Easter basket cupcake with licorice handle
Make a bunch of these cute and easy baskets for your next Easter party.
What You Need: 1 cupcake; green icing; coconut flakes; green food coloring; jellybeans; red licorice strands.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Tint coconut flakes by adding green food coloring (liquid works better than gel in this case) into a zip-close plastic bag and shaking it around a bit, or just stir it around in a bowl. Sprinkle coconut around edge of cupcake, leaving a little area in the center for jellybeans. Add jellybeans for eggs. Insert length of red licorice into cupcake for handle, being sure to push it in far enough that it will stay securely.
