Fantastic Easter Basket Cupcakes...I am going to use these as placecard holders

All I can say is FABULOUS! I found these on Disney's Family Fun Magazine. What a great way to dress up your Easter Dinner table and make each guest feel special. I have incorporated the whole natural element of the birds and the nest in my Spring Table decor that will take my table from Easter all the way through to Summer. These cupcakes are the perfect extra touch!

1 dozen cupcakes

1 bag jelly beans

2 cups white icing

Sweetened coconut, colored with green food coloring


First, frost the cupcakes with white icing. Bend a pipe cleaner or a piece of red licorice into an arch and push the ends into the sides of each cupcake.

Shake the shredded coconut in a stainless steel bowl. Sprinkle on food coloring bit by bit, mixing vigorously to distribute the color

Place a pinch of shredded coconut on each iced cupcake. Now place three jelly beans on the "nest" of coconut.

Tie a small ribbon bow on the pipe cleaner or licorice handle at a jaunty angle.

Put one cupcake basket by each place setting at Easter brunch or give them as gifts
