I started out with great intentions of a step by step "how to", but I got a little distracted. (oops) First, I started out with plain 'ole plastic easter eggs. *You have to use the ones that don't have little holes in them.*

Place the coated eggs face down on a cookie sheet and chill in the fridge for about 5 minutes. Now for the hard part....getting them OUT of the eggs without breaking. (This is probably where I became to
Once I got them out, I filled them with jelly beans and sealed them shut with some icing. I covered the mess of a seam with a fondant strip and decorated with leaves and flowers.
Up close, you can see what a mess they are. LOL But from far away, they made quite the impression.
The cupcakes were a new lemon recipe. (YUM) with raspberry filling and lemon buttercream (tinted green for the grass.) They were very cute, but time consuming. Much like my ValenSwines, there were just enough for the class!
