easter egg on grass

Decorated Easter egg cupcake

You can get quite creative with this idea: decorate a chocolate candy Easter egg and place it upon a next of coconut grass.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; shredded coconut tinted green with food coloring; unwrapped flat-bottomed chocolate egg (found this one, wrapped in foil, by Russell Stover in my grocery store’s bulk foods section); various writing gels and other decorations.

How to Make It: Use gel or liquid food coloring to tint coconut green (a plastic zip-close bag works well for this). Sprinkle on cupcake. Unwrap chocolate. Use writing icing, candy confetti, and other edible treats to decorate your egg just how you like it. Place on top of cupcake.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; pink frosting (it comes in a can, too) mellowcreme Easter bunny or other shape; shaved coconut; green dye.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Tint coconut green and place a bit in the center of the cupcake for grass nest. Add bunny.
