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.
