Grass Green Vanilla Frosting Directions, and decoration:
Cream the butter and powder sugar until it looks light and creamy.
If it doesn’t cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams.
Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by taking a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon it is ready if not then….
Add more powder sugar 1/2 C at a time…. mix well.
Remove 4 tablespoons of whiting frosting. Place in a bowl and set aside.
Spoon the white frosting into a piping bag with a medium sized tip.
Add several drops of the grass green gel food coloring. Mix well to incorporate the color thorough out the frosting.
If ready scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a large star tip
Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the star tip.
Start by frosting on the outside edge of the cupcake working to the center of the cupcake.
Place the white chocolate wafer on the frosted cupcake as displayed in the picture.
Place the bunny feet below the the white chocolate wafer.
Dollop a drop of white icing on the center of the chocolate wafer.
Place the malted Easter eggs, in a set of three together.
Aren’t they sweet? They would be lovely for an Easter party or family get together over the holidays.
