There's something about Easter baking that's so cheerful. Maybe it's the bright colours, maybe it's the anticipation of sharing it with friends and family. Whatever it is, channel a bit of that cheerfulness with these yummy little nests.
You can use your favourite macaroon or cookie recipe for these little nests. I used the macaroon recipe from The Cookie Writer. They are the best macaroons I've ever tasted/made, so go check it out the recipe!
All it takes it a few little changes for a spring upgrade:
♥ Before you bake your macaroons, flatten them out a little and put a thumb print in the center
♥ After they've cooled, add a few jelly beans or chocolate eggs in the middle
♥ If you would like them to travel or stay better, you can use a dab of icing to keep the eggs in place.
Also, I would like to make an announcement for a contest. It's not very exciting, but I think it might be cool to have a little art contest. I was thinking that you could enter a relatively simple drawing/painting piece, and one or two winners would have their pieces made into a plushie by me. Entries would be due by next Friday, April 10th. It's not a very exciting prize, but if any of you are interested please let me know and I can work out all of the details!
Have a lovely Easter Weekend ♥
