More Than An Average Peep Cupcake♥

I think I am going to have to hostess a Peeps Cupcake Hunt for all the children in the neighborhood ---- Instead of an Easter Egg Hunt.
I dreamt up these Peeps cupcakes that look like they are all going to march together in the nearest Easter parade. 

..or maybe they are going to march right into your Easter basket to surprise you on Easter Sunday!? ♥

Yes, they are adorable-but they were made to be eaten.
Sixlet Pearls that look like bubbles.
Confetti.
Marshmallow Fluff based frosting.
Glittery Tiffany Blue Candy Melts dripping off the cupcake.





I went so Peep crazy, I started topping my cupcakes with other marshmallow delights.
Like making flowers out of Marshmallows.
And Frosting out of Marshmallow Fluff.

Perhaps the best part of finding the cupcake is eating it.....and then discovering another surprise?!! Like this Cadbury egg I baked inside of a cupcake...

I wasn't even sure if it was going to work. It was another late night cupcake experiment.  This is what my Cadbury egg looked like inside of a cupcake liner before pouring more chocolate batter on top of it and baking at 350.

I really do try to make the world a better place through my baking.
A cadbury egg, a marshmallow peep, and a cupcake. ♥ Does this make your world a better place, if even for a yummy moment?
To make the peeps look like they are swimming in the frosting, all you have to do is (oh my, this sounds sad).. cut the peep head and tail off of the marshmallow body.  Then use the sticky chocolate ganache as your glue to hold the head and tail on.
Peeps are much happier swimming in cupcake swirls & sprinkles.

  1. Maybe it's just me but, quite humourously, I find the "swimming" peeps look more like poor little birds weighed down by oil...like from a tragic oil spill. I am going to make these creme egg filled cupcakes tonight, sans oil-spill peeps.

  2. Sad that you can make something that's so bright and cute and good motif behind it so sad... I think you may need to eat more cupcakes to brighten your life and not look on the bad side of things... Or, keep those comments to yourself/ own blog.... Just saying, don't dampen somebody else's ideas :)
