Hello my sweet friends! It’s been a few months since I’ve been around here please forgive me. Between working, being a mama, and helping with my husband’s photography business these past few months; the blog has unfortunately taken the back seat. However, I’ve been eager to be back with more DIY’s, more parties and more family adventures!!!
We love celebrating Easter around our house. First of all because it’s an important date for us who believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and second because I love everything Spring-themed, bunnies and pastel colors. I made this Easter Bird’s nest cake topper some time ago, what I love about the most is that it’s edible! I can tell you all the wrong things about the cake and the photos. I didn’t have my lighting back then so I was shooting with just natural light, not fully understanding my camera’s manual setting yet. The cake drizzle didn’t look great and I probably forgot the dowels. I didn’t cut it at home because it was so big that I just took it to work. As much as I love shooting cutting the cake and cake slices, I couldn’t bring myself to waste such a big cake. LOL! I also thought it looked amazing! You can’t see it, but it was a funfetti cake and you will be surprised how easy it was to make the Bird’s Nest Cake Topper!
Ingredients for the Easter Bird’s Nest Cake Topper
- Mini Pretzel Sticks
- Chocolate flavored candy chips
- 2 ceramic bowls
- Plastic wrap
- Melt Candy chips according to the package
- Arrange a good amount of pretzel sticks inside one of the bowls
- Pour the melted chocolate, enough to cover all of them, but not drenched, so that when it dries you are still able to see them
- Place a piece of plastic wrap over it
- Place the 2nd bowl on top. Make sure there are enough pretzels to form the bowl
- Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
- Carefully, detach the pretzel nest from the bowl. If it doesn’t come out easily, don’t force it. Microwave it for about 3-5 seconds and try again
- Carefully place it on your cake and add egg jelly beans
Voila! You’re done! I placed it on a buttercream 2 layer drip cake, covered in candy and sprinkles and decorated with Easter fondant characters.
