Easter Cupcake Cones Recipe

Updated: Jul 14

Good Thyme Gal Blog Easter Cupcake Cones Recipe

Easter has always been a special holiday for me. It holds a special place in my heart. Easter is all about hope, renewal, and regeneration. The birth of a child. Getting married.

Meeting someone for the first time. Watching the beautiful majesty of a sunset as it unfolds. All of those things to me represent Easter. The feeling of hope and renewal is a powerful emotion because it is cloaked in love, and that love can propel you to live your best life and to love with your whole heart.

I love to cook for children. Some would say a child has a bad palate because of their age, but I beg to differ. If we stop and think about it, it has always been a child to tell us which candy is the best. Which cookie is the yummiest. Which frosting is the best. Where desserts are concerned, children are like truffle pigs. They can sniff out a good cupcake from a decent one. They are honest in their response. This Easter Cupcake Cones Recipe has always been a crowd-pleaser. They are great for birthdays, summer parties or just to make the day sweeter.

Enjoy! Let me know in the comments how it turned out.
