Spring Cupcakes

 
I used a variety of inspirations for these cupcakes.  The baby bird, or peeps as everyone called them, cupcakes have been on my "to bake" list for quite a while after seeing them on Martha Stewart's site.  I used Magnolia Bakery's birthday cake and buttercream recipes.  The toasted coconut was very yummy and baby birds were easy to create.  I saw the ridiculously cute Easter Basket cupcakes on Bakerella's site and threw some eggs into the mix.

I think these are so cute! In fact, I can't remember, but I might have already told you so on facebook, too. I have to admit, it took me a split second to figure out the baby birds in their nest. I thought it was a three-headed mutant bird for a brief moment before I said, "Oh, I get it! How adorable."
