Bird’s Nest Cupcakes

Spring is here, the flowers are blooming, Easter is just around the corner. It’s time for a little cupcake celebration. In honour of Easter I made these mini cupcakes for my son’s kindergarten class.

The baking part isn’t really my forte, so I typically opt for boxed cake mixes. The decorating however is what I really like. Cake/cupcake decorating is like a relaxation exercise for me, I zone out and get lost in the repetition.

Using a Wilton 233 tip and green frosting I made the grass. With a Wilton #5 round and chocolate frosting I made the nest. I did a batch with jelly beans, and a batch with mini eggs.

My taste testers don’t exactly have discerning palates. Anything with copious amounts of sugar typically passes their inspection. I was asked why I didn’t make them bigger by my 6-year-old, and my two-year old asked for more while making a shoveling motion towards his mouth. So it appears that they are a hit.
