“Don’t Drop the Ball this Easter” Project #2

7 Apr

In fear that my Easter nests didn’t cut it as Easter baking (and that there will probably be none left by Easter … they’re that good), I had to whip up a batch of cupcakes. I love Easter … there’s so many cute ideas and so many fun colors to incorporate!

Ingredients
– your favorite carrot cake recipe (I promise, I’ll share mine one day ;))
– cream cheese frosting (here’s how to make mine)
– 12 ounces of shredded coconut
– a bag of egg shaped candies (I used speckled M&Ms)
– food coloring
– Peeps

Directions
– Bake cupcakes according to recipe
– Once cooled pipe a generous amount of frosting
– In separate bowls, dye your shredded coconut (or keep white)
– Roll dyed cupcakes into shredded coconut
– Place a few egg shaped candies in center or stick a toothpick into a Peep and stick in the middle of your cupcake

The best part? My favorite 7 year old helped my decorate these little gems.

Hope you’re having a great Easter weekend!
