Easter Fun!

Happy Easter eve! I’ve been busy today getting things ready for the Easter festivities. I have three Pinterest projects I’m doing this year. Two of them I did today and the other is half way done and will be finished tomorrow.

First up: Colored Deviled Eggs!

It can be a bit tough to find detailed instructions for these on Pinterest, so what I did was fill three large coffee mugs with water, put in about ten drops of food color (McCormick Neon) into each one (just keep adding till you think it’s dark enough) and plopped the egg whites in. The longer you leave them in the brighter they are. Super fun project.

Second: The Peeps Bunny Cake

I’m sure you’ve seen this cake more than once if you’ve looked around for Easter treats on Pinterest. I figured I would give it a shot and I’m so glad I did. It came out really cute and it’s going to be very festive tomorrow. You don’t really need a recipe for this. I just used 1 cake mix (split in half and baked in two 9 inch round pans) and 2 cans of store bought buttercream frosting. I used 4 boxes of Peeps (I had tons leftover but I wanted color options) and 1 bag of Easter M&Ms on top. The actual decorating was super easy and didn’t take much time at all and I was so happy with the results.

I’ve got one more cake to finish up tomorrow and the rest of Easter dinner to prepare. What are you doing this holiday weekend?
