Special Cadbury Egg Cupcakes

Special Cadbury Egg Cupcakes
Here’s how we do Girl’s Night Out and a recipe for Special Cadbury Egg Cupcakes.
One of the great joys of my life is serving with the Young Women of my ward or congregation.  I meet with them each Sunday as we worship, learning together and on Wednesday nights we have activities.  We participate in service projects, learn skills, enjoy sports, camp each summer, work on YW Personal Progress and on occasion attend the Boise, Idaho Temple together.

Many people are surprised to learn that all worthy members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints may attend the temple and serve there from age 12 and through out their lives.  We attend as a group of Young Women and Young Men about every three months.  Individuals and families may attend when they would like to.  It is indeed one of my favorite places to go and participate in the Lord’s work here on earth.

Last night our YW group had a Spring party.  The oldest group of girls (16 to 18 years old) did all of the planning.  One was assigned to organized the food.  We dined on enchiladas, tossed green salad, chips and salsa. She invited another friend to make brownie sundaes.  Each of these Young Women had the help of her mother and did a great job.  Our meal was delicious!

Another YW planned the game, Loaded Questions, new to me.  Every few minutes the girls rotated places, mixing things up.  It was fun to see 12 year old girls with almost 18 year old gals.  Their answers were hilarious and I learned some fun things about each one!

We were served Raspberry Shirley Temples, so refreshing and pretty with our Spring colors.  I helped with the table decorations, Easter grass, jelly beans, fresh flowers and Special Cadbury Egg Cupcakes.

Note:  You can use a whole egg if you’d like.  I quartered mine to stretch them and it worked perfectly.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 27 cupcakes
Ingredients
  • 1 cake mix, your choice, (I used yellow)
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 7 large Cadbury Eggs, quartered
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Place paper liners in cupcake pans. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Put 1 tablespoon of cake mix in each liner. Add Cadbury Egg and cover with 1 more tablespoon of batter. Bake in preheated oven as directed on the box for cupcakes. Let cool and frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.
  2. For Frosting
  3. Place cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, soften cream cheese. Gradually add butter, and continue beating until smooth and well blended. Sift in confectioners' sugar, and continue beating until smooth. Add vanilla, and stir to combine.
Notes
Since I first posted this recipe Cadbury is making smaller eggs. They are the perfect size to add, 1 per cupcake.

We added cute Wilton Flower Cupcake Papers and a Spring Printable for a finishing touch @  It Is What It Is  (Hello Spring Favor Tags by Beth Proudfoot.)

It was an absolutely delightful evening for all of us.  In a heart-breaking world filled with loneliness, teens who taunt and tease, and so many sad young people, I am immensely proud of the approximately 20 girls I am blessed to associate with.  Their sense of unity, friendship, righteousness and service makes me sing with gladness…and I love their other 7 leaders too!

Please let me know if you’d like more information about a Young Women or Young Men group near you.

 Here’s to more sisterhood!

    What a fun YW activity. What were the questions? I would love to try that game. I am the YW President and have been for over 3 years now, I can always use new ideas! I love the cupcake wrappers, I haven’t seen these, so cute.

    I LOVE this idea! I used to be the Activity Days leader in our ward. My daughter is a Laurel now. Those cupcakes look delish! Do you have the recipe for the raspberry shirley temple’s? They look yummy! Fun fact: Shirley Temple thought the drink named after her was disgusting! Ha!Those cupcake wrappers are so fun! Where do you find those?
