Thanks so much for Arfi @ Homemades blog for hosting this cupcake round-up! This was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see all the entries!
I made these for a cupcake class that I taught last night and once I tried them I new they were a winner. I tried out a new coconut cake recipe from Epicurious.com and it turned out fantastic! And for the coconut cream cheese frosting I used the same recipe that I just tried out last week from Melissa Murphy’s Baking Book. This is definitely a knock out cupcake combo and I highly recommend that you try it! I made the birdie, little eggs, and worm from fondant and just played around with the shapes till I liked them. I originally just had the birdie, but then people in the class started experimenting and making little eggs and worms, so I did the same! I rolled the eggs and worm in Oreo cookie crumbs to give a dirt effect. And for the eyes I used edible food markers to color them on. Lastly, to make sure the birdie stayed up I stuck a toothpick up his cute little bum and secured him into the cupcake. Hope you enjoy these for your Easter holiday!
