Each year our family has a Easter egg hunt. It is a big event....over 1,000 filled eggs, games, food, fun and giggles. And of course, the Easter Bunny!!!

I have two grandchildren. A boy and a girl. I wanted the little bunnies on the top of the Easter Cake to represent them.

I simply made a double layer large round white cake on the bottom. Icing first and then covering with white fondant. I placed five dowel rods in the center of the cake in a three inch circle. The top double layer was chocolate. Again, iced and covered with fondant.

I decorated the cake with cut out flowers from fondant. I made the quilt by cutting out hearts with fondant and rolling them onto a small cut of the fondant. Flowers were made with cut outs and a toothpick covered in green fondant. I formed the bunnies from white fondant and adding details.

Coolest Easter Peep Cake

I made these cakes for my families Easter get together. I bought the pan at Target a couple years ago. Last year, I made a home-made Carrot Cake with cream cheese frosting, but this year I wanted to do something a little more fun.

I used a boxed cake mix, and store bought frosting that I thickened a little with powdered sugar and colored with a few drops of coloring. Spread the frosting as smooth as possible and sprinkle matching edible colored glitter to match. Then for the border, just alternate the colored Peeps candies.

It was a big hit with everyone!!

My good friends have a wonderful Easter party for friends and family. I wanted to make a cake that the kids ans adults would like.

I started early with the trees and bunnies making them from fondant. I wish I would have used gum paste as it dries much faster. The colors on the bunnies were the edible pens though they did not work well. I used food coloring too.

The cake was a 2 layer yellow with butter cream. Everyone loved the animated affect!

This Easter Cake was a fun cake to make, all the characters were made using fondant which I colored, then they were left to dry for a couple of days.

The cake is a 10" Victoria sponge and I used lemon butter cream which you make from standard butter cream then add lemon curd. This gives it a creamy consistency and is much easier to work with. The pond was painted on using colored icing,

I made these Easter Chick Cupcakes for my son's Easter Party at school. I used marble cupcakes. I spread yellow icing on top. I then colored coconut with yellow food coloring. I dipped the iced cupcake in the yellow coconut. I put on chocolate chips for eyes and cut triangle shapes out of orange fruit slices.

My son loved them and was very proud to show them off to his friends.

I made these Easter Cupcakes for my daughter's Easter party at school. I used marble cupcakes. I colored my icing green and used a grass tip then placed 3 jelly beans on top to look like Easter eggs in the grass.

These were a major hit with the class especially the teachers.

So Refreshing to hear school's celebration
by: Mrs. Greene

It was so refreshing to hear that these Easter Cup Cakes were taken to the school Easter Party. In Texas we are not even allowed to say we are out for Easter vacation or Christmas vacation any more. I was so pleased to know your school district still believes in Christian traditions, because at Plano ISD is not! Happy Easter everyone!
