As Easter is already a time for adorable desserts such as the ubiquitous chocolate Easter eggs, it’s not too hard to get into the spirit of things with a few cupcakes of your own.

Your turn:

Whether there’s a special meal your family serves every Easter, or if you’ve worked out a great new meal idea that would suit the season perfectly, share the recipe with the Best Home Chef community!
