Easter Basket Cupcakes

So cute… and easy to make!








Make 6 cupcakes using your favorite cake recipe or a box mix. Let cool completely before frosting.

Frosting:
1 cup vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon butter flavoring
4 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup water
Green food coloring
Jelly beans
Wilton cupcake basket kit

Mix shortening, vanilla, and butter flavoring with an electric mixer on low speed. Alternately add powdered sugar and water until desired consistency is reached. You may need to add more powdered sugar or water to achieve consistency. Add  green food coloring to get desired color. Using the grass decorating tip, pipe frosting onto cupcakes making it look like grass. Add basket handles and jelly beans for eggs.

* I used
Wilton’s Kelly Green food coloring
