Mike and I get each other Easter baskets each year. I know, what can I say?
One of the best stories of the day came from our friend's 3 year old grand daughter Taylor. Because she is a bit afraid of the Easter Bunny, she left him a note asking him to leave the Easter baskets outside on the porch. And that's where she found her basket this morning!
I decided to make a bunny cake to celebrate the big day. Using a cake tin I found this week while unpacking my kitchen stuff, I set out on this new challenge.
Despite the cake batter overflowing and spilling in the oven (and oh yes, briefly catching on fire), and a couple of pieces breaking off the bunny, I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Don't worry I don't think I'll pursue a second career as a baker!

We tried a couple of new recipes for our Easter meal. We grilled a ham with honey-brown sugar-orange juice glaze, and it was amazing! Add some Au gratin potatoes with Parmesan cheese and grilled asparagus, and we had a feast!`
And now it's time to get off my feet and rest, and I think that bunny cake is calling my name!
Have a great week!
