Bird Eggs in Nest Cake
This year, we found out that we had some temporary residents living in our backyard - A robin had decided to create a nest and lay her beautiful eggs right behind our house, and we got the pleasure of watching the eggs hatch, and eventually see the nestlings ready to take flight right in front of our eyes.

My mom was especially fascinated by the beautiful and vibrant blue hue of the robin's egg, and so I wanted to replicate the nest with the eggs for her birthday cake. The cake was a dark chocolate vegan cake topped with a chocolate glaze, and the eggs were colored fondant. The nest itself was made out of rice noodles which I covered in chocolate and shaped it like a traditional nest.
