Easy Easter Basket Cupcakes Recipe & Easter Blog Hop!

There are so many awesome Easter Basket Cupcake Recipes out there on the World Wide Web. This is the recipe that my daughter and I do every year. You can use anything for the basket handle. We love the Spring Twizzlers. You can use regular Twizzlers, Cowtails, Pretzels, or pretty much anything that you can bend or that ha a curve in it. And I know that most people do not like to use food coloring, so you can use any icing without food coloring or make your own icing. 


1 box of white cake mix
1 can of white frosting
2 drops of green food coloring
1/2 cup of coconut flakes
1 bag of Spring Twizzlers
1 bag of jelly beans


1.  Make the cupcakes per the instructions on the cake mix box.  To be more festive, I like to use the pastel silicone cupcake mold or Easter cupcake wrappers.

2.  Use 2 or 3 drops of green food coloring and add it to your entire can of icing. Then also add the 1/2 cup of coconut to the icing as well. This will give your icing more of a 'grass' texture. Mix it all together. 

3.  Ice your cupcakes. Then add a few jellybeans to the top of each one. And also add your Twizzler basket handle. And voila! Easy Easter Basket Cupcakes!! Enjoy!

Stroke Of Love by Melissa Foster Book Tour & Giveaway!

18994460NEWLY RELEASED........

Book #2 The Remingtons, Love in Bloom Series #11

Kate Parello runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid, where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program as a means to repair their marred reputations. She loves the country, the people, and what AIA stands for, but too many diva volunteers have turned her off to press-seeking celebrities altogether and left her questioning the value of the volunteer program. When she meets incredibly handsome and charming Sage, he stirs emotions she hasn’t felt for ages, even though he represents the things she despises.

Laid-back artist Sage Remington escapes his wealthy lifestyle in the Big Apple for a two-week journey of self-discovery to figure out how a guy who has so much can feel so empty. When he meets ultra-organized Kate, who lives her life the way he's always dreamed of living his, the attraction is too hot to ignore, but Sage is there to figure out what’s missing in his life, not to find a woman.

Every look, and every late-night chat in the romantic jungle brings them closer together, but Sage can barely think past stripping away Kate’s misconceptions about him. Kate fights him every step of the way—even though she finds it hard to ignore the strikingly handsome, generous-to-a-fault artist who wants to do nothing more than right the wrongs of the world—and love her to the ends of the earth.

STROKE OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series.
