Egg nest card and cupcake Tutorial

You can still enter my give away!!!

Great Easter idea for Easter parties.

Easter is in few days, so i dropped some little gifts for Easter to my friends. I also have 2 Birthdays.


This is the picture i adore from the Graphic Fairy. Here is my idea...

I made cards....I printed this picture on wallet sizes...Cut my cards from the store in half.


Cut some pink polka dot paper to frame the picture....My favorite "adore" stamp. A ribbon on top. Used my puncher to make holes.




I darkened the edge of all papers with brown ink.


SUPER cute! The kids helped me, especially My Fairy...She masters the paper cutting...



I made some strawberry cupcakes from a box mix....Strawberry icing piped in swirl. Coconut Cookie and 3 blue peanut candies.



Coconut cookie

  1. 1 package flaked Coconut
  2. 2/3 cup sugar
  3. 1/3 cup flour
  4. 1/4 teas. salt
  5. 3 egg whites
  6. 1/2 vanilla extract
Preheat oven 325*, Mix all ingredients well.
Make little balls with mixture. With your thumb, press in the center to form the nest. Cook on cookie sheet until a little bit golden on sides and bottom.

At Christmas i make those. Add Strawberry jam in the nest after they are baked and dip the bottom in melted chocolate..




I have been using this instead of sugar, it's natural. I like it.



I think my friends will love it. I put an inspirational quote on the cards...Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  ~S.D. Gordon
Another one that i like...
Let every man and woman count himself immortal.  Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection.  Let him say not merely, "Christ is risen," but "I shall rise."  ~Phillips Brooks


You could use those cupcakes at the Easter table as a center piece...In a tower


Use your favorite dishes and tie the Napkin with a blue ribbon...




French obsession the 1st of the month linking party !!! And French give away!






This cake, cupcake and cards are great for Parties. Birthday, Spring, Easter and Baby shower.First Birthday too.....For a Boy or a Girl.

So cute!! Thanks for the tip on the agave instead of sugar. I've been thinking of trying it. How much do you use instead of sugar? And can you bake with it? Like make cookies? What have you been using it for? I'm all ears. HaPpY EaSteR<3

Deliciously pretty! I'm so glad that you can use aguave nector. I'm hypoglycemic, so I can't have sugar, it gives me a terrible headache and puts me to sleep. Aguave keeps every even so I dont' have a reaction. I'm always impressed to see recipes with this ;) I wish I could have come to your home for Easter! ;)
