Who doesn’t get excited to find those last few jelly beans in the bottom of your Easter basket? Hi, it’s Carrie Sellman from Half Baked, the cake blog for sweet inspiration. I’m excited to be back today, sharing a fun and super easy cupcake tutorial just in time for Easter. Today we’re taking the jelly bean from basket filler to the star of the show!
In a few simple steps, your cupcakes will be blooming with beauty and ready for Easter! (Or any other springtime celebration.) So easy, even the kids can get involved. Just ice the cupcakes and then provide bowls of jelly beans to your little ones. They’ll love seeing the flowers come to life… and sneaking a few jelly beans along the way! Plus, I think these cupcakes would go perfectly with Kim’s new Flower Garden Collection, don’t you?
Group cupcakes on a large white plate or cake stand to create an edible centerpiece for your Easter table. Or let a single cupcake serve as a beautiful and unique place setting for each dinner guest.
Jelly Bean Flower Cupcakes
TIPS: If your jelly beans are not all the same size, use the largest ones in the outside ring of petals. Save the smallest ones for the center.
I hope my Jelly Bean Flower Cupcakes provide a fun activity for your family and a delicious dessert for your Easter celebration!
