Bird's Nest in a Jar
Cook's notes: recipe from atthepicketfence.com makes 24 cupcakes

I liked the concept of this recipe and the final product looks very yummy. Follow the link above for the recipe .

I came up with the following idea to simplify the bird's nest cupcake idea 
1. Make vanilla or lemon cupcakes from a box
2. Cool and spread a thin layer of lemon curd on top of each cupcake
3. Freeze for 30 minutes
4. Spread prepared cream cheese frosting on top of the lemon curd
5. Sprinkle with toasted coconut for nest
6. Add 3 Hershey candy coated blue eggs to each nest

PEEP POETRY
Peep Poetry exists for the same reason all poetry exists, to attempt to express, in our imperfect humanness, our feelings and desires concerning the popular marshmallow confection. Human creativity has spawned several poetic styles, each capable of expressing a different facet of our peepal affection. 
Enjoy some Peeps Haiku (5-7-5) from  theblessingsfamily.com
