Holidays bring out the creativity in cooks, and Easter is no exception
Check out these cute ideas for dolling up the deviled eggs and putting a hop into the Easter coconut-grass or carrot cupcakes.
Use olive bits for the eyes and a carrot snip for the nose.
Cute owl chicks – with carrot feet and green olive eyes. Warning: ripe olive eyes cause them to look like aliens…
Pimento or carrot bits can be used for feet and beaks.
I cannot recall where I pulled this photo above, but I like its pristine way with the chicks and including the mama hen in the group, too. Again, pimentos or carrots for the beaks and tiny black olive spots for eyes. (If you created this, please let me know and I’ll credit you!)
Bunny Butt Cupcakes
Now, equal time for the bunnies.
Start with frosting (I’d make it green just to replicate grass, or make it dirt-like with cookie crumbs.
Cute, with the jellybeans and green and black icing for the tops of the cupcakes.
Carrot cakes make sensible and delicious cupcakes under all these things.
Chocolate chips, and a chocolate-cookie crumb mixture spread on top of the chocolate frosting make these a chocolate-lover’s friend. From dogdogmoose.blogspot.com
Don’t forget the original bunny face cake
I wrote about making this cake, and ones like it – favorites of the Easter cooks in the ’50s and ’60s. It was printed on the coconut package long years ago and in magazines, as well. It’s still my favorite.
