Easter Bake Sale Ideas: Easter Cupcakes
Bake sales are a great way to raise funds for schools or clubs, and we love a good excuse for cake! With Easter around the corner, these would look spectacular on the table after dinner too.
Ready, steady, bake!
#1. Easter Nest Cupcakes
Aren’t these just adorable? Simple yet so egg-tastic, these Easter chocolately nest cupcakes are ideal for bake sales as they’re easy to eat on the spot and a real crowd-pleaser.
#2. Chick Easter Cupcakes
These cute chick cupcakes from Mommy Savers have been decorated with coconut that’s been dyed with yellow food colouring, googly eyes and a jelly bean beak.
#3. Easter Carrot Cakes
It’s always nice if you can provide some healthy options on bake sale tables (there’s a lot of sugar going on there). Try our healthy carrot cake muffins and add some of Food Network’s cream cheese frosting on top. Finish the decor with a carrot made from orange fondant icing with green fondant stalks. Yum!
#4. Bunny Ear Cupcakes
Bouncy bunny ear cupcakes will be sure to catch the eye of kids and adults alike. They’re just too cute to pass and the best part is that they’re so easy to make. It’s a win-win situation.
If you like a zesty flavour, try our lovely lemony cupcakes and then just ice them and add the bunny ears using marshmallows.
#5. Rice Krispie Nests
For a quick and easy Easter treat, elevate your basic rice krispie treat by popping some mini-eggs on top to create your tasty neat nests!

#6. Beetroot Chocolate Cake
Since chocolate is so synonymous with Easter, a chocolate cake must be included. For a healthier alternative try this beetroot chocolate cake recipe. Although the recipe is slightly different from your usual chocolate cake, it’s still moist and perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee. You can also get as creative as you like with the decor.
#7. Easter Lamb Cake
A cute cuddly lamb that cleverly uses marshmallows as it’s wool, what’s not to love? This incredibly delightful Easter lamb cake comes from Delish. We love how straightforward this cake is to make, yet how striking it is for a bake sale.
#8. Easter Chocolate Cake
This Easter chocolate cake would make a yummy and indulgent Easter dessert or bake sale idea. Take a traditional chocolate cake recipe and transformed it into an Easter extravaganza, by covering with melted chocolate or double cream and topping it with mini-eggs.
#9. Vanilla Cake
This colourful vanilla cake recipe is a staple at bake sales, as it can transport easily and then sliced into bars. It’s a Madeira cake that is baked in a deep roasting dish (20 x 26cm) and decorated with icing and rainbow sprinkles.
#10. Layered Chocolate Cake
Indulgent and sweet, Ina Garten declared this double-layered chocolate cake to be “the most fabulous chocolate cake that I’ve ever made,” when Food & Wine ran her recipe in 2007. You could decorate with some mini-eggs for extra Easter fun.
#11. Easter Bunny Cake
This adorable sleepy bunny cake from Style Me Pretty would be a great addition to any Easter bake sale table. Use your favourite cake recipe, decorate with buttercream, and then pop some frosted sugar cookies on top for the bunny ears. Neat!
