As longterm readers of Rhyme & Ribbons know, I love holidays. I love decorating, I love the traditions, I love everything that goes along with them (besides the stress). So today’s post isn’t a recipe, it’s more like an edible DIY for Easter or any spring party.
Bird’s Nest Cake
*I originally was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest that wasn’t linked to any webpage. With a quick google search I can give inspiration credit, where credit is due to Vanilla Bean Baker
What you need:
2 Round Cakes cooled to room temperature (I used my vanilla cake
1 butter knife
circle for tracing (I used a mug)
1 bag of Cadbury Chocolate Mini Eggs
Cut out a circle in the center of one of your cooled cakes. Discard (eat) the inner circle. Frost the top of the other cake generously and then put the donut shaped cake neatly on top. Frost the entire cake with a layer of chocolate frosting. This is essentially your crumb cut so it’s not necessary that it look perfect. Then add your frosting to the piping bag and pipe individual “twigs” all over the cake. I piped mine without rhyme or reason because I think it looks better it isn’t neat. Then fill your nest up with eggs and you’re ready to go!
