    These were fun to make with the kids. We decorated the cupcakes to look like "baskets" using licorice sticks for handles, green coconut for grass, and mini peanut butter eggs!  -  09 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I tried this recipe because I wanted to make cupcakes for my fiance's family and my own...but my mom wanted carrot cake and I thought the design was really cute. Instead of making regular vanilla cupcake I got a recipe for carrot cake so I just made carrot cake cupcakes and made some cream cheese glaze & dyed coconut shavings green & got sweet tart jelly beans and fruity twizzlers. They came out so cuuute and so yummy!! Everyone loved them!  -  12 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
