Easter is so much more than just Easter baskets and Easter bunnies. As a Christian, this is the day of celebration of the resurrection of Christ. I love making cupcakes for my grandsons. They love helping and these are their favorite. These are super easy to make and I can’t wait to make them again this year
I love these cupcake liners, they are so cute and work great!

For the decoration, I mixed coconut with green dye and used that for my “grass”. I then added mini whopper eggs and blue peeps.
