Every year we have a fabulous Easter egg hunt at my parent's home. Every family is in charge of bringing a basket full of a special treat for each person. We then hide the baskets in addition to eggs and everyone gets a ton of stuff! For example: My sister-in-law brought a basket full of Pringle cans. My other sister brought containers of cookies for each person to have. I had a great idea, why doesn't everyone grab a cupcake from mine?!!!
So these were my inspirations:

Yes, I can do the nests.....

and I can totally make delicious cupcakes!
So here was my attempt. The nests I made by mixing melted milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips with Asian noodles.
After dolloping a good nest size on a greased baking sheet, I put on the eggs immediately.
The butter cream was what made them so special. It was fluffy, delicious, and oh-so-bad for me! I even made mini cupcakes for the kids or for individuals who just wanted a small bite.
Problem one arose when we had so many treats, desserts, and candy, that almost everyone took their cupcakes home. Problem two was that I ate all the left over nests MYSELF!!! Diet starts Monday?
My second Easter attempt was bunny rolls.
I saw these cute images:

I thought the second image was something I could totally do.
These were my bunny rolls.
Not exactly the same....
some definitely lost their ears in the baking process.
What can I say? I attempted to be festive but, not everything worked out.
That's okay, I guess.
At least my kids enjoyed their cupcakes and rolls without judgement!
