Vanilla Micro Egg Cup Cakes

As my son’s birthday was during a week day, I thought it would be nice for him to take some cupcakes to Cubs ( Scouts) to share with the pack and make his birthday a little more special.IMG_6420

Since his birthday is close to Easter, I thought I’d make some Easter inspired cupcakes using tiny micro eggs I found at Sainsburys


Kids love chocolate! These vanilla cakes with the added chocolate toppings make it a simple but yet great combination.IMG_6421
