Finally, a truly Easter themed recipe! I originally wanted to make Cake Pops for Easter, but with everything else going on, we decided to move that project out and make these Easter Basket Cupcakes instead. The recipe starts with a fairly basic vanilla cupcake. If you don’t have cake flour, feel free to substitute all purpose flour and cornstarch as suggested here in the Joy of Baking. Then you make a powdered sugar icing, which we chose to leave white. Finally, you add green tinted coconut, and some type of egg shaped candy. We had a cupcake assembly line going so it didn’t take long at all. They came out so cute, and tasted great although the frosting was almost too sweet. But not so sweet that I couldn’t finish the cupcake of course. It was the perfect little treat to end our meal!
