Last Easter, I used my grass tip for the first time when I made this Easter egg hunt cupcake, inspired by the adorable Easter cupcakes at tasteandtell.com and I was pleased with the results. I also tried spreading a buttercream on top and rolling it onto a plate of tinted coconut and the grass-tip piped cupcake won out because it looked more realistic that the coconut which tasted great but looked more like
AstroTurf synthetic grass to me.
See what I mean?
How to pipe buttercream grass
Use the grass tip, hold it above the cupcake and very close to the surface.
Squeeze, stop squeezing, pull up. Repeat in a circle all around the cupcake and wor your way to the center.
Watch this helpful video demonstration from Cookies, Cupcakes and Cardio and see how it’s done.
When you’re done piping, top your cupcakes with Cadbury mini eggs (you really can’t leave me alone with a bag of these).
What do you think? Do they need some cute Easter bunny cookies to complete the Easter theme?
