Nest & Eggs Cupcake

I don’t consider myself to be all that great in the kitchen. I mean, I don’t think I’m BAD at cooking and baking. I just don’t get a ton of joy from it and honestly don’t know a whole lot about it. I basically follow recipes and keep it pretty basic. Which is why it’s odd that I have done a few food posts lately. What can I say? I do love me some cute desserts and these Nest & Egg Cupcakes are cute!
I wanted to make a dessert for our Easter party, but not just any dessert. I have seen some nest cupcakes floating around blogland and Pinterest. They were all really cute, so I decided to create my own version.
I made some vanilla cupcakes per the directions on the box (remember when I said I can only follow a recipe, ya). I piped on some vanilla frosting in the shape of a nest. I didn’t worry about getting the nest to look just perfect or for them all to look the same. After all, don’t all bird nests look different? I used some blue candy eggs for the….well, the eggs!
I love that they look like little robin eggs! Not only did they turn out adorable, but they were so very yummy too. I guess there is something to say for keeping things simple.
I know they are nothing ground breaking…..but I am always a little proud of myself when I get creative in the kitchen. Thanks for check out my sweet little Nest & Egg Cupcakes!!!
Linking up to these great link parties!
