Easter goodies #1 - Easter Nest Cupcakes with Marzipan Eggs

I've decided to take you through a few of the treats that I've made for Easter in the past. Some of them were made to order. The others, for friends and family. I hope you enjoy them!!!

This is a very short post on my version of Easter Cupcakes. Last Easter, I made a ton of marzipan chicks, eggs, bonnets etc. to order. When I was done with those, I decided that I needed a change from all that. So I turned to my favorite Chocolate cake recipe - its a Nigella Lawson recipe, my no-fail, go-to recipe for a great chocolate cake. I made some chocolate cupcakes topped it with Chocolate frosting and placed 3 marzipan eggs on the top. I like how they turned out. The only thing I will do differently when I make them next, is reduce the size of the eggs a little.

I've added one of my favorite marzipan recipes. Click here to view it.
