Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

There's no denying that Easter has some of the best seasonal treats all year.  Cadbury Creme Eggs and Robin's Eggs top my personal list of favorites.  I love the cuteness of marshmallow peeps, but have never really fully embraced them (although I do prefer them when they are stale).  

When I saw a link to these Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes on the Hip Hostess, I had to make them stat!  So adorable!

I had these cupcake liners I'd been waiting to use, and they couldn't be more perfect for Spring:

Use your favorite chocolate cake batter, or simply use a boxed mix.  Pour into cupcake liners and place a frozen mini Cadbury Creme Egg in the center, then cover with batter using a spoon.  Beginning with a frozen egg ensures you will still retain the creme center in your cupcake rather than have it completely melt away in the baking process.

Once the cupcakes have baked/cooled, you are ready to frost! Prepare some butter cream frosting and dye a portion of it yellow for decorating.

You can use a plastic zip lock bag to pipe the frosting - just fill the bag with frosting and snip a corner of the bag adjusting for the desired thickness of the frosting.

Now pipe a round of white frosting around the outside perimeter of the cupcake and fill in the center with the yellow frosting to duplicate the inside of a creme egg :-)

I topped my cupcakes with a mini solid Chocolate Cadbury Egg, but you could also use another mini Creme Egg to top them off (how pretty are these cupcake liners as you peel them away?)
