We made these cupcakes with my friend, Becky, and her two kids, Libby and Katie. These are apparently a tradition in Becky's family, and we were thrilled to share it with her and her girls. Too cute, I must say. And very kid-friendly. Just bake the cupcake flavor of your choice, frost them with colored frosting and dip in coconut that's been mixed with food coloring. Then add a few jelly beans and a pipe cleaner for the basket's handle.
Here are our Easter eggs, which Liv took a lot of joy in counting (seen here) and finding after her Dad hid them in the back yard. Someday, I'd like to make some permanently decorated eggs. I know you can poke holes in eggshells and blow out the insides, but that just sounds like a hassle, and I can't imagine very many of them would survive from year to year. I like the ideas found in Family Circle. Buy ceramic eggs, and decorate them using Japanese washi tape. Check it out:
Cute, huh? Maybe next year!
