DIY Spring Basket & Bird's Nest Cupcakes
Things you will need:
  • Your favorite cupcake recipe
  • Frosting
  • Candy eggs - jelly beans or chocolate, whatever you like best!
  • Candy birds - the marshmallow variety works great here!
  • Candy handles - choose your favorite rope candy, licorice, etc. - I used fruit strip & cut into strips.
  • Optional:  Green food coloring
  • Optional:  Coconut

  1. Bake cupcakes as directed and let cool.
  2. Frost cupcakes with your choice of frosting.
  3. Tint coconut green by adding a few drips of food coloring. I used a plastic bag to mix it.
  4. Add coconut for "grass" and add eggs on top.
