Preheat oven to 375F. Line or grease muffin tins and set aside. In a food processor pulse the mini eggs until they are broken down into smaller pieces. In a large bowl, or your stand mixer.

for the batter:
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of white sugar
3 eggs 1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of cake flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of milk
1 1/2 cups of mini eggs

1 cup of softened salted butter
4 cups of powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons of milk or cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1Preheat oven to 375F. Line or grease muffin tins and set aside.
2In a food processor pulse the mini eggs until they are broken down into smaller pieces.
3In a large bowl, or your stand mixer. Cream together the butter and sugar for the cake batter. Once the sugar is no longer grainy add the vanilla and eggs one at a time.
4In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients and toss the mini egg pieces in with the flour. Alternating with the milk add a third of the dry ingredients to the batter and mix in, then add a third of the milk and mix. Alternate until all of the ingredients are incorporated in.
5Evenly distribute the batter into 18 lined muffin holes. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until lightly brown and baked all the way through. Remove from the oven and turn out onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely before icing them.
6For the icing: In a stand mixer add the butter and on a medium speed whip until it has softened a bit, around 4 minutes. Add half of the icing sugar and 2 tablespoons of cream and the vanilla. On a low speed mix it together, then add the rest while it is running. Turn up the speed to a high speed (on my mixer a level 8) and allow to whip for 8 minutes.
7Separate the icing into three bowls and add the food colouring you would like, I used teal, violet and golden yellow. Once the colour is mixed in place in piping bags with large round tips. Swirl the icing onto the tops of the cupcakes. Add egg shaped sprinkles and whole Cadbury mini eggs on top.
