Spring has arrived and with Easter just around the corner, it’s time for our roundup of the BEST Easter and springtime cakes, tutorials, and ideas!
Every spring, I’m always in the mood for decorating cakes and sweets in pastels, for covering cakes with buttercream flowers, and of course…CUTE bunny themes! (Okay, this is probably an accurate description of my cake style year-round but..)
Today I’m going to share some of our favorite springtime and Easter cakes & cupcakes that we’ve created over the years, as well as some amazing creations from other cake pages! In addition to beautifully decorated cakes, we’re also featuring some favorite cake flavors for spring and Easter gatherings.
Enjoy scrolling through! Most of these spring and Easter cake and cupcake designs are free tutorials but we’ve featured a few our our member cake video tutorials also. I hope that you find an idea or two that inspires you to hop into the kitchen and whip up some cuteness!!
