Spring Easter Basket Cupcakes

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 1/2 teaspoons water
12 - 81/2-inch long orange or red licorice twists
8 ounces Jelly Belly jelly beans in pastel colors.

Frost cupcakes generously with white icing, being careful to spread out to the edge of each cupcake. Bend one twist and insert ends into cupcakes making a basket handle.

Combine water and green food coloring. Combine coconut and toss until the coconut is bright green. Add more of the water/food coloring mixture to achieve desired color.

To decorate cupcakes, place about 10 beans all of the same flavor standing up as a border. Sprinkle green coconut on top of cupcakes. Place five Jelly Belly beans in the center, using colors different than the border color.
