Easter Cake

When I asked my family what they wanted for dessert on Easter, all 4 of them answered with “Cake”!  So I prodded further to find out what flavors and after some deliberation, everyone agreed to chocolate cake with peanut butter icing.

I also decided this year I was going to try my hand at home-made peanut butter eggs.  I’ve never made them before but being from Pennsylvania, I’ve enjoyed them many, many times!  I planned to put the two together.  Why not make an Easter basket full of peanut butter eggs?

I made two 6 inch chocolate cakes.  I torted and filled them with the peanut butter icing.  I did the basket weave with tip 21.  I tinted some peanut butter icing green to add grass to the basket for the eggs to have a place to lay.  I think it all turned out nicely.  What do you think?

Peter Cottontail

Have you met Peter Cottontail? He is white and fluffy and perfect for Easter. My kids had fun with this cake. White cake with white icing both with a hint of almond.

I accented Peter’s tie with green and some M & M candies. I used purple in his ears and for his mouth and whiskers with more M & M candies for his eyes and nose.

 Happy Easter!
