In past years, it would be almost time for me to be baking Easter treats. Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love spring time, and the colors, flowers, eggs, decorations, and flavors of Easter. This year, we will be away for Easter weekend. There will be lots of fun and frivolity with my friend, Connie, her dad, and my Godchildren, Corey and Chaudra. There will also be Easter baskets, goodies, dying eggs, and an egg hunts with their two little girls, Cadi and Cheira. It will be a busy and fun weekend, and I will be doing some cooking for the whole gang. Here are some goodies from past Easter Sundays.
A "Lemon Blast" cake with lemon cream cheese frosting:
A smaller version with "bees":
Fig muffins for Easter Brunch
Lemon bread with lemon curd
Easterberries (strawberries dipped in white chocolate with sprinkles)
Easter egg cakes:
Those "bees" landed on this lemon-olive oil cake!
Wow, I forgot about these egg petit fours from 2001!
AND these striped, filled cookies!
A pizza rustica is traditional family Easter food.
My favorite: the BUNNY CAKE
