Spring Cupcakes

My mom was nice enough to give me a little break in the middle of this lovely Spring Break. She took Hanna to her house where they made these amazing Spring cupcakes. Let’s get to it… they aren’t hard, but they sure are cute.

What your going to need:

Shredded coconut
Wilton Green color mist
A confetti cake mix
paper cupcake liners
Jelly beans
white cake frosting (or you could make your own)

Here we go…

1. Put your coconut out on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Spray it with the green color mist. Mix it up until all the coconut is nicely colored green.

2. Put your cake mix together as directed on the box.

3. Pour the mix into paper lined cupcake holders and bake as directed. And lick the beaters while you wait.

4. When the cupcakes cool a bit then frost.

5. Once you’ve got the frosting on, dip the top of the cupcake in the colored coconut.

6. Then add the jelly beans ~ you have to push them down into the frosting a little so they’ll stay put.

There you have it, quick easy Spring Cupcakes that are not only cute, but delicious. 🙂

What’s your favorite cupcake to bake with your kiddo? I’m looking forward to trying a couple others as well…

These Gold at the end of the Rainbow cupcakes and these Snickers Cupcakes that make my teeth hurt just looking at them but look too delicious not to try at least once. 🙂 Please share your favorite cupcake recipes to bake with your kiddo in the comments section!

    Thank you so much for the mention. Word of the wise, do not do the rainbow cupcakes unless you are planing to make them over and over again. My 3 year old LOVED making them so much that she asks for them on daily basis. At least the plus is she LOVED them as well as her twin brother.

    What a cute idea.. I love the “gras”.. never thought about that…. thanks for sharing

  3. Cute idea Jackie. This is also a great idea for the kid’s to do for their class rooms for next Easter. I will have to remember this cupcake idea for next Easter. I’ll have to get extra jelly beans as I am sure it will be 3 for the cupcake and one into their mouths!

      We actually did these with Hanna’s class at the Easter party this week. It went really well. We used canned icing, took a knife and gave them a knife full of icing to ice their cupcakes and had the coconut on a plate for them to dip it in. Then we had them count out 3 jelly beans ~ so they got lots of good lessons from this activity. There were a few incidents with the jelly beans, but if you make it about counting them, most of the kids did really well. 🙂
