Easter Basket Cupcakes Add a Special Touch

Easter Basket Cupcakes Add a Special Touch

(Family Features) Go beyond store-bought marshmallow chicks and chocolate rabbits this year. Perfect for some-bunny special - or as a dessert to brighten any holiday table - A Tisket, A Tasket, A Cupcake Easter Basket cupcakes prove that it can be a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket.

"These cupcakes look impressive," says Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton, "yet they require just a few easy steps. Simply bake cupcakes and use your favorite cake mix to help speed up prep time. Cool completely, place into Picket Fence Cupcake Wraps or Basket Cupcake Wraps and pipe with green-tinted icing to create grass. If piping isn't possible, simply spatula ice the cupcakes; either way, they will impress."

Wilton has a basketful of ideas for finishing these little cakes. Perch miniature nest decorations filled with jelly beans on the icing grass for a playful take on a robin's springtime roost. Or, top cupcakes with pre-made icing flowers to echo the cheery hues of spring's first blossoms. These treats will be the perfect end to any Easter hop-pening.
