Edible Easter Basket

Here’s an easy yet lovely edible item for your table.

Items you’ll need:

  • cupcakes (homemade or store bought)
  • pipe cleaners or licorice
  • white icing
  • shredded sweetened coconut
  • green food coloring

Start out with the dozen cupcakes (or as many as you’ll need). Frost the tops of each cupcake with white icing. Take the pipe cleaner (or licorice) and bend it into an arch placing each side into the sides of the cupcakes.

Shake the coconut and food coloring together in a stainless steel bowl adding the coloring slowing and stir vigorously so the color is even. Place the green coconut on each cupcake top and add a few jelly beans on top. Complete you decorations with a small ribbon and place it next to each plate. You may also want to use them as place cards. Simply attach a small card with ribbon to each handle.

I’m sure your quests will enjoy these little treats.
