More Easter Cupcakes

Tomorrow is our semi annual Hanke Conference Breakfast. I had so much fun decorating Easter cupcakes earlier this week, that I decided to do some more. 

This was one of my favorites. I still need to work on my basket weave, but I love how they look like little baskets. 

I decided to do some more bird nests since they were so easy.

I also did some more chicks. I forgot to buy gummies for their beaks, but I had some orange Starburst candies. 

Some baskets. The thing I would do different on them, is to put the licorice in right before serving. I made these this afternoon, and now my licorice is droopy. I tried sticking a toothpick in one, but I almost crushed the cupcake, so I decided to just let them droop.

These Peeps cupcakes were also a little bit of work. I had a hard time getting the bunnies to stay upright. Maybe if I had chopped the bottom off a little bit so it was more flat instead of round. I did finally put a toothpick in one of them. 

I loved the carrot cupcakes! The carrots are made of green Twizzler and Starburst candies. Then I lightly sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar to look like dirt. 

I ended up with 24 cupcakes. I can't wait to take them to the brunch tomorrow and show them off.

Yummy, I wish I could see everyone's smile when they see the cupcakes that you have made. I like the carrot cupcakes, tell Josh to stay out of the garden.

Well, I want to know how in the heck you got the twizzlers to stay up, I got them in the cupcake, but they fell down immediatly...I already knew to put tooth picks in the bunnies though...but even those don't work on the twizzlers...hmmm

They stayed up...for about an hour! And I didn't take them to the party until the next morning. :( Next time I will try toothpicks and not put in the twizzlers until I serve them.
