EASTER CUPCAKES (cupcakes - Paste)

For these lovely Easter Cupcakes you will need:
1 box vanilla cake mix,
3 eggs,
1/3 cup vegetable oil,
1/2 cup water,
Follow instructions from the box cake mix;
Bake 12 cupcakes;
For decorations you will need:
1-1/2 cups butter cream frosting
3 cups coconut flakes
3 drops each red, yellow, green and blue liquid food coloring,
assorted jelly beans;
To color the coconut flakes: place 1/2 cup coconut flakes into a sandwich plastic bag and drop 3 drops of liquid food coloring. Seal the bag and keep pressing and turning until all flakes are evenly coated. Use different bags for other colors.
Spread the butter cream on top of each cupcake, sprinkle and gently press colored coconut flakes and finish decorating with jelly beans. This was my idea of decorating, but with a little more imaginations you can find different ways to decorate even better! Hope you like my Easter Cupcakes !
