Looking for a quick Easter project at home? Two round cakes, some white icing, and voila! You can bake your own Easter Bunny cake at home. This has become an Easter tradition in our home; the kids love seeing the two circles turn into a bunny! Pro tip: we add coconut to our icing to make it look more like fur.
And don’t forget all the awesome Easter crafts in the Egg-Cellent Easter Blog Hop from my fellow East Coast Mom Media bloggers. Lots of local fun and great sites to follow!
