These Robin’s Nest Cupcakes are made with moist, rich chocolate cupcakes, topped with a fluffy chocolate frosting, brown jimmies and chocolate robins’ eggs. These Robin’s Nest Cupcakes are an easy, festive spring and Easter treat!
I’m so excited to share the adorable and easy, springy, Easter cupcakes with you. It’s been in the 50’s this entire week, so even though February just ended, it feels like spring around my neck of the woods. So while St. Patrick’s Day isn’t even here yet, I couldn’t help making a spring/Easter inspired treat. And I decided on these simple and adorable Robin’s Nest Cupcakes.
The eggs on these cupcakes are Cadbury Mini-Eggs, and they were the inspiration for these Robins’ Nest Cupcakes. The candies are a pretty pastel color with little splatters of contrasting color – just like real robins’ eggs!
Aside from the eggs, I needed to make sure the nest portion of the cupcakes looked as much like birds’ nests as possible while still being easy to make. I decided to simply use an easy, fluffy chocolate frosting. I piped the frosting out in a spiral, building up the sides of the cupcake to make a nest. I used a 1M tip to pipe the frosting
It looked pretty amazing on its own! But adding the brown jimmies gave the nests a “twiggy” feel. I thought the jimmies did the trick perfectly, while adding a little more texture to the Robins’ Nest Cupcakes.
I’m so pleased with how these Easter Cupcakes turned out. The cupcake itself is made with the easiest, most moist, chocolaty cupcake recipe that doesn’t even require a mixer! And the frosting comes together in a snap. They are a delicious, easy, and festive treat for spring and Easter!
Thanks these birds nest’s cup cakes look amazing bravo! I shall try them soon.
These are so cute!! Such a great idea :).
Adorable and festive cupcakes!!! Just in time for Easter…
These are adorable. I might try them for easter. What do you think about using a raspberry frosting instead of or possibly swirled with the chocolate?
These cupcakes are so pretty and festive! I love this idea..perfect for any Easter party. xo, Catherine
these are just SO darn cute! and perfect as an Easter centerpiece
SO cute! I love that you used coconut oil in these. It adds such a nuance of flavor especially with chocolate! And who doesn’t like those candy covered eggs? I’m an addict!
These are SO adorable! Pinning for when my niece and nephews come to visit…my daughter always bakes with them and they will love these!
