Ingredients

  • 12 unfrosted Moist Deluxe Devil’s Food Cake Mix cupcakes baked in white paper liners
  • 12 honey graham crackers
  • 2 cans (16 ounces) Creamy Home-Style Classic Vanilla Frosting
  • Green, yellow, orange, blue, purple, and pink food coloring
  • 2 tablespoons each mini and regular white, pink, green, and blue decorations

Baking Instructions

  1. Tint 2 cups of the frosting light green. Spoon 1 1/2 cups of the light green frosting into a zippered plastic bag. Tint 1/2 cup each of vanilla frosting pink, light blue, light purple, orange, and yellow. Spoon 2 tablespoons each into zippered plastic bags. Press out the excess air in each of the bags, seal, and set aside.
  2. Using a serrated knife, trim the graham crackers into an egg shape 3 1/2 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. Snip a small corner (1/4 inch) from the bag with the 1 1/2 cups of green frosting and pipe a small dollop on top of each cupcake and place a graham cracker on top, pressing down to secure. The cracker will hang over the edge of the cupcake. Freeze the cupcakes for 10 to 15 minutes to set.
  3. Place the remaining 1/2 cup of each tinted frosting into a separate microwavable bowl. Working with one color at a time, microwave the frosting, stirring frequently, until it is the texture of lightly whipped cream, 20 to 30 seconds. Holding a chilled cupcake by the paper liner dip the graham cracker into the melted frosting to coat, turn right side up and let stand. Continue with all of the cupcakes and graham crackers making two eggs of each color.
  4. Snip very small corners (1/8 inch) from the bags with the 2 tablespoons of frosting. Pipe decorative dots, lines, and dashes on top of the frosting-coated crackers. Using the bag with the 1 1/2 cups of light green frosting, pipe dots of frosting around base of each egg always pulling the peak away from the egg (be sure to cover any exposed cupcake).
  5. While the frosting is still wet add candy decors to create decorative patterns.

Tips

Elegant Chocolate Curls

Elegant Chocolate Curls

Here's a simple and easy way to design a Duncan Hines dessert with chocolate. Take a block of room-temperature chocolate -- feel free to briefly microwave it. Take a vegetable peeler and glide it across the block of chocolate towards you to form curls. You can also start on the corners and edges for chocolate shavings. When you're finished, simply add them to your dessert for an elegant touch.


Fool proof tip for high rising cakes

Fool proof tip for high rising cakes

When making my cakes with Duncan Hines cake mixes I always use 2 to 3 heaping teaspoons of all-purpose flour to the mix . It never fails for me. The cake comes out so high and the cake is very moist and delicious. (:
