directions to make Easter Cupcake

Step 1

Make the cupcakes as you normally would.  

Step 2

While they are in the oven, you can make the coconut. I used yellow food coloring for the chicks and green food coloring for the Easter baskets.  

Step 3

Put some coconut in a bowl and add a few drops of yellow food coloring, repeat this with the green food coloring.  

Rory loved to stir up the colors, she wanted to make colored coconut with all the colors!

Step 4

When the cupcakes are all finished baking let them cool.  

Step 5

Then add frosting as you would in any normal cupcakes.

Step 6

Then have your child dip the frosted cupcakes in the colored coconut.  (If there is not enough coconut on the cupcakes, please feel free to put some more on!)

OUR EXPERIENCE MAKING EASTER CUPCAKE

We made this into a learning game, for the eyes Rory had to find two of the same colored beans.

For the Easter Basket cupcakes, I would tell her to hunt for certain jelly bean colors, and she would have to find them.

It’s pretty easy, fun, and everyone loves them!
