Robin's Egg Cupcakes

There was a sale on Robin's eggs and when I combined that with my coupons I got 3 bags for $1! So I decided to use my new candies to create my Easter cupcakes! The flash is a little bright in this picture, but the bottom layer is actually green. I could not do this in an assembly line fashion because once the green dried, the eggs wouldn't really stick to it, so I had to make one at a time. After I stuck the eggs on, I quickly piped the nest with a tip that creates the effect shown above. After the frosting dried they stayed on quite well, and tasted pretty yummy too I might add!
