Bird Nest Cupcakes


Today Cole and Buddy are having a Spring party at preschool.  They can’t call it an Easter party.  Don’t get me started.

So I volunteered to bring the cupcakes.  For the record, I let the sign up sheet stay out for 2 days before I signed up.  I want to make sure to give other people a chance to sign up.  But let’s face it, I love to do it.

This is an oldie, but with so many fancy new ways this one might have been forgotten.

I frosted mini cupcakes with a thin layer of store bought chocolate frosting.  I took a frosting tip (it says #5 on it) and made a circle around the top.  I made another layer inside the outer layer.  Does that make sense?

Then I put some jelly beans in the middle.  It is supposed to look like a bird nest.  You can use mini robin eggs, egg-shaped bubble gum, or whatever you can find that looks like eggs. 


Are you making a fun treat for Easter weekend?


  1. I'm hungry and should not have looked at these. They are so cute and look delicious!

  2. Looks delicious and I bet my kids would love it. I was looking for inspiration and I may just be making similar cupcakes. Great idea!

  3. Oh I like these a lot. We are going to have to make some tomorrow. I was needing a fun treat to make the kids.

  4. Looks better than my bird nest! I made Peeps cupcakes. I tried to pipe the nest, well, anyway, I think the kids will know what it is. And just placed the Peeps bird on top.

  5. We're going to make resurrection crescents--a favorite tradition at our house!

    Happy Easter!
