I had a little bit of my soaked fruits left over from Christmas, so I decided to use it to make some celebration cupcakes for Easter.

Although, I have made these cupcakes with Easter in mind they can be used for just about any celebration where you need quick snacks or dessert - birthdays, anniversaries, family get-togethers or just for snacking at home, especially if you have children in your household.

These celebration cupcakes are really simple to make and they make a colourful addition to your Easter menu or other celebration menu.You, your family and your guests will enjoy the fruity flavor of each and every bite.
