This is my final entry for the project, I decided I would make enough for the entire class,
so this meant 48 cupcakes!!
I thought since Easter was coming I would make some fancy festive cupcakes.
I have never made so many ever, so this was quite the task.
The batter I used was the Yellow Sunshine Cupcakes recipe, so I could use my own recipe to show off to the class and also so I could add colors to the batter to create the pastel Easter colors I was hoping for. I had to quadruple the recipe to make 48 cupcakes, as my original recipe was for 12.
I added the amount of food coloring that was on the back of the food coloring box to create a turquoise, pink, purple and yellow.
I made the Butter Cream Icing to start the nests for the eggs. I added margarine, instead of butter, as one of the quadruples to make the icing a bit more smooth. I also added yellow food coloring to make it more spring like.
I then used some chocolate icing and mixed it in with the butter cream to make the actual nests. The Chocolate Creamy Icing was what I had used for the yellow sunshine cupcakes and they tasted really good together. I also wanted to make the nests the color of twigs and hay. I piped the nest in a circle to create a basket type for laying the candy eggs in.
I used some malted chocolate candy coated eggs and sour jelly bean eggs to add more color and crunch!
It took a long time to make these, but it was really fun,
especially to see all the bright colors and to finish off the project.
