It started with the edible grass I found at Powell’s candy store. Then another siting at Neiman Marcus of all places. What was I doing at Needless Markup? Just looking sorry to say, but I did get a great idea for these Easter cupcakes using the edible grass. You can find the grass and eggs at Powell’s Candy Store in the bay area and also Dylan’s candy store or Candy.com. I’m sure there are other places as well. You can make about 8 to 12 cupcakes per bag of grass. I used a large amount for the photo but certainly you could use half that. The grass is colored wafer paper that looks like it has been through a paper shredder. If you can find sheets of wafer paper I suspect you could cut your own!
I happen to love sugar eggs and have even made them from scratch with my kids. It’s not that hard only takes time but I just so happened to find these mini eggs already done up so I couldn’t resist.
Look at the adorable tiny pink bunny inside peeking out!
Here’s the grass piled up.
Take a small piece and twirl it around in a circle and place on top of the cupcake.
Place the sugar egg on top to finish! The hardest part is making the cupcakes
Is it me or is this the cutest thing ever?
UPDATE: I’m told Target and Walmart have the edible grass. And here is a link to the sugar eggs on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Assortment-Small-Panoramic-Sugar-Easter/dp/B0072JIT1O/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1331570017&sr=8-12.
Also an edible grass siting at CVS and Rite-Aid.
