I have been dreaming up these cupcake toppers every single night since I made my candy rainbows and birthday star cupcake toppers. I just love how these candy toppers add a special touch to the cupcakes and I have to say making them is extremely addictive and eating them is as well. We are in charge of bringing the dessert this Easter, so I was excited to add these cupcakes with their Easter Bunny and Easter egg toppers to the mix!
I really enjoyed making the candy rainbows and candy stars and as I made each one I learned a little bit more about how to make things go a bit smoother throughout the process. So I think you’ll have great success in making these if you follow the steps. They really are fun to make, so fun, in fact, I had my kiddos make them as well. Making these Easter eggs and Bunny cupcake candy toppers turned out to be a great art-craft-cooking project for my kids Easter themed week for Homeschool. I just love the creativity they put into these and feel like they couldn’t be any cuter!
My kids were beyond excited to get to make these and were counting down all day! When they were making them they had a blast! My son who is almost 7 had an easy time creating patterns and making what he set out to. My daughter’s cupcake toppers turned out adorable, though at 6 she couldn’t make exactly what she had in mind. I, of course, love how theirs turned out!
These can be changed up in so many different ways to make them your own. We found that we like using white to look like the egg portion of the candy and then another Easter color to outline and decorate the eggs. I have yet to get too creative with the bunnies but have some fun ideas in mind for how to.
How to make Easter Candy Cupcake Toppers:
What you need:
- Candy melts in the colors of your choosing
- Sprinkles (optional)
- 2 oz. plastic squeeze bottles
- Wax paper
- Mom Collaborative Easter Candy Templates
What you do:
- Print the candy templates.
- lay down candy templates with wax paper on top.
- Melt 1 cup of candy melt with 1 tsp. Crisco by heating in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time and maybe less as you get closer. If you heat it too fast the candy will harden.
- Stir before it is all the way melted. It will be warm enough to stir and melt all the candy melts together even before they are all melted.
- Using a spatula scrape the melt into the 2 oz. plastic squeeze bottle
- Follow the template outline and fill in with the candy melts with your own unique designs.
- If you’d like to outline in one color and fill in with another color, simply let the first color dry for a few minutes and then fill in with the other color.
- Also, if you are using sprinkles you will need to be ready to apply them immediately on each one, one at a time, as the candy will harden and not except the sprinkles very shortly.
I hope your families have fun with this Easter project and enjoy the candy toppers afterward!
