Easter is so early this year that I have not even put up my decorations. I will do that this week. We are having Easter here on the farm this year and I want some very special desserts for my little sweetie. I found some cakes, cookies and cupcakes that I really must try.
Oh how cute! The first cake is the easiest to make. I do love the elegant middle one and my little darling would love the Hello Kitty Bunny cake.
If you don't want to make a big cake how about some adorable Easter Cupcakes. The first one and second are so sweet. Now the third are quite easy just some fondant on iced chocolate cupcakes. The easiest is the cute little Robin's Nests. I have made these a lot and they are really simple. Just toasted coconut on white icing and little blue balls of icing. The use a leaf tip for the beaks and add the eyes. I saw them in Martha Stewart Easter issue years ago.
If you are really feeling ambitious how about impressing with an Easter Cupcake Bouquet. The first two are not as hard as they look, a little time consuming. Now the Hydrangea Bouquet is definately for a seasoned decorator.
If you have a lot of patience a basket of cake pops look fabulous. I made cake pops only once, if you recall for my daughter-in-laws baby shower. I found them messy and time consuming and vowed to never tackle them again, which I have not.
Now we're into my territory. I love to make decorative cookies, especially for Easter. There is something about icing them in sweet pastels that gets me in the mood for Spring. Don't you think those flowers and carrot/bunny cookes are adorable! I just love all of these but I think I will make the cute little egg shaped bunnies for my little darling this Easter.
