Easy Easter Basket Cupcakes is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have recently rediscovered my love of baking and creating. I tried these cupcakes for Easter and they were a HUGE hit. They were so easy, so adorable, and so yummy. They were the hit of the Easter party!!! I had never used the grass tip before, but it was pretty simple. I found that letting the frosting come out to create slightly longer grass makes the shape of the grass hold better. With very short grass it doesn't have the same effect. I started from one side and worked my way over to the other to make sure that the grass all lined up to give complete coverage. It was beautiful when it was does. I HIGH recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for Easter and myfamily and friends couldnt get enough of them. They were such a hit we even took some in to my sons teachers at school. I had to use another tip for the grass but it worked out well. We also used confetti frosting and wilton icing for thr decorating. Instead of the basket covers..I just used Easter paper and bought piping to use for the basket handles. We used jelly beans flavored like skittle for the "eggs" . I will be making these again. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids could really do this project! I did this for Easter and everyone loved them.....the grass just gets a little hard after a day...lol I got Jelly bellies for the eggs. Maybe next time I will used cream cheese frosting instead of buttercream to keep the grass from hardneing so fast. It was a very quick dessert and would do again. Good for student if they were to do this in school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these as a trial run for my family Easter get together and were a lot easier to make than i thought they would be. These cupcakes are very easy and simple to make and i cant wait to make more. I used robin eggs and the grass was a brezze to pipe. I also love the fact that you only have to use one color which i used kelly green. My family will love them. Thanks Wilton!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these cupcake ideas were great! So easy to make and overall time was not bad. After the cupcakes are baked and all decorationing ingredients collected decorating was fun. Loved the idea about using coconut as grass and jelly beans as eggs. Once the first ones are made ideas began to flow. Thank you Wilton for making our Easter party have a special surprise!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these this Easter and all the years past. they are one of my family's favorite. They always look forward to any holiday because its simply a surprise most of the time. I wuld have to say the hardest part is mixing the buttercream to be that really rick dark green but other than that easy. quick tip: i usually just add m&m or jelly beans for the "eggs"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These turned out adorable for Easter. Everyone loved them so much they didn't want to eat them! It was very easy to do, but took me a little while since I had never done this before. I used jelly beans instead of peanut M&Ms on top. It would also be cute for a sports theme, with a football or soccer ball on top. I would definitely recommend!
