Basket Inspectors Cupcakes
Look who?s popping up at everyone?s place for Easter! It?s a cute bunny basket inspector on a cupcake that?s fresh as spring. The basket has a pretty handle made from dots of piped candy, and it?s filled with pull-out icing grass and pastel jelly beans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cfox2009 from For the most part these cupcakes were very easy. This was only the second cupcake project I have ever done. It was fun and easy using the grass technique. The only part that was a little hard was the handle. At first I made the beads too small and they fell apart when I took them off of the wax paper. The second time I made the beads a little bigger and then just traced them with a solid line across the back to make sure they stayed together which was not noticable from the front. I did change it a little using a Wilton Bunny pick instead of the candy and little candy coated egg shaped chocolates instead of the Jelly beans. Everyone loved these cupcakes and I received many compliments on them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mdwilson1117 from I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the "Basket Inspectors Cupcakes" I did replace the "candy" bunny with marshmallow peeps and made the "basket handle" out of Twizzlers. Talk about a HUGE hit! They are now a requirement for every Easter. The husband took a batch to work and I have a standing order already with them for a "few dozen" for next Easter. =) Yummmm...

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrs.owl from loved the idea, it was great for a large Scout event. I used sour punch straws for the handle. I had so much fun making the grass and hiding the jellybean eggs. I did make a full size cake. I put grass on the sides of the cake instead of a basket look. I used the large chocolate eggs to hid in the grass. It was easy and fun to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trindadsth from These cupcakes were a hit for Easter. I didn't use the candy bunnies though. I used a Wilton chocolate mold and molded chocolate bunnies. Worked great. I did find that the handles wouldn't stay on the cupcakes and they broke easily, but other than that these were great and everyone loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RaquelR from I made this the night before my son's Spring Celebration at school. It was super easy and the pre-k class LOVED it!! I made these on two occasions, one with the melted candy meltmethod used here and the second time, I just used twizzlers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WendiH from I made these for Easter. I had used peeps for my bunnies instead. I also filled my cupcakes with a strawberry filling inside. They were really cute and tasty!
