Place individual paper baking cups in a muffin tray, pour in mixture until they are about 2/3 full. Bake in the oven at 190°C for 20 minutes or until golden. While cupcakes are cooling on a wire rack, prepare frosting.

To Decorate : To toast coconut, spread a thin layer on a baking tray and place under the grill 180°C for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until light golden and even in colour.
Pipe a circle of frosting on to the tops of cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle with toasted coconut to create nests. Place three chocolate Easter eggs in the middle of the coconut nest.
