Every year for as long as I can remember my mom has made cupcakes for Easter. Every year as kids we couldn’t wait to decorate them.

What you need:
Cupcakes with white frosting
Coconut
Green food coloring
Pipe cleaners cut in half
1 bag of small chocolate bunnies

To color your coconut you just pour some in a bowl drop in a few drops of food coloring and mix it with a spoon. Roll your cupcakes in the coconut. Then take one bunny and push it down in the top center of the cupcake. We always put three jelly beans down in front of the bunny. Then take a pipe cleaner and bend it into a U for the handle. Many years we actually took the time to tie a tiny bow to the pipe cleaners.

These little Easter basket cupcakes have been a family tradition for us. Something we all remembered and looked forward to every year. This year my three year old got to help grandma decorate (and taste test) the Easter cupcakes.
