Nesting

The chocolate heart was eaten up last night, so I decided it was time to fill up the cake plate again.
We decided on something springy.

Just take your favorite cupcake recipe, and your favorite frosting recipe, and top with toasted coconut and a few of those mini cadbury eggs, and you have some bird's nest cupcakes.





While we were making these, I had to reassure Addison, more than once, that nothing was going to hatch out of these. I had to give in and let him and Anna try one, just to prove it was a chocolate egg, not a real egg. I did join them, and I must say, it sure beat trying to hide in the pantry and throw a handful in my mouth!
