This year Easter was a little delayed because oif some family health issues, so we're having "Easter" dinner tomorrow.
I wanted to help out the best that I could, so my contribution to dinner was dessert. I went waivered on what I was going to make and after a lot of searching and looking online and though books and magazines I came up with cupcakes, but the real question was, what kind?
Do I make something basic? Chocolate? Vanilla? Red Velvet? All are good, but still not what I wanted to do. Lemon, strawberry, raspberry, and still not good enough. I needed something original. Then I was shopping one afternoon and saw a package of Peeps, and it came to me I remembered a picture of a cake that I saw before that had the Peeps on it, so why couldn't I make my cupcakes that way.
But of course I couldn't just put the bunnies on the cake, I needed to make the bunnies hiding eggs in the grass and that is exactly what I did.
I just made a basic white cake and buttercream icing, but I used a whole lot of green food coloring and here is the final result. I can't wait to taste them.
