It's not long now and Easter will be here. The shops are already stacked with all sorts of mini eggs, I'm sure it gets earlier every year. Trying to be organised I have already designed our Easter cupcakes for Cherry Amour. In fact to avoid the house work I practically spend the whole day getting the hang of making cupcake and icing them again. So I thought I would share my cake efforts with you.
I have used several different icing techniques, grass, swirls and string (?) which I will share with you through vlogging very soon.
The nest cup cakes were made by using a swirl technique at the bottom then I used the grass nozzle to create the nest. These were topped with Smarties mini eggs.
The bunny cupcakes were made by creating grass with the nozzle and the flowers were made out of fondant using a plunger. For the rabbit I made it with a medium sized cutter.
I'm looking forward to making some Easter nests closer to the time with the children and I have some good ideas for giant Easter cupcakes too.
