Easter Bird Nest Cupcakes
Just in time for Easter! A super simple (and very cute!) way to decorate cupcakes! All you need are a batch of standard size cupcakes, a small grass piping tip, some gel food coloring, frosting, and Cadbury mini eggs! If you are skilled at piping, you can decorate each cupcake in seconds! I hope you enjoy! :)
To begin this tutorial, color half of a batch of frosting with Wilton's leaf green gel food coloring. Fit a piping bag with a small grass piping tip (I'm using Wilton's 233 piping tip), and pipe green frosting around the edge of the cupcake.
Be sure to go all the way around. This will be the grass under our nest! :)
Next, color the other half of the frosting brown using either gel food coloring or unsweetened cocoa powder. Fit piping bag with a small grass tip and fill piping bag with the brown frosting. To form the bottom of the nest, begin piping from the center of the cupcake and swirl around to the edge of the grass... just like if you were piping a rosette.
Now it's time to build the wall of the nest! Pipe a second layer of brown frosting around the edge of the bottom of the nest. Add a third layer, if needed.
To complete the cupcake nests, place a Cadbury Mini Egg in each nest.
Awww! Aren't they cute?! A perfect dessert to serve at Easter dinner! I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! God bless!!
