Easter Basket Cupcakes Recipe

Ingredients:

• 1 box of cake mix (any flavor will do)

• 1 container of frosting

• Green food coloring

• 1 bag of jelly beans

• 1 bag of coconut

• 1 bag of Twizzlers candy

Directions:

1. Bake cupcakes according to package directions.

2. While the cupcakes bake, mix the coconut with a few drops of green food coloring. You may want to start off with ˝ cup of coconut and two drops of food coloring, and then increase each as needed.

3. After they have cooled completely, spread the frosting over the top of the cupcakes.

4. Sprinkle each cupcake with the green coconut.

5. Using the jelly beans for the “eggs”, place three to four jelly beans on top of the coconut.

6. Carefully take one Twizzlers piece and place one end in the side of the cupcake. Place the other end over the cupcake and into the opposite side, forming the basket handle. You may need to cut a few inches off if it’s too long.

Easter Bunny Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

• 1 box of cake mix (any flavor will do)

• 1 container of frosting

• 1 bag of coconut

• 1 bag of Twizzlers candy

• Green food coloring

• 2 round cake pans

Directions:

1. Prepare cake batter according to package directions.

2. Pour the batter into two round cake pans, and bake accordingly.

3. After the cake has baked and cooled completely, remove one of the cakes to the middle of a cookie sheet. This cake will be the bunny’s face. Be
sure to leave enough room to place bunny ears at the top of the cake.

4. Spread frosting over the top and sides of the cake.

5. The second cake will be used to create bunny ears. Cut out bunny ears in the shape of an oval or a tear drop. Carefully place the bunny ears on the top of the bunny face. Spread frosting over the tops and sides of the ears.

6. If you have leftover cake after the make the ears, you can cut out several Easter egg shapes, and then decorate. You can also cut out a piece of cake in the shape of a bow tie, and place it at the bottom of the cake.

7. Once you have placed the bunny ears (and any other accessories), it’s time to decorate!

8. Sprinkle the coconut over the bunny face and ears. If you’d like a different color face, simply mix a drop or two of desired food coloring with the coconut before sprinkling on the cake.

9. Thinly slice some of the Twizzlers to use for whiskers. The Twizzlers can also be used for the mouth, nose, and eyes. Simply cut and mold it to the shape that you desire (Or you can purchase them in bite size pieces).

10. Jelly beans, or any other type of candy that you have on hand will work out great for decorating.

11. Mix one cup of coconut with two drops of food coloring, adding more of each until the desired shade of green (for the grass) is reached.

12. Sprinkle the green colored coconut over any areas where you can still see the cookie sheet. This will really make the bunny cake stand out.
