If you are looking for an easy, festive treat to make for Easter, you still have plenty of time to make these adorable cupcakes.
Just make your favorite flavor cupcakes and then get your frosting ready. I use my own buttercream but you can use canned if you do not like to make your own.
Get a decorating bag ready and use a Wilton Multi-Opening Decorating Tip 233. Tint your frosting green with Wilton Gel Coloring or you can use liquid food coloring if you want. Then just squeeze and pull up to create grass.
In the grass you can put a PEEPS bunny or chick, little M & M eggs, Robin’s Eggs, Jelly Beans, or chocolate covered almonds. You can also use some white buttercream and make little nests with an open crown tip and fill with candy eggs. You can sprinkle the nests with sugar decor to make them sparkle or coconut flakes.
Another great tip I got from a friend is to bake your eggs instead of boiling for coloring. You just put your eggs in a muffin tin and bake at 325 degrees for exactly 25 minutes. Do not over bake! You will get great eggs with no cracks! I tried it and love it!
Happy Easter from Mommy Ramblings!!!
