Besides cleaning and decorating for Easter this week,
I have been making food. I always make no bake cookies in the shape of nests,
which I will show you later.
And I baked two hams today.
Easy Peasy Green Bean Casserole tomorrow.
For my Five on Friday I thought I'd share with you the cake I made.
I'm joining FAST blog with Five on Friday so here we go...
Let's talk cake.
This year I decided I was going to make a cake.
And I was going to make it in three different colors.
I saw this on Pinterest.
And one evening earlier this week I decided I would bake the cakes.
And I forgot I was going to color the layers, until I sat down my computer and looked at the cakes on the counter top.....DOH!
I put the three cakes in the freezer because I made them earlier in the week.
The fourth one,
I hatched a Plan B.
A couple of nights ago I started melting colored white chocolate
and using cookie cutters to make Eastery/springy shapes.
THREEToday I got the cake out of the freezer and used a recipe from Martha Stewart's cake book for the icing. I also used a recipe from her cake book for the vanilla cake. I tinted the icing green.
FOUR!Then I started with the biggest flowers and pressed them into the icing.
I did it with the smaller flowers and bunnies and such.
Then I decided to add some grass. So I melted some green white chocolate, and before it completely hardened, I took a steak knife and made blades.
I think it turned out pretty cute!
These will go on in the morning.
I put the cake in the fridge for the night.
I don't know if you can see the recipes or not in these pictures.
They came from this book.
