These Easter egg topped cupcakes are the perfect addition to your Easter parties and potlucks, and they are so quick and easy to whip up.

Today we had a fabulous Easter party with some wonderful friends.   We each took filled eggs for an Easter Egg hunt and a potluck dish.

My contribution to the potluck was cupcakes.

Inspired by the prospect of an Easter egg hunt and with a little help from Betty Crocker … thanks Betty, you're a peach, I whipped up a quick packet of carrot cake, added some cream cheese icing, and then topped it with edible grass and an Easter egg.

What you need:

  • Carrot cake mix
  • Cream cheese icing
  • Edible grass
  • Easter egg

For everyone who has asked about the edible easter grass, I found it at Cost Plus World Market and Pier 1 imports. I’ve seen it in blue, pink and green. I know you can also order it on-line but not sure if you’ll be able to get it shipped before the weekend.
