Easter Cake

Hi all, hope everyone had a great Easter!

My daughter still hasn't done her easter egg hunt and I'm hoping she forgets because, thanks to all the easter baskets she received, she has candy coming out of her ear holes! Mom might just have to help her out a bit I think ;) You do what ya gotta do!

We spent Easter with Stephen's family and had a nice, while interesting to say the least, day. But I won't bore you with all the details!

I am going through a real cake phase right now. Just making, not eating ... fortunately! And I've been coming across some really awesome blogs and web sites that have inspired me so much.  This year, I decided to make an Easter bunny cake and, for the first time, worked with gum paste. It was so much fun! 

It was a white chocolate pound cake made from a doctored mix with white chocolate frosting and filling with raspberry filling also. The little bunnies and flowers were made from the gum paste. My father - in - law ate some and said what he usually says, 'did YOU make this? You sure you didn't BUY it?' So funny.

The first cake I made I used my new ultimate cake leveler with which turned out to be not so ultimate but flimsy and wonky and ruined the cake. I was mad but then decided to use the cake to make cake pops before making another. See below!

Red ones.
White and blue ones
(hey! New idea for July 4th!)
A weird pale green and white ones.
And colorful ones made by Willow! She got to do these all by herself while I got busy dipping and decorating the others.

This is definitely a topic that closes to me so I’m happy that you wrote about it. I’m also happy that you did the subject some justice. Not only do you know a great deal about it, you know how to present in a way that people will want to read more. I’m so happy to know someone like you exists on the web.

aw thanks for the check up! I am well and good. Just busy starting up a small cake business so this blog has taken a big back seat. Hopefully get back to it but it probably won't be for a few months. Hope all is well with you too!
