Easter is right around the corner so it’s time to unpack your creativity and make some fun and easy Easter food! If you have read my blog in the past, you know how much I love my holiday themed baking pans. Easter is no exception. Here are some of my favorites.

This one is a silicone baking pan that makes adorable bunny tails and feet.

This one makes a fun bunny head that is great for a large group of cake lovers.

If you don’t have a pan like this, you can still make a bunny cake using two round cakes. Check out how easy it is!

Another favorite is this Baby Bunny Cakes Pan.

I made chocolate cake bunnies using this pan last Easter and one of my sisters-in-law tried to keep people from eating them so that she could take them all home. 🙂

Then there is this adorable Nordic Ware Spring Lamb 3-D Cake Mold.

I first learned about making this cake from Susan Branch. If you don’t follow her, you must start immediately. 🙂 She is a delightful artist and author who lives on Martha’s Vineyard and is a self-professed keeper of the “happy gene.” As someone who possesses the cynic gene, I enjoy reading about her whimsical creations. Spending any amount of time reading her blog or books will make you pretty sure that fairies and unicorns actually do exist. You’ve been warned. 🙂 Susan did a whole tutorial last Easter about how to make this sweet little lamb cake.

I decided this year to try making my own. Even though I think coconut adds an air of authenticity, I don’t like coconut. So I decided to decorate mine with piped icing and some iridescent sanding sugar. I learned from Susan that the key to keeping the ears or neck from breaking off is to place skewers in the neck and toothpicks in the ears before baking. Genius.

Mine did not turn out as well as I had hoped. It would probably fall under the category of those hilarious Pinterest fails.

I think I need to make a heavier, more sturdy cake. I made a simple white cake, and even using the skewers it was too soft. It began to nod off when I applied the icing. 🙂 So I’m going to try again for Easter.  But in the meantime, I’ll refer you to Susan’s cake for how this one SHOULD look. 🙂

You don’t have to make fancy cakes to join in the Easter baking fun. You can make cupcakes. They are so simple. Just bake them, ice them, and add some embellishments like these that you can purchase at the store. Instant festivity!

I LOVE these Easter Bunny Feet Icing Decorations.

Last year we used these to make bunny butt cupcakes for Easter lunch. 🙂

You can also easily make little bird nest cupcakes by using a decorative icing tip to pipe out thin lines of icing to look like a nest. Then add some jelly beans and you are good to go!

Piping icing can be tedious and messy using piping bags. Have you seen this stuff? Decorating Cake Icing. It comes in a can and includes four tips for piping the icing!

Another cute cupcake idea is to sprinkle iced cupcakes with coconut and embellish with chocolate bunnies and jelly beans.

And if cupcakes aren’t your thing, you can’t go wrong with cookies. Just grab a set of Easter cookie cutters, roll out your favorite cookie dough and decorate away!

If you don’t want to make cookies, you can order absolutely gorgeous cookies from places like Williams-Sonoma.

You can have Easter fun at breakfast too! These Bunny Fried Egg Mold Ring Frames make eating eggs an Easter treat.

Pancakes can be fun too. These molds from Williams-Sonoma are super cute.

And finally, if you don’t want to cook or bake anything at all, you have to try this one I found on Pinterest. These are the cutest little bunny cars using Peeps, Twinkies, some cookies, pretzels, and icing. I love Twinkies. Remember the Great Twinkie Famine a few years ago when panic took hold ’round the world? Let’s hope that never happens again. We need them to make these Easter treats. Kids would love these. And I made them in no time at all.

And of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without festive plates to serve everything on. The only thing I might love more than seasonal baking pans are my seasonal plates. Like these Damask Easter Bunny Salad Plates. I just think these are so cute. You can almost feel how soft those bunnies are. 🙂
