Jelly Bean Easter Egg Cupcakes

Here is a sweet, simple and fun dessert  for your Easter celebration.  I made these for my daughter's preschool celebration and everyone seemed to love them.  

All you do is take your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe (or use a box mix to keep things simple).  Then add some swirly frosting to mimic Easter grass and top with speckled jelly bean eggs.

 I found my speckled jelly bean eggs at Target but I've also seen them at the grocery store.

Use the "grass" piping tip to achieve the Easter grass look.  If you do not own one of these you can find them at a store like Michael's ...or just spread some frosting on with knife (nobody will mind...:))

A look at our day:



Vanilla cake mix (homemade or from a box)
Buttercream dyed green (homemade is best)
Jellybean eggs


Bake the cupcakes according to directions.  Let cool completely.  Make the buttercream.  

Using the "grass" frosting tip, pipe swirls onto the cupcakes.  Top with jellybean eggs.  Enjoy!
