Don’t get us wrong; we’re the kind of kitchen DIY lovers that will bake anything and everything all year round, but there’s just something about spring that gets us really excited and ready to bake even more than usual! That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled lately for all kinds of recipes and treat decor ideas that will help us turn out favourite baked good into lovely spring sweets that would brighten just about anyone’s day.
Just in case you love the idea of making spring themed and flavoured cupcakes all season long just as much as we do, if no more, here are 15 of the very best recipes, designs, and ideas that we’ve come across so far in this year’s search for inspiration!
1. Buttercream daisy cupcakes
Are you quite an experienced baker but also quite experienced in decorating the things you bake so you’re looking for something with a bit of detail delicate because you like a challenge? Then we think you simply must take a look at the way I Am Baker made these delicious cupcakes and topped them with stunning daisies made entirely of buttercream!
2. Pink strawberry cupcakes
Just like we start craving sweet, bright cupcakes every year around springtime, do you start craving delicious types or lemonade, especially if it’s strawberry pink lemonade? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll get along quite well with this delicious, fragrant, and colourful pink strawberry cupcake recipe outlined step by step on Recipe Girl!
3. Lemon sunflower cupcakes
Did you really like the idea of making adorable cupcake treats that are decorated to look like flowers but you’re just not sure simple daisies are quite your thing, or dark chocolate cupcakes, for that matter? Them maybe you’d prefer to make something lighter and more colourful! We adore the way Erica Sweet Tooth made these fantastic lemon cupcakes that are topped with hand layered icing sunflowers. Their tutorial shows you how it’s done.
4. Easter basket cupcakes
Easter might have happened already for this spring, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bookmark a recipe or tutorial for next year just to make sure you’re prepared! We’re in love with the very decorative way that Baking A Moment turned their simple cupcakes into entire cute Easter baskets using icing, sprinkles, and candy Easter eggs.
