Assembly Ideas:

I use around 1 cup of canned frosting to 1 drop of green food coloring mix evenly.

Frost the tops of cookies and cupcakes or a 9-inch round cake, with green frosting. Pile on the tinted coconut. Place two or three jelly beans on top. Stand up 1 peep on the cupcakes or cookies on the back of the cupcake cookies setting into the frosting.

Note: For the 13 x 9 sheet cake, you will need a small bundt cake for the basket to place in the middle of the cake.

Foil wrapped in ribbon for the handle. Filled plastic eggs. Canned frosting or whipped cream. Tinted coconut and mini malted Easter eggs. The basket weave is made with a Wilton tip and frosting. Use any kind of candy sprinkles on top.

You can also dip half the peeps into the chocolate and then use a lollipop stick to insert and make sucker peeps
