I love holidays! Not just because it means I get time off work, but, because it’s an excuse to theme my baked goods. I have made two different lots of Easter goodies this year. I have been wanting to attempt “flooding” biscuits for a while now and was inspired to after seeing this.
The recipe for the shortbread biscuit is there as well as the icing. I used the shortbread recipe found in the good old Edmonds cookbook as I am familiar with it and know that it works for me. To cut the cookies I used an Easter Egg shaped cookie cutter I already had. Finally, to pipe I used a Kuhn Rikon Deco icing set I got from Living and Giving.
My second lot of baking was a batch of cupcakes to take to a family gathering for Easter Sunday. I used my ‘Easy Peasy Chocolate Cake’ recipe from an earlier post and put the mixture into the gorgeous cupcake papers Melissa got me for Christmas.
To ice I used a simple butter cream recipe and added pink colouring, and a Wilton 1M tip in a large disposable icing bag to get that pattern.
But they still looked like they were missing something…
I made the chocolate bunnies by melting some chocolate buttons and placing it in a mould I picked up at Spotlight.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
