How cute would this be sitting on the table after Easter dinner?
Vanilla Bean Baker has created this carrot cake with milk chocolate butter cream to look like a bird’s nest. She has posted the carrot cake recipe on the blog and a link to the butter cream frosting.
On the plus side, it is easy to put together. Just bake 3 carrot cakes, the final layer on top you need to cut a hole for the nest. I like this part, because I get to eat the cake. Of course, to make sure it tastes good for the guests. Frost it, cool it, frost it and then pipe on lines in different lengths. She uses a piping bag, but I’m sure you could put the frosting in a plastic bag and snip a small piece from the corner.
Put it on the table and let your family be amazed.
