These are baked in clay pots, made to look like nest. I host a, "Hen Party", every year and serve these when the ladies arrive for the weekend. I made a mold for the hen's and hand paint each one, set some small eggs around and extra cakes can be displayed as bails of straw. A good friend of mine made the stand with the chicken wire behind it. Checkens and eggs are fondant, white cake with raspberry filling, straw is buttercream with a hint of almond.
