Easter Peep and Bunny Cupcakes



I was reading the Sunday Magazine of my Newspaper when I saw these adorable Easter Cupcakes.  So I knew I had to try to make a knockoff of them with the baking supplies I had on hand for Easter.  These are the cute little cupcakes that came about.  I made my own lemony buttercream frosting and that gave the cupcakes a real burst of flavor.   

Ingredients:
1 box yellow cake mix
Jelly beans
Peeps (chicks and bunnies)
My lemony buttercream frosting recipe (or store bought vanilla frosting)
Baker's coconut
Green food coloring

Directions:
Bake cupcakes as directed by the box of cake mix.  Cool cupcakes completely.  Dye baker's coconut with green food coloring to desired grass like color.

Frost cupcakes.  Dip frosted cupcake into dyed coconut.  Place a half of a toothpick into peep and poke other end of toothpick into cupcake. Finish off with jelly beans.  Enjoy.  Makes 14-16 cupcakes.

Lemony Buttercream Frosting:
2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
Cream butter, add sugar and lemon juice.  Blend until creamy.
