Happy Easter Cake
Ithought for Easter I would get a little cake creative. I made a yellow cake mix from scratch and ended up with this 13 x 9 start to the bunny and 7 round cakes ranging from 4inches to 8 inches! That was a lot of batter!! For this guy we mixed some food coloring with regular store bought icing to come up with the various colors, and with the great assistance of my 7 year old she proceeded to decorate with mom's help of course. I decided to make homemade vanilla pastry cream as a filling for my 7 other cakes! Cut up some fresh strawberries to add to the cream and layered them up, covered with fresh whipped cream!
I can eat the pastry cream all on its own...yum! I should invest in a dairy farm with all the eggs, milk, and butter I am going to be using!
