Decorated Party Cupcake Baskets

Posted: Wednesday, March 19, 2008



1 (18.5-ounce) box white cake mix, baked according to package

directions for 24 cupcakes

1 (15-ouce) can ready-made white frosting (or homemade; recipe


Green food coloring

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Jelly beans or pastel-colored candy-coated chocolates

Pipe cleaners


When cupcakes are cool, frost.

Bend pipe cleaners into the sides of each cupcake to form basket "handles." Set aside.

Place coconut in a small mixing bowl. Add a drop of green food coloring and mix to tint coconut, adding more coloring as desired. (Add coloring sparingly, as a little goes a long way.)

Place a spoonful of the coconut "grass" to the top of each cupcake. Place a few jelly beans or candy-coated chocolates on top of the coconut. Decorate pipe cleaners with a piece of bow-tied ribbon.

Kitchen Ade Note: If you prefer to make homemade frosting, here's an easy recipe.
