As I said, cupcakes can be made in many sizes. The mini size is great for a child or someone who simply needs a bite of something sweet. The regular size, using ¼ cup of batter, to me is the “perfect” cupcake. Of course, for those who really love this delicacy, a “jumbo” using ½ cup of batter would be the perfect size. There are also a variety of molds on the market to use when you are learning how to make an Easter cupcakes recipe. I am using an egg mold to make eggs and bunnies for Easter. This also takes ¼ cup of batter; the same as a regular cupcake.

Pictured Above is the pattern for the Cross Cupcake Holder

I am going to make an Easter table centerpiece that you can use when you learn how to make an Easter cupcakes recipe. I have a leftover piece of Styrofoam. From it I am cutting: ONE 12 X 12 INCH PIECE; ONE 7 X 7 INCH PIECE; ONE 2 X 21 INCHES for cross base; ONE 2 X 8 INCHES for the cross T; EIGHT 2 X 2 INCHES for the legs.

To assemble the holder for your Easter cupcakes recipe cut holes in the centers of the 12 X 12 piece and the 7 X 7 piece so the cross base fits down through the holes. Using a STYROFOAM GLUE, glue 4 legs on each of the square pieces and let dry; glue the cross “T” across the base. After drying, turn the square pieces over placing the large one on the bottom and the smaller one on top. Gently push the cross down through the squares. The cross should stand up and hold the two layers in place. Decorate as you like and place the cupcakes around the squares.
