Favorite Ingredients Friday (Easter Edition)

I know I'm cutting it a bit close, but I hope you'll still join me tomorrow for

Good Friday to you all!  Sorry to get this post published so late in the morning.  The kids and I had to go Starbucks for "coffee"!

Today I'm hosting a my Easter Edition of Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! Please share recipes of dishes/beverages that you might serve at a Easter Sunday meal. Or, share a special Easter treat that you might make for your children!

Today I'd like to share my tips on how to make these cute Easter cupcakes.

Directions: I use a Pillsbury or Duncan Hines cake mix and the Wilton butter cream frosting recipe. I tint the frosting green and then frost the cupcakes using a Wilton cake decorating tip #233.  Put the frosting into a pastry bag with the #233 tip at the end of the bag.

The Wilton cake decorating tip #233 allows you to make frosting come out looking like grass, which is perfect for these cupcakes!  If you don't have one of these tips, go to Michael's Craft store.  Or, you can order it online.

After you frost the cupcakes, take Whopper easter eggs or pastel colored peanut M&Ms and place 3 of them in the grass frosting.

Viola!  You have Easter cupcakes that the kids (and adults) will love!
Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Easter Edition recipe! 
Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for everyone to go back and search for recipes.

You are so sweet to come over to my place to remind me! I don't expect I will have a weekly offering, but every time I work-up a recipe page, you can be sure I will add it over here! Now I'm off to see if I can make that Angel Pie tomorrow!

Thanks, Barbara
