I want Spring.
I want Spring NOW.
After freezing the "eggs" for a few hours, they were ready to be dipped. Since I couldn't get that perfect "robin's egg" blue color I needed for the eggs, I made it by melting and mixing white, light green and a few navy blue candy wafers. After dipping them, I set them on wax paper to dry. (The eggs look more green in this photo, but they are most definitely blue!)
After crumbcoating the cake, I gave it a finish coat of chocolate icing and set the nest and the eggs on top. I opted for a thick buttercream rather than the dark chocolate ganache that was used in the Macy's photo. I finished it off with a birthday script in blue buttercream and smaller eggs tucked into the icing around the base.
