1

Optional! Free free to use a premade frosting instead. Otherwise:

2

In the bowl of stand mixer, combine the butter and salt

3

Beat the butter for 3 minutes, until very creamy

4

Add ½ of the powdered sugar and mix on low speed until combined

5

Add the remaining powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until combined.

6

Turn the mixer speed up to medium-high, and blend until the frosting is very light and fluffy – about 5 minutes.

Directions - Coconut Grass
7

Place the shredded coconut in a zip-top plastic bag

8

Add a very small drop of green food coloring to the bag. A little color goes a long way! You can always add more later if needed

9

Seal the bag and start shaking

10

Shake the bag, massaging the coconut around with your hands, until the green color is distributed and the coconut is green

11

If you’d like a deeper green color, add more food coloring and repeat step 4

12

Place the dyed coconut in a shallow bowl

Cupcake Assembly
13

Frost each cupcake with frosting

14

Stick 2 candy eggs in the center of each cupcake

15

Roll the edges of each cupcake in the dyed coconut so that “grass” sticks to the outside edge of the frosted cupcake

16

Cut Red Vines Twists and Candy Straws in half. Using the halves, bend into arc shapes.

17

Stick the arcs into the frosting on top of the cupcakes to create your handles
