UPDATE! For those of you asking for a tutorial, I am so swamped I just cant squeeze it in before Easter... BUT... you can pretty much see what I do here and then improvise! As far as the chick eyes... I added those after I cut into the cake with black royal icing. If you have any questions along the way or need help, feel free to email me!
When Liz from Hoosier Homemade asked if I would participate in a Spring Blog Hop I said yes and then signed on to make my favorite sugar cookies and decorate them.
I totally did not do that.
Before I show you what I did make I just want to take a second and show you what the other participants have contributed so far
Total spring cuteness.
Oh! And not only is every participant making something cute, they are each having a giveaway! Score!
And be sure to check back because two more giveaways will still be announced on Tuesday and Wednesday!
You can still win all of these.. so get over there and leave a comment!
So what did I make instead of my favorite ever cookies?
An Easter Egg Cake.
Er, I guess I should clarify. A cake that I tried to make into the shape of an egg.
I just sectioned off four areas and decorated them each with royal icing or fondant.
But you know I cant make a cake without a surprise inside...
So I made a little chick hanging out in there.
My kids loved it and were so excited!
So you made it this far... would you like to know what I am going to giveaway for the Spring Blog Hop?
(although I feel slightly guilty after seeing all the other creative and thoughtful prizes... but I have a feeling you'll forgive me)
I am giving away cold, hard cash.
On April 6th I will have a random drawing and one of you lucky readers will win $60.
Sixty bucks! (it was going to be $50 but I was too lazy to get correct change for the picture)
Is that ok? Hope so.
To enter just leave a comment.
For one extra entry you can follow me on twitter. @manda2177 You can also get an extra entry if you already follow me on twitter. Thanks BTW!
So that is a total of TWO possible entries each. If you just decide you like this cake and want to tell me two times, only ONE comment will count towards winning the $60.
Make sure you leave a valid email address! I just might be picking an extra winner or two... and they just might be winning some baked goods. You guys like cakes and cupcakes and cookies right???
Happy Blog Hopping!
