Dinosaurs in the Grass Cupcakes
Ingredients:
Baked cupcakes
White icing
Zip-top plastic bag
Shredded coconut
Green food coloring
Small plastic dinosaur (washed)

Helpful Tip: For a sandy look, use crushed graham crackers or molasses cookies instead of tinted coconut. Small rocks can be made out of chopped nuts.

Directions:
Frost the cupcake. To make the "grass," place a handful of shredded coconut in the zip-top bag, add a few drops of food coloring, seal the bag and shake it. Cover the frosting with grass and top with a dinosaur. less
