Beautiful Bird Nest Cake
Food & Drink
To make this cake:
Three layers of carrot cake, cooled. Apply a layer of buttercream icing between each layer as you stack your layers.
When the top layer has been added, cut a line approximately 4″ in diameter around the center of the layer.
Using a small off-set spatula, cut all around the circle just deep enough to go through the top layer only. Lift out the cut circle and set aside (for snacking on later).
Apply frosting around the remains of the top layer and inside the *nest.* Finish dirty icing the entire cake. Set in the fridge to cool before applying the finished layer of frosting.
When cake has cooled, remove from fridge and apply final coat of frosting. Smooth out the frosting around entire cake.
Fill a piping bag with the milk chocolate buttercream. Using a #4 tip, begin piping lines in random directions and random lengths. Start piping insides the nest being and then work your way to the outside top of the cake.
Once you have completed piping the nest on the top layer, begin piping the sides of the cake. I found it easier to pipe in 3-inch sections from top to bottom working my way all around the cake. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take as long as you think it will.
Once your *nest* design has been completed, fill the nest with your choice of coloured candy Easter eggs. I used M&M’s. If you are good at fondant sculpture, you can make the bird. As you can see, I bought a little inedible one to decorate the nest.
