Chick-in-a-Nest Easter Chocolate Cake

Thanks for Sharing!

Chick-in-a-Nest Chocolate Cake is perfect for gracing an Easter Table and will make a very pretty and tasty Easter Dessert.

I made this cake years ago and have always wanted to update the photos. I guess I never think of it much until Easter season and then never got around to it before now. I’m so glad I did because the photos are a lot clearer and a little more than before. Although the frosting color is much more brilliant in the older version as seen here.



Easter Desserts

Easter desserts are really just some of the best! I love the variety of desserts and food that come out at Easter. I think anything Spring-Like can be made into an Easter dessert. Fun pastel colors like blue, yellow, pink, green can be added to a cake (whatever flavor) to make it an Easter dessert.



Egg-in-a-Nest Chocolate Cake Recipe

  • 1 Box of Lemon Cake Mix
  • Ingredients for cake mix
  • Whipped Cream
  • A Yellow Chick Peep
  • Easter Chocolate Eggs
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Yellow Food Coloring


  • Mix and bake cake according to directions on the package. Allow to cool.

To Frost & Decorate:

  • To make the grass, place coconut into a Ziploc bag. Add green food coloring, shake with hands until the coconut tunes green. Add a few drops of food coloring to the whipped cream. Mix to get a yellow color. Add a little more food coloring if desired. Mix.
  • Frost cake.
  • Sprinkle “grass” around the cake and in the top middle.

Chick-in a Nest Topping: Add Chocolate Eggs in the grass, both at the top and around the bottom of the cake.

  • Place the Peep Chick sitting in the middle of the grass over the eggs – that’s the nest. Picture a chicken in a tall grass laying eggs, that’s the idea.
