Painted Easter cake with chocolate nest


Hello friends. I hope you had a nice weekend. I’m back today with yet another pretty little cake.  I’m not necessarily sharin a recipe per se but I wanted to show you how I made this chocolate nest.
It was easy to make and I think it would also look so pretty sitting on a plate as a place card.   paintedspringcakewithnestcraftberrybush-5


I placed some very thin rice noodles in a bowl and broke them into smaller pieces.  chocolatenestcraftberrybush-2
I then melted some chocolate in the microwave and tossed the noodles and the chocolate together until fully coated.
I lined the inside of a small bowl with some plastic wrap and placed the noodles in the bowl, making the shape of a nest.
I made a little hole in the center and placed a couple of chocolate eggs in the middle.
You can let it cool on the counter or place it in the fridge for a few minutes and you’re done!

    This is absolutely beautiful AND a brilliant idea! What a gorgeous cake, Lucy!!! You always do such pretty projects! Whenever I see your “pretty” ideas, it reminds me of an old issue of Canadian House & Home. I can’t remember the year (perhaps, early 90’s??). The front of the issue said “Bring Back the Pretty”. I wish I had kept that issue as it was filled with such lovely interiors and was such a refreshing change from a run of issues featuring modern, sleek interiors. I like a pared-down interior as I find it calming but, on the other hand, I also crave “pretty”. Thank you for this lovely post!

    Such a beautifully sweet cake! May I request a few details such as the type of fondant you used as well as the type of flower and leaf?
