Color your frosting using your desired green gel food coloring. Mix until the color is evenly distributed throughout the buttercream frosting.
Decorate Your Cupcakes
Fit a Wilton piping tip #233 into your piping bag. If you do not have a piping bag, a piping tip, or either of these see notes in the post above for alternative ways to make your 'grass' for these cupcakes.
Test your frosting on a piece of parchment paper (or something disposable) to see how the frosting consistency works with your fitted piping tip. Pipe the green frosting by holding just above the surface at a 90 degree angle, or straight up over the surface.
Begin squeezing the piping bag and release pressure once you have your desired grass length. Pull straight up and away once pressure is released. Continue to do this over the surface of your cupcakes. Use angled motions when pulling away from the cupcake to give a more natural look to your 'grass'.
Add three Cadbury shimmer mini milk chocolate eggs to finish each Easter basket cupcake.
