I used green food coloring to make some "grass" for a few of the cupcakes. The rest were topped with sugars and sprinkles from THIS Easter Sprinkle Assortment. And a few were topped with THESE cute Royal Icing Bunnies. Add in a few M&M flowers, jelly beans and even a Peep....all making great cupcake decorations. I even made a mini "basket" with wraps similar to THESE. Worried about cupcakes sinking to the bottom of your basket, no worries! I placed a few small cake pedestals in the basket to hold my cupcakes up to the top. Not a fan of finding last year's jelly beans under all that silly "grass"? Again, no worries! Cupcake papers make great little "bowls" to hold jelly beans, M&M's or mini eggs, whatever your favorite candy may be. I used THESE cute tulip looking papers in my basket. My basket was finished off with a bunny cookie on a stick (made in mass production by my Mom), a chocolate bunny and a few dyed eggs.
The last thing to do was "hide" my basket.....or maybe just take photos. It really is easy to make fancy looking Easter cupcakes last minute. Anyone searching for their basket on Sunday would love to find cupcakes inside.
|I know, not a cupcake picture, I just the love the blossoms on the plum tree in my parent's yard!|
