This Bird’s Nest cake is both elegant and delicious! This will be the showstopper of all of your Easter desserts.  These were incredibly easy to create. I am not the best when it comes to working with frosting and I was more than pleasantly surprised at how easy these came together.  The results are just gorgeous!

I made these using boxed yellow cake mix.  I added in a few drop of yellow food coloring to really bring out that burst of yellow color.  

I baked my yellow cake mix in mini bundt pans.  I wanted to create these gorgeous little nests that everyone could enjoy individually.  You can definitely create the same exact look using a larger bundt pan.

I wanted to use homemade buttercream to frost these to ensure I got the perfect green color.  Add a few drops of green food coloring until you get the perfect green color.
