This post is gonna be short, cute, and sweet. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cute little robins nests. How stinkin cute? Right? You and your kids will really enjoy making them to sit on top of your spring cupcakes, cakes, or just your dessert plates. They add a nice spring touch and show your guests that you went that extra mile to present them something a little special. As I have said before, I love Easter candy. These nests use the mini Whopper eggs, but by all means, use whatever cute little egg candies your heart desires 🙂

FYI, if you are a coconut lover, you should probably make a double batch because I ate 4 of these bad boys just while taking the photos…no lie. And since I am being honest, if you really want to enjoy your sweet toasted coconut, how about adding a small scoop of ice cream into the center and taking a nice, big bite. Mmm.

Let’s start baking…
