Cute idea!! Frost cupcakes with white icing. Bend pipe cleaner or licorice into an arch and push ends into each side of cupcake. Shake shredded coconut in stainless steel bowl. Sprinkle on food coloring bit by bit, mixing vigorously to distribute the color. Place a pinch of shredded coconut on each iced cupcake. Place candy on the "nest" of coconut.
