Easter is two bun hops away and what better way to celebrate than by dedicating our weekly Celebrations Circle to the spring holiday. All of the lovely people out in webland have truly put their egg-heads to work to come up with some pretty inspiring Easter ideas that are sure to brighten your weekend.
This week's first idea comes from the talented lady behind Bouffe e Bambini. Believe it or not, these little flowers are actually potted cupcakes, making them an unexpectedly sweet addition to a holiday table. The best part about flower pot cupcakes is that they're not only sweet to eat, but they also double as festive table décor. Bouffe e Bambini's zinnias an expert choice, though I'm sure any seasonal flower would be just as charming.
Just when you thought macarons couldn't get any cuter, along hops the Raspberri Cupcakes blog and cute transmitters into overload. These bunny macarons give marshmallow peeps a major run for their money as they manage to combine a sophisticated French dessert with a festive bunny face to create one precious little snack.
This next idea just about takes the cake. Cupcake Project hatched this ingenious cake idea that is as fun to eat as it is to make. Don't worry you won't need a cake-laying chicken to enjoy these egg encased treats—you just bake the cake right into a hollowed out egg!

While we're on the topic of un-egg-spected treats here's a great idea from Not Martha that will add a little bit of color to your Easter. A festive spin on New Year's party poppers, this clever blogger transforms ordinary easter eggs into miniature treasure chests, just crack to discover the surprise within!
Heather over at Sprinkle Bakes agrees that the uses for the incredible edible egg are limitless. This breakfast turned dessert idea is without a doubt Easter-worthy, but would add a bit of whimsy to any spring day. Here mock eggs are crafted out of boiled custard with sweet mango yolks with scrumptious shortbread stick for dipping and coffee lollies for licking.
