spring cupcakes @our happy place are mostly monochromatic

First, I must apologize to you if you don’t like little birds nests, because if you visit this spring you’ll be seeing them here. A lot. I love this special sign of spring and I don’t mind seeing it in my wardrobe, jewelry box, and on my table. Today’s are monochromatic in pink and white. The little man of the house helped me make them up for our after dinner treat and only stuck his finger in one.

Frosting is homemade powdered sugar & I recommend Cadbury eggs because they are ridiculously delicious and a matte pastel.  A few of mine had fine cracks in them which I thought only added to the realistic nest. Happy birdnesting, cupcaking, and springing.

“The robin flew from his swinging spray of ivy on to the top of the wall and he opened his beak and sang a loud, lovely trill, merely to show off. Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off – and they are nearly always doing it.”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

“The bird dares to break the shell, then the shell breaks open and the bird can fly openly. This is the simplest principle of success. You dream, you dare and and you fly.”
― Israelmore Ayivor

“You’ll think this is a bit silly, but I’m a bit–well, I have a thing about birds.”
“What, a phobia?”
“Sort of.”
“Well, that’s the common term for an irrational fear of birds.”
“What do they call a rational fear of birds, then?”
― Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

    These are adorable! They remind me of the pink iced teacakes my grandmother used to make. Every time I’d visit her, she would have those fresh pink teacakes on the table waiting just for me. Brings back sweet memories.
