Happy Easter everyone!

This week we had some really bad rain here in CT and our basement flooded.  Awesome!  So, after long nights of cleaning and hunching over a shop vac, I needed some serious baking-therapy and these are what came out!

I admit, I used boxed mix b/c I didn’t have all of the ingredients in the house, but I’m OK with that.  When a girl’s gotta bake, a girl’s gotta bake!

I’m not sure where I got the idea for the frosting ‘nest’…maybe it was original.  I don’t know.  Anyway, any excuse to use Robin Eggs is good enough for me – I love those things!

They’re getting rave reviews from the co-workers as I type!

Please forgive the terrible office lighting.

1 box Strawberry cake mix with necessary eggs/oil/water
1 can Lemon frosting
1 bag Robin Egg candies

Bake cupcakes according to package directions and allow to cool completely.

Empty frosting into a piping bag fitted with your smallest round tip.  Pipe frosting in a large circle all over the top of the cupcake.

Top with 2 Robin Eggs and allow to harden slightly (so the eggs do not slip off) before storing in an airtight container.
