Easter's On It's Way !
I also love to make carrot cake during the holidays. Easter bunnies LOVE carrots :) Be sure to try out the Carrot Cake recipe referenced here on Lemon Drop. You will fall in love with this sweet, moist cake topped with a thick and rich cream cheese frosting. For me, the icing is as important as the cake where a carrot cake is concerned and this recipe never fails to impress!
If you haven't played with candy melts yet then why not try your hand at them now? The idea of chocolate candy cups filled with chocolate mousse sounds ideal. Finish them off with tinted coconut (green for grass of course) and chocolate Easter eggs for a fun and sweet treat. Hmmm, I may just have to make these myself now too!
And of course, Good Friday and Hot Cross Buns go hand in hand. I am still on the hunt for a good recipe. I made some last year and they had the texture of hockey pucks. Perhaps I over-kneaded the dough; not sure what went wrong. In the end they had a nasty meeting with Mr. Trash Can.
But I will not give up ! I will continue on with my search and hopefully you will see the results here on Lemon Drop if all goes well this time around.
