Robin's nest egg cupcakes for Easter. I was inspired to make these cupcakes after spying robin egg Whoppers at the store. Dyed coconut flakes green for the grass. German chocolate cupcakes since I figured the coconut in the frosting was already a present flavor. That's it!
Although, I did vary it a bit by adding Target Market Pantry brand Chickadees crackers to create love bird cupcakes.
So simple. As if you really need a recipe.
Robin's Egg Nest Easter Cupcakes
Cupcakes and frosting of whatever kind you wish. I went with boxed German chocolate cake and coconut pecan frosting.
Whopper Robin Eggs
Dyed Coconut Flakes
Optional: Target Market Pantry brand Chickadees crackers
One box of cake mix gave me 18 cupcakes. Coconut pecan frosting.
I used the mini sized robin egg Whoppers. I found it easier to put the robin eggs on the frosting first, which helped hold them in place. Placed the cupcake in a bowl and sprinkled the dyed green coconut flakes all around. That way, I could reuse the extra coconut flakes on other cupcakes.
Don't they look like little bird's nests?
The little chickadees were pretty cute too.
