An Eggs cellent Easter! And the winner is...

Podso is the winner of the years subscription to Taste of Home! Podso, you have a no reply blogger email addy, so please email me your snail mail address. The deal ends Monday night.

I hope everyone who celebrated Easter had a good one. We celebrated at my dil's sister's house. The weather here on Long Island was perfect, and the Easter egg hunt went off without a hitch!

Let's Dish 245

Let's Dish 244

I was a guest, but filled 120 eggs for the hunt, and goodie bags for the kids. Let's Dish 216 We also did a Guess the # of Jelly Beans Contest.

There were 17 adults and 10 kids.  The hostess did a wonderful job with the seating and setting.

Let's Dish 248

I made a whipped cream egg cake, cherry and whipped cream filling. I tinted the layers, pink and green, but didn't get a pic when it was cut. It did look pretty! Let's Dish 215 The traditional chocolate cake eggs dipped in chocolate. Let's Dish 223

I put the jelly beans on when we got there as they run into the whipped cream!

Let's Dish 226The little bristle bunny is from WSonoma Outlet.  I picked up a few bargains there Friday, he was 2 and change from 19.95

I will show you the other things I got in my next post.

Let's Dish 229 

I had some extra chocolate batter and whipped cream left, so I made a few cupcakes, cut out the center, filled it with cream, and then dipped them in chocolate.  A few swirls of whipped cream.  It's Easter, you get to eat chocolate for breakfast!  :)

Let's Dish 228

Dig in, I'll pour the milk!

Hope your holiday was happy! 

Don't forget Wednesday night at 7 for Let's Dish, meeting 4!

I think I got to everyone, if I didn't I will!

I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday.

  17. Looks like a perfect day! I haven't been to an egg hunt since I retired, but I think egg hunts are a great fun. Who found the golden egg?
    It was a perfect day and evening here as well. We had dinner on the terrace and were back out this morning for breakfast. This is my favorite time of year for dining alfresco.
    Have a good week.........Sarah

  21. Just love you, beautiful lady..We seem to be cut from the same cake mold
    ...I also was a guest, but did the centerpiece and Lamb cake in coconut for our gracious hostess. Never did find out how to be a complete guest. I ordered your swirl pan and managed to snag a six opening pineapple form
    pan as well....but never at your stunning prices...like that bristle
    bunny.....still learning.

  25. It all looks wonderful to me. We had a big crowd, but NOTHING like the crowd at your Easter. The larger cake and those little chocolate egg cakes both look delicious.

    And I got your wonderful card and gift in the mail this weekend! THANK YOU again, and I'll be sure to yak all about how I use it.

    Happy Easter!

  26. Kathleen, that's my kind of breakfast. My mouth is watering. Your cake is beautiful, but I do wish you had thought to take a photo when it was cut. I bet it was amazing! Looks like a fun Easter hunt. The weather was great here too. laurie

  27. Wow...great photos of the Easter egg hunt. And what good weather you had. The cake looks beautiful, but being a chocoholic, the chocolate eggs and the breakfast cupcake, which apparently you just "whipped up" look marvelous and something that would take me hours to accomplish. Looks like a good day. Thanks again for the magazine subscription ... I really can hardly take in that I was chosen!

  32. Pretty tablescape in your header, Kathleen!
    Looks like you had a fun filled Easter...loved seeing your pretty egg shaped cake (do you have a special pan or did you trim it that shape?) as well as those yummy looking chocolate treats. You always do such a nice job!
    I can't even imagine trying to feel 27 people!!!!!! Yikes!!! I hope they ALL helped with clean-up.

    Hugs,

    1. I only did the cakes, an appy and glazed carrots and a fruit salad, so I had it easy. The hosts had a lot to do, and they have 2 little ones and work full time!

  41. It looked like a fun time for you and your family at Easter, Kathleen! This will be happy memories for all the children.

    We had a quiet holiday --went to chuch--went to brunch at a restaurant --and went home and rested. V & I have been working so hard at getting my Mom's house emptied that we were too exhausted to do much more. We are almost finished. Bless my Mom;s heart but she had a lot of stuff!
