Easter Peep Cupcakes

These cute Easter cupcakes are some of the easiest cupcakes I've ever made. Anyone could do this, no matter your skill level.

I made these cupcakes last year for Easter, which is why I don't have great photos. Regardless, I had to share.

I used a yellow box cake, homemade Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, Peeps, Wilton #233 tip, Wilton Leaf Green color and toothpicks.

Bake your yellow cake according to the directions and let your cupcakes cool.

Make your vanilla buttercream frosting. I am completely sold on making all my frosting. It tastes soooo much better than store bought. But if you feel more comfortable with store bought icing, grab some vanilla frosting. I used store bought my whole life, up until 2 years ago. It's so much easier to decorate with homemade frosting since you have control over the consistency. This buttercream frosting recipe is easy too. So even someone like me is capable, who doesn't make everything from scratch like Martha.

I used Wilton's Leaf Green icing color to tint my frosting. 

Using Wilton's #233 tip I piped the green frosting onto the cupcakes. You can use a Wilton piping bag or disposable piping bags. Follow Wilton's easy tutorial on how to pipe grass frosting.

Once your grass frosting is done, take your toothpicks and insert them halfway into the bottom of your Peeps. Then insert other half of toothpick into your cupcakes. So easy and too cute. These were a big hit at church! Check out The Frugal Girls website where I originally saw this idea.
