How is it almost Easter already? This year is flying by! Today I bring you these adorable yet wowing Easter Grass Cupcakes. They are so pretty and will wow your guests for your Easter dessert table for sure. The kiddos could even get in on the fun decorating action by adding the peanut M&M eggs on top.
These Easter Grass Cupcakes are a simple cupcake recipe that you have all the ingredients on hand I’m sure. Then get to the fun part, the decoration of the Easter Grass Cupcakes. I could not find any green frosting but I know I have seen it in stores, so if you can find the right shade of green it makes it even easier.
I just added a little green food coloring to white frosting since I had those on hand. I do this alot when I am making my kids birthday cakes for the perfect color to match their theme. I love creating the custom colors for events sometimes, gives it a more personal touch. Once you have the frosting color you like simply pipe the grass and have the kiddos add their accents. Jelly beans would work well too but we are fans of chocolate in this house so we went with M&M’s.
Once these Easter Grass Cupcakes they almost look too cute to eat, ALMOST! They are delicious!
