Hi everyone! I hope you all had a a HOP-y Easter! (thumbs up for cheesy jokes!) Ever since I’ve seen this video, which teaches you how to bake a rainbow inside a cupcake, (WHAAAAT!?!) I’ve been waiting for the perfect excuse to make them. So when Easter came around…
The only thing I did differently was use homemade cake filling for the outside. I’m not the biggest fan of store bought cake mix :^P.
It was way past bedtime when I finished making these, so I set these out on a rack to cool and put the decorating off for the morning.
In the morning, I made the frosting. Here’s what you’ll need.
- 4 to 6 teaspoons of milk.
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
- A stick of butter (at room temperature)
- 16 ounces (a box) of confectioner’s sugar.
- An electric mixer.
- Some coconut (I forgot to add the coconut and bird’s eggs in the photo).
- A couple of bird’s eggs (not real ones!).
1. Mix your butter before adding your other ingredients. Add in your confectioner’s sugar a spoonful at a time (You don’t want to have it snowing indoors).
2. Add your green food dye.
3. Toast some of your coconut until it’s a nice brownish color (be sure to mix it very often, or it’ll BURN!). Let it cool completely before use.
4. Frost your cupcakes.
5. Now start “patting” the frosting with your butter knife.
6. Make a little nest out of your coconut, but not too much. You’ll can add more later.
7. Dab a little of your leftover frosting onto the bottom of your egg, then plant it into the middle of your cupcake.
4. Repeat with the other two eggs, then add more coconut to cover up any spaces you want.
After I finished, we cleaned up the house, and had a little Easter party with some friends. This was all that was left of my cake/cupcakes.
They were really yummy, and I hope you’ll get the chance to make some! My favorite part is the little surprise on the inside :^) Have fun!
Springtime! The perfect time to start a garden. Compost is essential, and making your own is better then buying store bought. We already have a compost bin in our backyard, but here’s a video for how to make your own! (Click here)
