Hoppy Easter.

My mom’s Easter tree this year!

Again, this year, I had no idea what I was going to make. That’s been a common theme. I was lost as to what I was going to make for Valentine’s Day, then for St. Patrick’s Day, then again for Easter. It’s just been that kinda year I guess. I saw a million cute things but I hate repeating the same shit everyone else does.

But that’s basically what I ended up doing anyway. Pfft.

I made some simple vanilla-flavored cupcakes and topped them with vanilla frosting, then dipped them in chocolate sauce, then I added egg-shaped quins and white chocolate bunnies. Can’t get much easier than that, huh? THESE ARE NOT HI-HAT CUPCAKES. They’re just regular cupcakes dipped in chocolate. I used ‘The Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake’ from the Cupcake Project for this, and the chocolate sauce is one I’ve used before that hardens when it dries but doesn’t really harden to a crazy hard consistency. It just hardens enough to not be melty and messy. Deelish. The white chocolate bunnies are just white chocolate bars melted & poured into bunny molds. Very, very easy. The larger molds were more like the traditional chocolate Easter bunny, but they were too large for toppers so I just paired each cupcake with one.

By the way, I’ve started using salted butter in my confectioner’s sugar buttercream. I find it adds a nice touch, takes away some of the super-sweetness that you can get from a high-sugar buttercream. Just a lil’ tip from me to you.

So I hope you all have a Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Eostre, Happy Spring! There might be another Easter-y surprise thrown in sometime this weekend. Maybe. Maybe not. *wink*

    Happy Easter to you, as well. I love the bunny cupcakes and I wish I had one now! I have not been in the baking mood so for now all I can do is look wistfully at yours. Maybe that will change this weekend. Meanwhile, I thank you for the baking inspiration. Happy Spring!

    I’ve been there myself. I know how it is. And usually, when I force myself to bake something, it comes out terrible. So I don’t do that anymore… I just make something else- I can up some jam or pickles, or I make a big batch of macaroni & cheese in a different way, etc. And then the baking bug comes back 😉 Happy Spring!

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your website.

    It looks like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them as well? This could be a problem
    with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thanks
