Spring Basket Cupcake Recipe

Prep time  30 min
Total time  1 hr 30 min
Serves 24

What You Need

  • 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil, and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • 1 container Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting
  • Green-colored sour candy separated into strips
  • Jelly beans or other desired candies

How To Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans).
  2. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  3. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
  4. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  5. Frost with frosting.
  6. Use candy strips for handle on each.
  7. Decorate with candy as desired. Store loosely covered.


  • Make your fun Easter Basket Cupcakes even cuter! Pick up fun foil or fancifully decorated muffin cup liners at cake decorating or party supply stores.
  • To make basket handles the same size, use the handle from the first basket to measure the length for the rest.
  • If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
