Spring Time Cupcakes

Treats are always a big hit in our house. I love bringing the whole family together in the kitchen to bake… or let’s be honest, to decorate baked things.

This year we celebrated our little Birdie by making Birdie’s Nest cupcakes- chocolate (Max’s favorite) with vanilla buttercream frosting, coconut and mini Cadbury eggs (LOTS of Cadbury eggs were eaten during the making of these cupcakes). PS if you don’t feel like baking, just buy some cake mix, some premade frosting, and make the fun of the project the decorating and not the baking. 

Super Moist Chocolate Cupcakes

3/4 cup organic unbleached all purpose white flour
