Cute Easter Nest Cupcakes

Marshmallow Bunnies

    Frost a marshmallow with purchased frosting, then roll it in flaked coconut. Attach two miniature marshmallows for the feet and decorate with candies for the eyes, nose, and whiskers. For ears? Use kitchen shears to cut a strip from the top edge of a large marshmallow, then attach with a bit of frosting.

Easy Confetti Celebration Cupcakes

    Celebrate spring with these fun cupcakes; add food coloring to small amounts of vanilla frosting and pipe it atop the cupcakes to give the treats a festive feel.

Easter Egg Cupcakes

    Confetti cupcakes become fun Easter treats with a trio of candy-coated chocolate-covered peanuts set atop a bed of coconut and frosting. Bake a batch of cupcakes from a box of cake mix with confetti sprinkles, according to package directions. Spread white frosting on the finished cupcakes after they've cooled and sprinkle toasted shredded coconut on top to resemble a nest. Finish with pastel candies.

Easy Flower Cookies on Sticks

    Sugar cookies with milk-chocolate-star centers make pretty flowers on crafts sticks, which can be arranged into an eye-catching and edible Easter table centerpiece.

Nest Eggs

    A package of crunchy wonton noodles, melted chocolate, and some Jordan almonds are all you need to create these tasty treats. In a bowl, toss noodles with melted chocolate and use your hands to form nest shapes with an indentation in the center. Work quickly and in batches to form nests before the chocolate sets. Set on waxed paper to dry. Serve with a few Jordan almond "eggs" in each nest.

Egg-Shape Snack Bars

    Stuff plastic Easter eggs with still-soft crisped rice cereal treats for a ready-in-minutes food gift. (Lightly butter the insides of the eggs to keep the mixture from sticking.) Present just the treats, or leave them to be discovered in their shells for a yummy surprise.

Easter Egg Cookies

    Pipe tinted dough into simple egg shapes to form these fun cookies that fit perfectly in a grass-filled basket.

Cookie Blossom Bouquet

    Bake cookies in flower shapes with cookie sticks (slide the sticks under the raw dough on the pan, and press the dough in around it). Frost in pastel shades and then decorate as desired. For the base, fill a decorative container with floral foam and top with faux grass. Insert the cookies so they vary in height. For the tallest ones, you can tape two sticks together and wrap with floral tape.
