We gathered together to enjoy a wonderful Easter Weekend, RI Branch arrived on Saturday and helped prepare for the Easter Sunday Repast.  We started with making a “Bunny Cake”.  Connor-boy the youngest Grandson helped with the decorations!

The Bunny’s ears are filled with Lifesaver Jelly Beans, the eyes were wrapped Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Eggs, and one used for his nose and his mouth was filled with Chocolate covered blueberries!  Whiskers were pastel colored jimmies and the whole bunny was sprinkled with Lavender Crystal Sprinkles.

Next up was Chocolate Flower Pot Cupcakes that each of us decorated with grass and flowers!
