Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350

Blend Funfetti cake mix with ingredients. Pillsbury calls for vegetable oil, water and eggs

Place cupcake cups in cupcake pan and fill each cup 2/3 full. The funfetti mix will make 24 cupcakes

Put icing in a bowl and add food coloring gels. Blend until it’s all green

Add icing to piping bag and place in fridge until cupcakes are baked and completely cool

Pull cupcakes out of the oven and immediately pull them out of the pan and set on the counter to cool

You can go to Wilton’s website to learn how to property make the grass or just practice on a plate. You can use a small tip or large 225. Images above. The large one helps the grass stand up straighter.

Stick a toothpick through the center-bottom of each PEEP and place in the center of each cupcake

Add 3 candy eggs, different colors to the cupcake

Refrigerate until ready to enjoy
