Easter 2013

This week I have been baking and making items for Easter.  First I made some hot cross buns, which unfortunately didn't rise as well as they should have!
Then I baked some carrot muffins
 and topped them with Malteser bunnies sitting in a "field" of cream cheese frosting.
Finally I baked a Simnel cake
 and decorated it with marzipan, royal icing, mini eggs
and a chick sitting in a Kinder egg.
 I put up our Easter "tree" with the decorations that I made last year
 and hung up my homemade wreath with knitted chicks.
 This year I crocheted a bunny using this tutorial
and some eggs to accompany my knitted bunnies.
And of course Easter wouldn't be complete without a chocolate bunny
 or two!
 Happy Easter to you all, Pj x

Stop it! Now I'm really hungry... where to start? I think I'll have a carrot muffin followed by simnel cake if I've got room. I'll save the hot cross bun for breakfast.
The cakes look stunning and all the yarn makes are so sweet.

Thank you Ellie for your sweet comment. I'd give the hot cross buns a miss - they are quite dense! :) Best wishes, Pj x
