My Easter egg nest cake for Sunday.


I really love my Easter egg nest idea, so i made it into a cake...Under a cloche, even cuter...



To make this cake with a big Coconut cookie, see recipe. And cards, and cupcakes, HERE.



You make the cake with one sheet cake, Strawberry cake from box mix, cut when frozen. Make sure it will fit under your cloche. Put a layer of Strawberry icing in middle.


I put some mousse for the outside. Use a decorating pipe to place it around the cake.


Used Egg Malted milk in the middle of cookie.....



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