Revisiting Easter Past~
I love having photos.. all kinds..
I just finished looking at our wee grandchildren from Easter last year:) What a difference a yr makes!! One additional grandchild and another on the way!
And no snow this year! Yay!
I am making carrot cake this year because the small ones are older and WILL be eating their Easter chocolates so I am making less little sweets..but I had fun last year and wanted to share 3 little ideas for any of you wanting a new idea.
The top cookies are simply sugar cookies.. w/ a glacé icing.. which I had a ball handpainting..This technique..was all thanks to Mary.
The next is an idea Jain found online and shared with me..They were a hit..:)
Online the recipe is everywhere..Bird Nests Cookies:)
And the last is perhaps one of my favorite ideas from Ricardo..
The base for mine was his recipe.. a chocolate mousse pie.. that you top with a chocolate hen and eggs..I served it in a pyrex pie plate nestled in a straw handled basket..that must be at least 20 yrs old:)Add chocolate curls..mini hens..eggs and you are done..it works well with a cheesecake too:)
Anyway if you can find a hen..these are really cute on the Easter table..
Now to get ready for tomorrow..My fun is the anticipation of seeing the kids oustide at the hunt.
I actually get tears in my eyes.They are so cute to me.
