Easter Ideas III: Nesting Baby-Bluebird Cupcakes

Pin It Now! Martha Stewart Recipe Easter Cake

I about squealed when I saw these birdies! Aren't they precious? What a perfect topper for Easter cupcakes!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut (about 5 ounces)
  • Vanilla Cupcakes
  • Chocolate Buttercream
  • Yellow and light-blue food coloring
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut on a rimmed baking sheet; bake until light brown, 8 to 10 minutes, rotating pan once. Set aside to cool.
  2. Lightly frost cupcakes with 1 cup chocolate buttercream; set aside. Tint 2 tablespoons reserved buttercream pale yellow; place in a pastry bag fitted with a #349 Ateco leaf tip; set aside. Tint remaining buttercream light blue; place in a pastry bag fitted with a #11 Ateco plain round tip, and pipe three bluebird heads, 3/4 inch in diameter, onto each cupcake. Using leaf tip, pipe yellow beaks. With a toothpick, add melted-chocolate eyes. Form each nest with 2 tablespoons toasted coconut.
