Bird’s Nest Mason Jar Cupcakes

Embrace the warm-weather season with these darling and decadent Bird’s Nest Cupcakes from At the Picket Fence, nestled in glass jars for perfect portability.

Topped with toasted coconut and layered with white cake, lemon curd, apricot-pineapple preserves, and cream cheese frosting, these mouth-watering morsels are fantastic for picnics and parties (or as a mid-week treat for your own lunchbox).

Make a batch of these bird’s nest Mason jar cupcakes with step-by-step instructions from At the Picket Fence.

Make-ahead tip: If you plan to pack these in a lunch bag or picnic basket, slightly under-fill the jars so your lids will still fit on top.
