Easter might be my favorite holiday. After the dreary winter months, I love welcoming back warm weather, budding flowers, new life, and colorful clothing. This year on Easter, I’m planning to embrace pastels with an outfit that’s easy to transition from the brunch table to an egg hunt with friends. What will you be wearing?
A band of bunnies? A round of rabbits? A handful of hares? A crew of cottontails? Whatever you want to call them, these cupcake toppers are very easy and very cute - and all you need are five simple supplies. How sweet will these look on the dessert table this Easter?!
Materials needed: white pom-poms, colored paper – white, pink, saffron yellow, toothpicks, glue, scissors.
Step 7: Insert into cupcakes and enjoy.
1. Design Mom’s idea of the perfect Easter gift box.
2. The cutest 1 year old birthday party on Kelli Murray’s Blog (by Sitting In A Tree.)
3. Miniature terrariums by The House That Lars Built.
4. Martha Stewart’s perfectly folded bunny napkins.
5. Mr. Printable’s Origami ‘Bipyramid’ tutorial.
Here is a quick and easy project for Easter. We picked up some baskets from the thrift store and gave them a fresh look with just a little paint. It took barely any time and cost only a few dollars. A cute little way to brighten up your easter basket. (ps: I can’t believe this Easter Egg Hunt was a year ago! Time flies.)
When we were in Spain last year we managed to eat churros con chocolat in just about every city and town we visited. My jeans were fitting tighter by the end of the trip but I was in heaven. I loved them so much that in Madrid we even stopped to buy a Churro Maker so we could try to make them at home. I had forgotten about it until I was reorganizing my kitchen and I found it again! Turns out they sell Churro Makers on Amazon so there is no need to head to Spain to get one (unless you want to!) Ps: my friend Andrea says she just makes them with a pastry bag and a giant frosting tip. I am planning on having a Churros con Chocolat party soon but it was fun to put together this treat with my team. Have you ever made Churros with Chocolate? It was surprisingly easy. See below for the churro and and the dark chocolate recipe.
Find the churro recipe right here and the dipping sauce is here:
Thick Dark Chocolate Dipping Sauce
- 1 3.5 oz Ghiradelli Dark chocolate bar
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup half and half
Break chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl. Heat half and half in microwave or on stovetop until steaming.
Starting with 1/4 cup, pour hot half and half over chocolate. Let stand for a minute or two to allow chocolate to soften. Whisk with a fork until chocolate is incorporated and smooth. Add additional half and half a little at a time to reach thick consistency.
Serve warm with churros.
