Spring Bird Nest Cupcakes

How to make Spring Bird Nest Cupcakes!
Perfect way to use the candy your little ones accumulated in their Easter Baskets, make these for a picnic, sports day, Spring birthdays, and for Mother's Day. Birds nest go with so many Spring themes and these cupcakes are a great idea for any event. 

Beautiful and easy Spring DIY party idea that you can make and use your extra egg cartons to re-purpose as decor, and also to carry them:) I love when decor can serve a functional purpose. For these Bird Nest Cupcakes I use the mini-sized cupcake paper, then a Tablespoon of cake batter when baking them. That way the cupcakes fit perfectly in the egg carton!
I also baked up some standard size cupcakes for these traditional treats.

Use whatever color you desire for cake and for the frosting and then decorate with chocolate shavings and malted mini chocolate eggs to make the adorable bird nest design:)

While they are baking, put chocolate in freezer for a few minutes then grate 1/2 cup chocolate shavings. 

Step 3:
If using a canned frosting simple 'whip' it up and get air into it then place into a plastic piping bag {ziplock bag}...snip hole in it...

Tip: Place cupcakes into carton prior to decorating for best results.
