Easter basket cake decorations

How clever are these Easter basket cake decorations? They’re much easier to make than you may think using only a handful of chocolate or brown fondant to make the baskets.

Fill with your favourite Easter-themed treats and pop on top of a large cake or serve as it is.

This recipe covers one cupcake but you can cover more or less by adjusting the qualities. If making a large cake you can use small balls of cake or Rice Krispie squares to make smaller baskets.


For this Easter recipe you will need:

  • 1 cupcake
  • 1tbsp buttercream
  • 80g chocolate or brown fondant
  • Various eggs, flowers etc. to decorate
