  2. Easy Egg Nest Cupcakes

    No special piping tips needed—just frost with vanilla frosting and top with chocolate shavings to make a nest. Then place the candy eggs on top.

  3. Baby Robin Cupcakes

    Lightly frost the top of the cupcake with frosting; then cover with toasted coconut to make the Robin's nest. Then you can dab on colored frosting to make baby birds.

  4. Carrot Top Cupcakes

    Make a batch of spice cake or carrot cake cupcakes and ice with white frosting. Then pipe on a orange carrot and use fresh herbs, such as parsley or mint for the carrot top. 

  5. Springtime Blooming Cupcakes

    Simply snip mini marshmallows in half, toss with coarse sugar, and arrange on top of your cupcake.
