Easy Easter Bunny Bottoms – A Cinnamon Roll Treat

My favorite fun food ideas are those that are spontaneous when I’m just trying to make my kiddos happy. {grin} My Easter Bunny Bottom Cinnamon Roll Treat couldn’t get any easier!

Easy Easter Bunny Bottom - A Cinnamon Roll Treat | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Yep. You got it from the pictorial. The only difference in these and normal cinnamon rolls is cutting a mini marshmallow in half and adding it the center. Oh yeah… and the giggles you get when you ask your kids if they’d like another “Bunny Bottom.”

By the way, if you have a kiddo with dairy food allergies like I do, the Kroger brand is yummy and has no dairy!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

Easy Butterfly Cupcakes

With spring here and Easter just around the corner, this weekend I whipped up some pretty and super easy butterfly cupcakes for the family.

Easy Butterfly Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Every year I plant lantanas in my front flower beds. When I was a child in Alabama my grandmother had a variety of lantanas all around her yard and lining her drive. They were beautiful AND they attracted butterflies! Little yellow and white butterflies… so dainty and fragile. I can’t wait for them to arrive this summer.

Easy Butterfly Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

So in honor of spring I decided to make some simple butterfly cupcakes in five easy decorating steps: 

  1. Ice – coat cupcakes with white icing.
  2. Dip – dip and roll cupcake tops in yellow sugar, coating the cupcake all over.
  3. Wing it – add two yogurt or chocolate covered pretzels for the wings. These are lemon yogurt. YUM!
  4. Body – using pearl yellow sixlets, create a segmented body with four candies.
  5. Antennae- add two small chocolate sprinkles for the antennae. I prefer using tweezers so I don’t destroy the icing.

Tip: For perfect color on your cupcake wrappers, bake in white wrappers and once cooled set inside pattern or colored wrappers.

Plus, these pretty little cupcakes are perfect for my bugs, bees and butterflies party supplies that I shared on Friday.

St. Patrick’s Day: Mini Key Lime Pie Leprechaun Doughnut Recipe

Are you thinking green for St. Patrick’s Day yet? Well you really should try these mini Key Lime Pie Doughnuts from my lovely contributor Deanna of Mirabelle Creations!

Key Lime Pie Leprechaun Doughnuts for St. Patrick's Day | Mirabelle Creations for TheCelebrationShoppe.com

In Deanna’s words: My son is a little fascinated with leprechauns this March.  His fascination might be because they are quite mischievous, just like him!  Between a leprechaun’s mischievous nature, their pots of gold, and their mini stature, what’s not to love?

For St. Patrick’s Day, there are so many fun Leprechauns ideas for kids.  My little guy wanted to make a Leprechaun Trap this year.  Some other fun ideas include: green milk left by a leprechaun, the leprechaun leaving little gold coins around the house for the kids, and the leprechaun turning the toilet water green. 

Key Lime Pie Leprechaun Doughnuts for St. Patrick's Day | Mirabelle Creations for TheCelebrationShoppe.com

For a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast this year, I plan to leave my son some of these Leprechaun Lime Doughnuts (which are Mini Key Lime Pie Doughnuts).  They are healthy treat alternative to a fried doughnut.  Also, they are Leprechaun size and incorporate green without having to use green dye!

Mini Key Lime Pie Doughnuts (adapted from A Zesty Bite)

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons key lime or lime juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Zest of two small limes
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 graham cracker, crushed

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray the cavity of a mini doughnut pan with cooking spray.
  2. Add key lime juice to milk.  Let sit for about 5 minutes, so milk sours.  In a small bowl, mix together egg, vanilla, and butter.  Add soured milk to ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and zest of one lime.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until completely combined.  Add batter to a piping bag.  Fill the doughnut cavities approximately 2/3 full by piping batter into cavities.
  4. Bake approximately 8 minutes or until doughnuts are golden brown.   Cool for about 1 minute, then remove from pan.  Let doughnuts cool.
  5. For the glaze: Stir together 1 tablespoon milk and powdered sugar.  Add a little more milk until you achieve the desired consistency.  Dip top half of doughnuts into glaze.  Sprinkle remaining lime zest and graham crackers crumbs on top of glaze.

Makes approximately 24 mini doughnuts.

St. Patrick’s Day: Rainbow Cupcakes & Gumball Clouds

If you’ve not noticed, I like to bake. {grin} So with St. Patrick’s Day coming and an art party to plan for, I decided to make some rainbow cupcakes!

Rainbow Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Aren’t they pretty!

Rainbow Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

The first thing I did was grab all my gel food coloring and tint my batter. After the cupcakes cooled I used the same gel icing to tint white frosting.

Rainbow Cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Top each cupcake with a sixlet, use crepe paper streamers for your rainbow and make sure your creative cupcakes end at a gumball cloud! Or, for St. Patrick’s Day, your rainbow might end at a pot of gold, like Rolos!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

St. Patrick’s Day: Easy Shamrock Cupcakes with Mint Frosting

It’s time to start thinking green! These fun 4-leaf clover, Lucky green, cupcakes with mint icing are the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Lucky 4-Leaf Clover Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

I love working with candies.

St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This fun little cupcake is super easy with just a few goodies. Green chocolate covered sunflower seeds from Candy Galaxy (they have every color candy!) and Breyer’s chocolate sprinkles (the only sprinkles my kids actually like!).

St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And the mint frosting is a cinch. There are tons of amazing recipes from scratch, but when in a hurry I use Pillsbury icing (dairy-free for my little guy and always fluffy) and mix in 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract.

And since this is St. Patrick’s Day, I also mix in green gel food coloring (the other is too watery) until I get my desired color. (TIP: Tint your icing and let it set for five minutes before adding more food coloring. It will darken a bit.)
