Easter Bunnies

March 31st 2013

I found a lovely knitted bunny tutorial pinned all over pinterest.The bunny is made from one square of knitting.

So I thought I’d have a go myself for Easter. I made it with some fat wool and big needles so I ended up with this fluffy, chubby bunny. I also decided he could do with a face and used some black embroidery thread and some pink buttons for the inside of the ears.

Also since this is a bunny post I thought I’d add this knitted cutie I made for my niece when she was born almost 2 years ago. I found the pattern on the Rowan Wool website. They have lots of lovely things to make with their wool.

Easter Cakes

March 31st 2013

I love the little fluffy easter chicks you can buy at this time of year. So I had to make some easter cakes. I decided to mix the traditional chocolate nest (chocolate covered cereal, mini eggs and chick) with a vanilla cupcake. So a yummy cupcake with a little nest on top. My friend was over so we made these cakes together and she told me that you can actually melt a bar of dairy milk to cover crispy cakes without having to add any butter or syrup. So we tried it and she was right. It melts perfectly in a glass bowl resting in simmering water, provided you keep an eye on it and keep stirring. A lovely simple way to make some easter treats.

This cake I made a couple of years ago at easter. I made an Easter yellow runny butter icing and found some teeny chocolate chips which made cute little nests for the mini eggs to sit in.
