Snowy Easter

BUNNY CAKEWhat happens when it snows on Easter weekend? A few years back it did just that so I made a little Easter chocolate cake in response. Just when our corner of the world is having its spring awakening, winter won’t let go. This cake is a wave goodbye to that darn cold season and questioning, “What the heck is that white stuff doing on the back of the Easter bunny!”

Speckled blue egg cake

Speckled egg cake (2)I just love the idea of a cake for spring that emulates the pattern of a bird’s egg. Blue buttercream with watered-down cocoa powder (watered-down with vodka, no less!) spattered on the sides just lends itself to a really graphically appealing cake. The little speckled candy-covered chocolate eggs are kinda fun too.
