Some birds just won't settle for sticks and hair and dirt to make a nest. They need shredded coconut, lovingly hand-dyed and placed on a cookie. Of course these most special of all birds only lay candy eggs, my favorite!
My nieces and nephews don't have birthdays coming up any time soon, but once July rolls around, guess what their favorite auntie has in store? Dipping a mini cupcake in icing and sprinkles sounds like so much fun it should be illegal.
I'm fairly certain that we've seen cupcakes posing as every food group, every meal throughout the day, every fantastical food we could imagine. I really appreciate that this has a gummy candy egg on it but real bacon. There is no reason to fake it with the bacon. That's the real lesson here.
Oh love, love made of chocolate. You are so lovely. And peanuts, let's not forget you in your lovely warm, roasty glory. And caramel, you are gooey and sticky and round and sweet, thank you for doing what you do. These cupcakes are for you.
