To Make Easter Baskets:

To tinted the coconut green, place coconut in a zipper bag and add a drop or two of green food coloring, seal and shake until tinted to resemble grass.

Frost each cupcake with vanilla frosting. Immediately make "nest" on top of each cupcake. Sprinkle each cupcake with tinted coconut. Arrange candies on top of each for the baskets contents. For the baskets handles, insert a wooden pick into each end of a strawberry twist and press each pick down inside each cupcake to form a handle.

My husband makes these every year for the kids, as his mother did before him. The only thing he does different is he chooses to use pipe cleaners for the handles. They are so cute & make a nice display when there is a dozen on a dish.
