Easter Cupcakes

For an Easter neighborhood or family get together make some of these fun cupcakes. Your children or grandchildren will love them or will love to help make them!

Easter Basket Cupcakes
  • Make your favorite cupcake recipe or use a cake mix. 
  • Make one recipe of your favorite frosting or use canned frosting.
  • Frost the cupcakes with white frosting and decorate with colored coconut flakes to make the grass. Add jelly beans or your favorite Easter egg candies. Enjoy!
*To make coconut grass: place desired amount of coconut in a zip-lock bag and add a few drops of green food coloring mix and shake coconut in bag until coconut turns green. It's that easy! Give it a try!

Bunny Cupcakes
  • Make cupcakes and frosting.
  • Add food coloring to the frosting to make whatever color bunny you would like (pink, yellow, etc.)
  • Frost cupcakes making a little design for the mouth or use cake decorating tip to make mouth. 
  • Cut a small gum drop in half for the nose.
  • Use two chocolate chips for the eyes.
  • Two chick peeps for the ears. (I had to cut the heads off and use a tooth pick to help them stay on. They are turned upside down.) 
Have fun! and Happy Easter!
