We use this Kataifi Bird's Nest in the Mother's Day Coconut Cake Tutorial.
Kataifi is a finely shredded phyllo or filo dough that is used to make Middle Eastern and Mediterranean pastries.
You can find it in the freezer section of a well-stocked supermarket, or you can buy it online. I purchased mine at www.mid-eastpantry.com
The day before you plan on making the nest, place frozen kataifi in the refrigerator, to thaw. Repackage unused phyllo dough and refreeze.
