Sweet Spring Eats: Easter Basket & Bird Nest Cupcakes

By Jamie Goodwin March 16, 2024
Welcome the birds back and the Easter holiday with these easy to decorate cupcakes.

Things you will need:
  • Your favorite cupcake recipe
  • Frosting
  • Candy eggs - jelly beans or chocolate, whatever you like best!
  • Candy birds - the marshmallow variety works great here!
  • Candy handles - choose your favorite rope candy, licorice, etc. (I used fruit strip & cut into strips.)
  • Green food coloring (optional)
  • Coconut (optional)

1. Bake cupcakes as directed and let cool.
2. Frost cupcakes with your choice of frosting.
3. Tint coconut green by adding a few drips of food coloring. I used a plastic bag to mix it.
4. Add coconut for "grass" and add eggs on top.
5. Put candy handle on basket or add bird to nest
