Yummy Easter Basket Cupcake

This cupcake is one that everyone can do! It's so simple and fun, even the kids can help.
Cupcake with foil covered chocolate eggs.


Supplies Needed:
Making Modeling Chocolate (White or Colors)
  • 1 lb. white chocolate wafers
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • powdered sugar
  1. Melt chocolate in microwave slowly or on top of double boiler, remember do not boil your water.
  2. Stir in corn syrup until well blended. Note: mixture will get very thick almost immediately.
  3. Cover mixture and let set at room temperature several hours.
  4. To use, dust surface with powdered sugar and knead small portions until softened. Modeling chocolate will be VERY HARD, the heat of your hands softens it. If needed, chocolate may be microwaved for 10-20 seconds.
  5. Use for sculpting, ribbons, baskets, flowers etc.
  6. Excess may be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap for storage.
*We have experimented with other recipes out there, and found some using white chocolate or colors tend to be too soft wile working with it. Other recipes you have to wait a couple of days to be able to use it and when you do, it gets too soft. We have adjusted this recipe so it works well and tastes good.

Making 3-D Chocolate Foil Eggs
  • Chocolate
  • Mold
  • Foil wrappers
  1. Melt chocolate in microwave slowly or on top of double boiler, remember do not boil your water.
  2. Pour melted chocolate into candy mold and tap on table to remove air bubbles and flatten back.
  3. Place in freezer for approx. 10 minutes.
  4. Remove eggs from mold and pour more melted chocolate into your mold, tap on table. Take an egg that is done and place on top of an egg that you just poured and press lightly so they stick together.
  5. Place mold in freezer.
  6. Tap out your 3-D eggs.
  7. Wrap in colored foils.
Completing your cupcake:
  1. Bake cupcakes. and let cool.
  2. With a spatula ice cupcakes with buttercream icing.
  3. Color angel flake coconut with green food color and sprinkle on top of icing.
  4. Place Foil eggs in cupcake.
  5. With the modeling chocolate roll out 2 tubes and twist together to form a rope. Measure approx. 6" long pieces and push into sides of cupcake to form handle.
  6. Use a little icing and attach bow.
