Mini Hama bead Easter Egg cake toppers




Since I received a big bag of mini Hama beads for Christmas I've been busy making all sorts of things. I blogged about some of them here - mini Hama bead projects - and one of the designs that I really enjoyed making was some mini Hama bead Easter Eggs.

The bag of mini beads had all sorts of different colours in, perfect for making the little multi-coloured eggs.

Each egg is about 3cm in height, and I thought that they would make lovely cupcake toppers. You could either glue a cocktail stick to the back to stick them firmly into the cake, or else just place them on top of the icing. Our favourite Easter treat is chocolate nest cakes, so I made up a batch and used the mini Easter Eggs as a little decoration.

My Easter nest cakes are made with four Shredded Wheat biscuits mixed with 100g melted chocolate (although a little more chocolate wouldn't have hurt) then placed into cupcake cases to look like nests. A lovely Easter treat!

The designs for these mini Hama bead Easter Eggs are taken from the Hama Mini Beads Inspiration 13 idea book.
