What Southern Easter brunch is complete without deviled eggs? While we love our Grandmothers traditional egg plates, most can only hold 8-12 eggs at a time, leaving the hostess on regular refill duty. This color egg platter holds 24 eggs! While it’s perfect for Easter, we could find uses for it all through the Spring and Summer months.
The chicken has flown the coop with this adorable cake made with Wilton’s Easter Egg Nonstick Cake Pan. With the easy to follow instructions on Wilson’s website this fun single serving size cake is easier to make than you think.
Why spend extra money on those bunny shape lollipops and chocolate when you can make them at home for much less. Add a homemade flare to this years Easter baskets or turn an afternoon into a fun candy making project with the kids.
Why have a plain sheet cake at your Easter brunch when you can serve this Stand-Up Lamb cake. If your cake decorating skills aren’t advanced enough for this elaborate icing finish, try giving the cake a base coat of Buttercream and adding mini marshmallows for the fluffy fur. Add decorated egg cookies to the platter and you have a picture perfect centerpiece for your Easter meal.
If you would rather have a Christian centerpiece to your Easter meal, Wilton offers this beautiful Cross Cake mold. Use it for baptism, first communion, confirmation, or church events. Serve alone or add as the center adornment to a basic sheet cake. If your family Christmas tradition includes a birthday cake for Jesus this would make a perfect addition either alone or layered on top of a sheet cake
Who wouldn’t enjoy baking with the help of these whimsical measuring cups available from World Market. Instead of searching through your cabinets and draws, keep this cute Beehive Measuring Cups set on your counter as a Spring touch all year long.
What an adorable addition to any Easter basket for an adult or a child who enjoys cooking with Mom and Dad. At $3.99 these Bee Measuring Spoons are also a cute way to add a Spring flare to your own kitchen!
