Easter Birds Nest Cupcakes

I saw these cute little cupcakes at The Southern Institue and knew straight away I would have to try making them for my daughter's preschool Easter concert.  Aren't they the cutest!!!

Here is how mine turned out ...
They were super easy to make.  I used a packet Lemon Cake mix and the supplied lemon icing.  

Then I toasted some shredded coconut, which I have never done before, and it tasted yummo!  I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but for this I'll make an exception.

Then I cut a Cadbury mini egg in half and placed it on top with a mini chicken I got from the Dollar shop.  I had to secure them with a dab of icing which worked perfectly.

So not only did they look cute, they tasted amazing!
And the kids at preschool loved them!

A big thank you to Jenn at Rook No. 17 for sharing the idea and recipe!
