Easy DIY For Easter
Bunnies, egg hunts, sweet treats...no wonder Easter is fun for kids—and the kid in all of us.
Spend time connecting with yourself, reflecting on new beginnings and creating new memories. Whether you’re on your own or gathering with friends and family, there are so many ways to celebrate the season—starting with our classic Carrot Cake recipe.
It’s one of our favorite traditions...and it’s sure to become one of yours, too, especially with our tips for creating these adorable decorations for the perfect Easter cake.
Create your own field of green using some store-bought green fondant.
- Break the fondant into small pieces and place it in your Garlic Press.
- Voila! Some green grass to top your cake.
Gather 6 or 7 medium strawberries, 75g of white chocolate, a few drops of orange food coloring and some edible orange glitter.
- Break the white chocolate into pieces and place it in the MicroCook Pitcher 1L, cover, and microwave for 1 min. 15 sec. at 360 watts. Allow standing for 1 min. Mix using the Silicone Spatula and, if chocolate is not completely melted, microwave again for 30 sec. Add a few drops of orange food coloring and mix well.
- Wash and dry strawberries and make sure to keep the green tops intact.
- Carefully dip them into the melted chocolate. Sprinkle with edible glitter.
- Place them on the Silicone Baking Sheet and allow them to cool.
- Place the grass on the cake and arrange the carrots on top. How cute and easy is that?
