The good 'ole nest cupcakes.
I only had one flake to go on top of 9 cupcakes. So as you can see the nests didn't really look like nests. The flake is supposed to be broken up to look like twigs but my family still thought they looked great! *mental note: buy 3-4 flakes next time* The eggs were the limited edition m&m speckled easter eggs (but you could just use peanut m&m's).
This little chick topped my daughters cupcake. I had visions of her biting into one of those speckled eggs and finding a peanut (she's allergic) so I thought i'd make something. I shaved some nut free chocolate with a potato peeler for the nest, a lot easier than flaking the flakes!
My daughter name the chick Rose. Rose was very easy to make: One ball for the body and a slightly smaller ball for the head. Two small orange balls flattened and then cut in on an angle formed the feet. A tiny orange ball turned into a cone and then cut at the tip formed the beak. I made two indents in the head and then stuck in two tiny blue balls for the eyes. I used a straw to mark the eyebrows.
For the wings I made two love hearts and used the back of a knife to mark them and Whoooaaa is that a ....... it can't be a ............... it is a .............a Bogan in the background! Okay, so he's not a bogan, but I think my No1 Brother really wanted to be on my blog, hahaha.
