Mini Easter Basket Cupcakes

If you’ve followed the site for a while, you’ll remember these Easter basket cupcakes from a couple of years ago. If so, I hope you don’t mind seeing them again. If not, please enjoy them now. They are simple and oh so cute. And I know I’m putting them up last minute, but I didn’t want Easter to go by without something super cute on the site for you to look at.

Here is the original post for all the what nots and below are some pretty photos just for your viewing pleasure.

  1. Oh my gosh, these are adorable! Sour punch straws for an Easter basket handle … how clever!

  2. So Smart!!

  3. We are a group of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our society. Your website provided us helpful content to try. You’ve carried out a solid job and our entire community will be grateful to you.

  5. I am praying for your surgery(s)–which includes your mom!! God is good and He has brought you this far, hon and He ain’t gonna dump ya now!!!! Love you lots! :-))

  6. God bless you and your mom, it will all work our just fine. You will be back baking soon than you can shake a stick! All the best!

  7. I just stumbled across your website and I love it!! I can’t wait to try some of your recipes.

    p.s. I’m a dialysis nurse and I want to wish you the very best. I hope your transplant happens soon and you’ll do well with dialysis in the meantime. God bless

  8. I made them this Easter for my first grade class party and a church bake sale. I was so happy to see that Fresh Market had everything on a display for them even still in 2011. I’m sure your Eye Candy cupcakes created a great demand for everything. Well, make class went crazy and tore into them so fast I didn’t take a single pic. Oh well, the memory still lingers on. The only little thing that went wrong was some of my pink sour straws broke in half overnight and had to be quickly replaced. (Kids freak over stuff like that!) Can’t wait until next Easter! Maybe Cake Pops!!

  9. Your San Francisco trip looked amazing. As did your boots that I couldn’t help but notice! Glad to hear it was fun, I can’t imagine that judging chocolate cupcakes wouldn’t be.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you…go kidneys!!!!!!

  10. Evaluation seems to take forever — my brother and I are going through the process now. Hang in there!

  11. Can’t wait till next Easter!!! those are adorable, great ideas for kids!!!

  12. Very cute those are good for Easter great idea I love your blog your a awesome women.

  13. Yum! These look incredible! I tried making some yummy Easter treats this year on my blog, but nothing as cute as these cupcakes – there’s always next year, right? :)

  14. Hi!
    I just found your website and I am reading about a transplant. Are you in need of one? Sorry, I’m just not sure as to what is going on w/ your health. Would love to talk to you as to about what I went thru. Double Transplant. Kidney & Pancreas. Just wanna give you hope if that is what you are going thru. Please let me know!!!

    All my love & prayers!!!!!


  16. where did you get the cupcake liners you used?

  17. WOW looks really cute! tnx for the ideas. —

  18. How adorable!! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  19. These are super cute! I hope that you had a wonderful Easter. So glad that you updated. I’ve been thinking about you and hoping that that you are doing well. I’m praying for you :)

  20. Soooo cute!! :)
    I hope everything works out with your health, I’ll keep you in my prayers.

  21. Good to hear from you, hope the Easter bunny brought you some good news. :o)

  23. Hi! I have been following your blog for a while, and congrats on the book! What an accomplishment to be in print! I believe I will be getting your book as a gift from my mother soon enough to coordinate with my new store, Enchanted Wishes!

    When I was 18, my father ended up on dialysis, which was 30 years ago. Technology and medications have come a long way since then. My father was one of the lucky ones to receive a transplant at the age of 50, and at that time, he was told he was too old for a transplant. Again, how times have changed. Due to the generosity of a family, my father received 2 small donor kidneys, because the doctor said they would grow. My father lived 27 years with those donated kidneys, which gave him and my family 27 more precious years with him. He always stayed in the positive, which sounds exactly where you are…..believe, and it will come true! XOXO

  24. Good thoughts and many prayers still coming your way! Lovely Easter baskets :)

  25. Hi, Angie! You’re right . . . NO News is DEFINITELY GOOD NEWS!!! Hang in there :o)

  26. Wishing you the best and hoping you get results soon. On another note, I have your “Cake Pops” on order and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  27. I check in all the time to see if you’ve posted. I send my best wishes to you, that this time passes quickly and has a great outcome for all concerned. Peace be with you.

  28. I made these for Easter this year! They are completely precious and so easy to do. Thanks so much for the idea!

  29. May I say that you are amazing? I discovered you through a newsletter around valentine’s day with the candy heart cake pops and they were a huge hit at work. I did the same thing for easter only I did eggs & bites. I used a clean plastic egg and used it as a mold. I guess you could have called it an interesting cupcake, because even using the smallest eggs, they were more than 1 bite, but delish & an even bigger hit. :) Thank you for doing what you do and being such an inspiration! Next up, Mickey Mouse Pops! Well, after the graduation pops! :D

  30. I hope you had a blessed Easter!! Take it easy and I’m sending prayers!

  31. Still praying for you!! Thanks for the post :)

  32. I do remember those and have done a few variations through the years! I *always* love seeing YOUR creations though—-they always are *way* better than my own. ;)

    Praying for your kidneys! And for you! Happy Easter!

  33. Super cute! Belated Easter blessings! In my thoughts and prayers.

  34. These look lovely and have given me great inspiration.
    no news is good news, i hope that you do get some good news soon. all my best wishes

  35. Happy Easter! Thanks for reposting. They deserve another time in the spotlight. They are super cute.
    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  36. My family and I will be walking in the Boston Kidney walk next month in honor of my in-laws. One is a recipient, the other the donor.

  37. praying for you and your mom, lovely lady. my daughter gave my then 72 year old dad (her grandpa) one of her kidneys 11 years ago!

  38. Thanks for the post, Bakerella! My thoughts are with you!

  51. All blessings to you. I hope you had a great Easter. They are not “days waiting for news”, they are just days, given to us to enjoy.
    You have helped so many of us to enjoy our days, I hope we can help you to enjoy yours as well.

  52. I love it! You are so darn creative!!

  53. Thanks for re-posting. My kids would love those!!

  54. Super cute!!! The Easter Bunny left my eight kids a letter this year explaining that because of all the bad weather we’re having, he would be coming back later in the week to give them all their Easter fun. I think I might just get some extra candy and let them all make their own cupcakes for dessert, just for some added fun. (And because they were all pretty good sports about postponing the egg hunt and stuff!!!!)

  55. happy easter to you too ! the cup cakes are gorgeous………..

  56. Thanks for this post! So cute! Hang in there, Bakerella! Thinking of you often and hoping for good health for you soon.

  127. I never comment, but I want you to know – you need to stop worrying about us.
