Celebrate Easter with cupcakes!! I love how easy these cupcakes are to make. The first one is made with green frosting using a fork to make the grass. I found the mini ice cream cones at my local Target store, but you can get at Amazon link below. I have also seen these mini cones at Souplantation. I just asked the manager if I could pay for 2 dozen and he said, “You can have them!” (Score!!) The second cupcake I used colored twists and toothpicts to hold them in the cupcake. Then you just need some jelly beans! So easy and so cuter.
