I realize the Easter is tomorrow, but due to our schedules our family had our Easter Dinner last night. Yes, we had the traditional Easter Egg Hunt and crazy noisy conversations. I made everything (with the exception of the Spiral Ham) from my pantry and freezer.
I decided to add a sweet treat for dessert. I also decided to use my new mini-cupcake pan that I recently found on sale.
I made lots and lots of yellow cake cupcakes. Aren't they cute? I decided to dress them up for an Easter Treat.
I took some Coconut. I decided to transform it!
I wanted to turn it into 'grass'. I took my food coloring and added a few drops of green.
I put on a tight fitting lid.....and shook it to death!
Here is what it looked like afterwards. Isn't it cute?
I made some butter cream frosting (so good....it was hard not to sneak in a few tastes as I went). I didn't worry about making it 'pretty'....
Here is why, I turned over the cupcake and dipped the frosting side into the colored coconut.
Here is the cupcake after the coconut dredge and with a little "gummy bean" on top. ("Gummy bean" is what my little Grandson called Jelly Beans).
How did they go over? Pretty well....I just had a bazillion of them. So, I am possibly going to do some neighbor visiting today.
This is a simple thing to do, but a fun presentation. This was an easy treat and certainly brightened our traditional Easter dinner.
