Easy Easter Cupcake or Muffin Decorations

Easy Easter Egg Cupcakes that are dairyfree, eggfree and nutfree

I don't know about you, but sometimes I find candy-focused holidays frustrating. I see the aisles of pink, purple and yellow colored bags full of Easter candy, knowing most of them aren't safe for Little Guy. On one hand, it's certainly better for our health (and teeth!) not to have access to all that candy. But sometimes it's a little discouraging too.

So, how do we move past those feelings and still have our own fun?

First, by remembering the true purpose of Easter. Second, having Easter fun that's not food focused. And finally, by focusing on what we CAN have of course. And there IS so much allergy-friendly candy and sweets Little Guy can have!

I just wanted to show you all the fun we've had with food allergy-friendly candy and sweet stuff.  It's so easy to find ideas. I mean, just type in "Easter cupcakes" on Pinterest, and you'll find SO many cute decorations. 

But as working mama with little free time to spare, I decided to keep it simple.  

We topped sweet muffins with melted marshmallows, sprinkles and jelly bean flowers...

And we topped this bunny with SunButter as a sort of "frosting" on a sweet muffin. Plus Let's Do Organic Shredded Coconut. I'd like to try this again with fruit for the bunny instead of the candy. It would make  perfect Easter breakfast treat!

And look at all of our favorite sweet treats. Food allergy-friendly, colorful and fun.
