Thanks so much to Joanne and Lesa who sent us this recipe!

The kids LOVE these and it is very easy for them to help decorate. I hope your kids enjoy them as much as mine do.

Easter Nest Cupcakes with Speckled Easter Eggs
 • 1 or 2 boxes Plain white cake mix
 • Ready made vanilla icing
 • 1 cup Shredded coconut
 • Green food coloring
 • Food coloring (pastel colors)
 • Easter muffin liners (optional)
 • Jelly beans or M&M speckled Easter
 • String licorice (optional)
 1.  Make up a batch (or two!!) of cupcakes;
     plain white cake mix is fine.
 2.  Take a tub of ready-made vanilla icing
     and divide into 4 or 5 parts. Leave one
     part white, and color the other icing
     potions in easter-like pastel colors
     (pink, yellow, peach, lavender, etc)
 3.  Ice the cup cakes with various colors.
 4.  Put about a cup of shredded coconut into a small bowl. Add a few drops of green food coloring until a
     nice spring grass-like green color is obtained for the coconut. Sprinkle in a little bit of icing sugar
     and a few drops of water. (This will give the coconut mixture a 'stickiness' to it so it will set well on
     top of the cupcakes, and hold the mini-eggs).
 5.  Drop a teaspoonful or so of grass mixture onto each cupcake. Top each 'grass nest' with 2-3 M&M speckled
     Easter eggs (available in most grocery shops in the lead-up to Easter) or jelly beans.
 6.  Last of all take some string licorce to make handle of basket (insert into cupcake to form handle) they
     are colorful, fun and the kids love them!
 7.  Place in fridge which will allow the eggs to sit firmly into the nests.
 8.  Arrange on a platter covered in Easter basket 'hay'.
