This Robin’s Nest cake is sure to impress all of your friends and family this Easter! A delicious (and easy to make) treat!

Robin's Nest Cake

I recently got a box full of goodies from Tastefully Simple. It was their Easter Collection and designed to help you with practically every part of the meal for Easter Dinner. I was so excited to dig in and start baking and cooking.

My absolute favorite recipe is the Robin’s Nest Cake. It was really easy even though it appears to be somewhat daunting. Oh, and it is delicious! We now make it every year and guess what — it can be made with any cake or cake mix!
