIX! Make sure you give everything a good stir with a spatula from the bottom to incorporate any bit that wasn’t mixed.

    3) Scoop the batter into your lined cupcake tin, make sure its only filled ¾ of the way up because they will rise. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool for about 45 minutes before frosting.

    4) To make the frosting combine together powdered sugar and butter and vanilla extract and mix 5 minutes until the frosting look white. Add the frosting in a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes.

    Make chocolate nests by adding broken shredded wheat into the melted chocolate, shape into a nest, leaving a hollow centre. Allow to cool. When cold put some mini eggs into the nest.

    6)These little beauties are so delicious and beautiful that I promise you everybody is going to think that you went to a fancy shmancy bakery and bought them. I make cupcakes very often because they always get a wow reaction from everybody and of course they are delicious!

    Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter!
      Thank you for reading!
