Frosting:

  1. Add the butter into a bowl and mix to soften it. Add in the icing sugar a little at a time until all the icing sugar is mixed into the butter then add a little green food colouring
  2. Put the buttercream into a piping bag with the nozzle shown and pipe onto the cooled cupcakes so that the decoration looks like grass.
  3. Add on the mini eggs and you’re finished.
