Earth Cake filled with Candy Rocks and more Fun Food Ideas for Earth Day

Earth Cake filled with Candy Rocks

Earth Day kind of crept up on me this year, partly because Easter and Earth Day are only two days apart, but mostly because it took so long for spring to arrive, that it just doesn't feel like it could possibly be the end of April already. 

A few weeks ago, I did make a replica of our planet out of cake for my gig over at Tablespoon.com. To make my cake a bit different than all the other Earth cakes out there, I hid chocolate rocks inside.

I also came up with a very clever method of easily frosting a spherical cake to make it look perfectly round. I'm excited to try another cake using this method.

Hollow 3-D Crescent Roll Easter Eggs filled with Scrambled Eggs



Do you ever wake up from a peaceful nights sleep with an idea that just can't wait? It's been a while since that happened to me, but it did last night. 

I've had Wilton's Non-Stick Mini Decorated Egg Pan sitting on my counter for a few weeks, knew exactly what I was going to make, but had not found the time. When my dream interrupted my sleep, visions of these Hollow 3-D Crescent Roll Easter Eggs filled my mind. Knowing this idea was much more clever than my original, my excitement kept me from going back to sleep. I figured it was best just to get out of bed and give them a try.

Zombie Easter Bunny Cake for Tablespoon.com


I have to admit that when the gang at Tablespoon.com asked me to create a zombie bunny cake, I was beyond surprised. Turning a chocolate Easter bunny into a zombie had never crossed my mind, even though I'm a huge Halloween nut. I even had a house full of zombies for our party two years ago and know zombies have become even more popular than ever. 

I suppose I was the perfect person to create this cake. It was actually fun to make. It was unlike any other cake I've ever made. I tried to be a tad gory without making it too gross.

Cookie Kids in Pink Bunny Pajamas

Pink Bunny Pajamas Cookies

A friend hung out with me yesterday while I made Easter chocolates, and she saw one of these Cookie Kids in Pink Bunny Pajamas sitting on a baking sheet and commented on how much she loved it. I reacted in a way that only a blogger who totally forgot to create a post about a project would. I scolded myself. 

She thought I was upset about how my cookies looked and she started comforting me, telling me all the wonderful things about the cookies. It was so sweet.  

I explained to her, that I couldn't believe I actually forgot to write a post about the cookies. I love them too. They are my favorite edible craft of this Easter season.

Easter Bunny Pretzel Pops


I'm hoppin' around my kitchen this week making all sorts of Easter chocolates for my customers but just had to take the time to share these cute Easter Bunny Pretzel Pops with you. I have a few minutes, so this is going to be a quick post. 

I don't often talk about where I shop for the supplies and ingredients that I use for my blog posts, but I wanted to let you know that I found the cute bunny pail, the sweet carrot icing decorations, bags of Jordan Almonds, and white Hershey-ets all at Target.

Fuzzy Rice Krispies Treat Chick Pops

Easter Rice Krispies Treat Chick Pops

It's hard for me to decide which is cuter, a bunny, a lamb, or a chick. Do you have a favorite?

All I know is that I love making treats at Easter because everything is so cheerful. 

I can't help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I see these Rice Krispies Treat Chick Pops. They may not be quite as adorable as a tiny little fluffy baby chick but are pretty sweet looking, nontheless.

Rice Krispies Treat Chicks

Each of these candy coated rice krispie treats is covered in colored coconut then decorated with some candy eyes and orange candy coating. I am aware of the great number of coconut haters out there, and I have you covered.

Homemade Marshmallow Easter Chicks for Tablespoon.com


If you have never made or even tasted a homemade marshmallow, you really must. I'm a huge fan of Peeps and even enjoy eating the conical marshmallows out of a bag, but those really don't compare to a fresh batch  of the billowy soft candy made in your own kitchen. 

Plus, when you make your own marshmallows you can color and flavor them as you like and even cut them into fun shapes. When I made this batch of candy, I had so many Easter cookies cutters I could have used, but decided on a plain egg, knowing I could turn that simple shape into a really cute chick. 


You can find the recipe and step-by-step tutorial to make these Homemade Marshmallow Chicks on Tablespoon.com.
