THE EASTER CAKE
“Easter is a month away! I love all of the pretty spring colors and gorgeous desserts to go along with the season. It has been a while since I’ve decorated a cake, so I decided to make an Easter cake. I think the last cake I made was for my sister’s wedding and making that cake (as well as the various practice versions) was enough to last me a while. I decorated this spring layer cake with rustic ruffles like I did when I made the wedding cake. They are super easy to make in this light, airy vanilla bean frosting!” Please visit the gunny sack for the full recipe.
Now most of us absolutely love oreos and truffles are absolutely to die for! What do you think about combining the two into one amazing dessert! Sounds great but complicated right? Well its not thanks to this fabulous oh so easy recipe.
“4-Ingredient Easter Egg Oreo Truffles
But I’m so excited to share with you how to make these adorable Easter Egg Oreo Truffles! As the title points out, they only require 4 ingredients. And the base truffle recipe couldn’t be easier. The hardest part is just figuring how how to decorate them!
We actually couldn’t decide whether to go the classy brown/white route with regular chocolate Oreos, or make a white/pastel batch with golden Oreos. So of course, we did both. And I got a little photo-happy, so I’ll be sharing the more colorful batch in a post tomorrow. But for anyone who loves Oreos and decorating Easter Eggs, this is one recipe you’ve gotta try. Here’s the how-to!”
This next one is really going to rock you !

It’s hard to believe Easter is just around the corner. This year is going too fast for me to keep up! I swear it felt like yesterday that I was laughing at how quickly the Easter displays went up to replace the Christmas stuff at the beginning of the year, it has managed to creep up on me. My days are getting busier and busier, so I am easily drawn to the simpler, quicker desserts that I can pull together at the last minute. This recipe could not be any easier; there’s no baking involved and it takes hardly any time to create these cute Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs with a ‘yolk’ made of passionfruit sauce.
