Easter Basket Cupcakes

Celebrate Easter with cupcakes.

Flavor: Chocolate cake with piped vanilla frosting, sprinkled coconut and artistically placed Whopper Eggs. Melted white chocolate for the handles.

Notes: Pipe the melted white chocolate onto wax paper until it hardens. Make quite a few extra as they can break easily. Set them into the frosting quickly after piping. 

Other alternatives to center of cupcake can include egg shape M&M's and food-colored coconut flakes.

Angry Birds Star Wars Birthday Party

I wanted something simple but that reflected the cartoon nature of Angry Birds. I LOVE how these turned out. One cake mix is all it took. Chewbacca's belt is the nougat from a Three Musketeers bar that I cut up. Outlining their eyes in black really made their features pop!

Party Favors
Create pool noodle light sabers! THESE THINGS ARE THE BEST! We have had ours now for almost two years, and they are one of the most popular toys whenever friends come to visit. Kids can smack as hard as they can and they don't hurt. Buy Monster Funnoodle Pool Noodle Foam Asstd Colors from Amazon. Cut them in half, and then use duct and electric tape for your handle design.

Party Games
Red Light, Green Light modified to Angry Birds Star Wars RED BIRD/GREEN PIG (I let my son color them).
