Easter Bird Nest Cupcakes Recipe and How-To

Easter is just around the corner and I am already kicking my baking into high gear! Every year we host a Easter party here at our home for the kids with a big old-fashion egg hunt. This year, I will be serving these adorable Easter Bird Nest Cupcakes to all of the kids who will be attending the Egg Hunt and Party.

Easter Bird Nest Cupcakes Recipe

1 box White Cake Mix
1 tub Cream Cheese Frosting
1 cup Shredded Coconut Flakes
Green Food Coloring
1 bag HERSHEY'S Mini Robin Eggs
16-18 Cupcake Liners

Prepare the cake mix according to package directions. Only fill them 3/4 of the way full as you don't want them with high tops on them when they are done baking. Let cupcakes cool. Add 2-3 drops of green food coloring to the cream cheese frosting, stirring until the color is well-blended. Spread frosting on top of the cupcakes. Add 2-3 drops of green food coloring to the shredded coconut flakes and then sprinkle them on top of each cupcake. You can add a lot of coconut or a little, entirely up to you. Place 3-4 HERSHEY'S Mini Robin Eggs on top of each one. Store them in an airtight container until serving time.
