P.S. For the Easter Egg Cakes, you’ll need an Egg Mold/Cake Pan. Here are a couple examples from Amazon: Egg Cake Pan & Egg Mini Treats Cake Pan (both by Wilton®).

    Love them all! I saw a trick for the “chick” ones… ad a half of a donut hole to the top of your cupcake to give him a better “roundness”
