A really sweet Easter …

We made an Easter cake in class this week … it’s a chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream, covered in chocolate flavoured icing, topped with a chocolate Easter egg covered in chocolate icing, filled with chocolate mini-eggs! Death by chocolate! But what a way to go!


Great fun to make – and the smell of all that chocolate was delicious!

Everything was edible, the ribbon, the bow and even the little primroses…

And, as it was our last cake class before Easter, I made little Easter gifts for each of the girls in my class.

I started by making some punch art bunnies …

Then added some sweeties – no chocolates as there was enough of that on the cakes!

Instead I added a few boiled sweeties wrapped it pastel coloured papers …

with punch art bunnies to top each one, and designer series paper for colour on each

whisper white bunny.

They looked so cute as a little bunch of bunnies!

All papercraft supplies from Stampin’ Up!

Card recipe: cardstock: chocolate chip, whisper white, certainly celery; punches: scallop circle, large oval, small oval, 1/2″ circle; inks: chocolate chip; accessories: soft subtles designer series paper, chocolate chip stampin write marker pen, crop-a-dile, sentiment stamp (retired).

Punch art bunnies for a Happy Easter …

Look what we made in cake class for Easter … how cute!

The chocolate icing tastes like pure chocolate, and the smell is just delicious!  You can imagine what the classroom was like – now I know what the children who entered the Willy Wonka factory experienced!


I can’t wait to make some more bunnies – I just love this cake decorating! 

I saw the cutest punch art bunny on Pinterest recently and followed the tutorial to make bunnies for some Easter cards.  I was too late to enter the colour challenge over on the ColourQ website, but I just loved the colours for last week’s challenge – all bright and beautiful and so perfect for Easter! 

I added another colour – pumpkin pie – and made a card from coloured cardstock…

… and some more with polka dot designer series paper…

So no stamping this time, just a little sponging, paper piecing and loads of fun making them …

And I did resist the temptation to put “Hoppy Easter”… which is really good for me!
