Easter themed layer cake

A while ago I posted about this Rainbow Cake that I thought was to.die.for.  I finally found a reason to make it!

Last night I went to my sister’s house for Easter dinner.  I brought this.

Half inspired by the Rainbow cake, half inspired by this photo I found on Pinterest:

(thank you, Martha)

I followed the Rainbow Cake instructions, and made 6 little cakes (2 bit the dust).

(pretty pastel cake batter)

I stacked ’em all up and hoped for the best.

It totally turned out!  Isn’t it beautiful?

Wanna make it?  Check out Meredith’s recipe here.  Because not only was it pretty, but it was delicious, too!

Happy Easter to you.

a photo from Easters past

Linking up again with Kim at Yellow Songbird!

Yes, folks, this little girl is me.  Clearly quite focused on decorating my Easter egg that I just made with Daddy.  There are so many things I love about this photo:  the very 80s (or, rather, remnants of 70s) wallpaper, the mother goose cookie jar in the background that my mom still has, my little death grip on the Easter egg, and my little belly poking out from under my sweater.

Happy Easter to you!

I said a hip, hop, a hippie, a hippie to the hip hip hop and you don’t stop

As I was trying to think of a clever post title – you know, a play on Easter words or something –  Rapper’s delight came into my head. Apparently, in my mind’s word association game, “hop” leads to “oldschool rap.”

Anywho…  I made Easter cupcakes (recipe here), complete with cupcake toppers!  This was my first venture in the cupcake topper world.  As I was making them, though, the hubby was confused.  He wanted to know why I would put “giant signs” (his words)  into the cupcakes.  He didn’t understand.  (He later understood when I showed him the finished product.  But that may or may not have had to do with the fact that he was eager to eat said product.)

There are so many cute printables out there for cupcake toppers, but I decided to make my own because I wanted the colours to match my cupcake liners (which were blue, pink and purple).  I went simple with it, but I think they turned out pretty cute.


Used a 1.5 inch circle punch to cut ’em out.

Then I punched out some plain ol’ white ones to glue to the back.

Cut some bamboo skewers in half and voila!

If you’d like, you can download the cupcake toppers here!  Linking up at Making it with Allie, Cheryl at Tidy Mom and Laura at Along for the Ride.

I have decided that every holiday should have cupcakes.  Don’t you think?

a bright and fun Easter printable

So it turns out I love playing around with Photoshop!  I am starting to think I might be able to cross that one off my list

I made one of these for Valentine’s, and I love how it looks on my mantel!  (Yes, I said looks – I haven’t yet taken it down from Valentine’s day… shame, I know.)

It’s formatted to fit a 5×7 frame, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t print it larger.  Last time I ordered it through a local photofinishing place and just made sure I asked for “no colour corrections,” as I wanted to keep the colours as I saw them on the screen!

You can download the printable here!
