Celebration

After attending church and children taking naps we celebrated...

For "Ree Ree's" 25th birthday, she requested the bunny cake from her childhood...go figure!
I haven't made THE "bunny" cake in...oh...about 20 years! It took a LOT of icing to hold that silly rabbit together. My Mom tinted the coconut for the grass! I thought the cake was rather cute...til a couple of boys put jelly beans everywhere. One would have to get very creative indeed to top CurlyWurlyGurly's Easter Repast ...I shall say no more, you have to see that for yourself, in addition the "Curly Gurl" painted some lovely eggs and Curly invited the s.l.o.b.s. poolside for some Florida fun! Thanks CWG!!!

I painstakingly decorated the Easter Egg Tree...several grandchildren whom shall remain nameless have redecorated it several times...much to my OCD chagrin...oh well, at least it was fun!

Michelle, Heather and Lindsey before the blowing out of the "trick" sparkler candles

P.S. Lindsey is expecting Baby # 3 in September!


Ree Ree gets a little help from the boys! The trick candles did not re-light as often as I hoped for...however did sparkle and crackle quite nicely. After dinner and cake eating...on to the eggstravaganza...Good Times for All!






Many eggs were found filled with candy, toys and dollar bills! Hunter always gives his dollar to MiMi...(great grandma)

i lurve your bunny cake!! what kind of cake is it--yellow, white? and the icing flavor? how about the recipe and instructions?

i blazed through sc last night and thought of you. i spent the night in lumberton, nc...a charming little town. my mom didn't want me driving the whole way in one shot. flat dishy and flat connie were singing for most of the ride--it got a bit annoying. hahahah. xoxoxox

ps. no one really ate the resurrection burger--i think we were all too afraid we'd choke to death.

Sounds like a a good time was had by all. The little ones add a certain something that no one else can. And that bunny cake looks pretty yummy too.

I too adore the bun-cake!
Looks like the egg hunt was fun. (a lot funner than mine anyway)

Connie said...

hmm...let me think how to best describe the un recipe and directions for the cake...stay tuned!

@CWG, if Flat Connie was singing...I'm just sorry you had to endure that LOL

This particular cake was yellow with cream cheese icing and coconut. Very tasty indeed

Wow, that cake is really something. I of course could never try something like that. It would look like a coyote had gotten ahold of it if I tried. On the other hand, I raised boys so they'd probably get a kick out of that - Roadkill Bunny Cake. But I digress - looks like you all had fun. And you have GRANDKIDS! I'm jealous. But my prospects are improving...

Connie said...

@Rosezilla, I had to change shirts b/c I was covered in icing! I am sure there was an easier way to "create" the bunny...there is probably some kind of mold or something...this was the one my daughter remembered!

OOoh I LOVE the Bunny Cake!! Wish a had a big hunk to gobble down right now - especially since I've plowed through the edible Easter candy here. You have the most beautiful family Connie - and you're always having the best time. I miss my family ---- WHEN ARE THEY COMING TO MAINE??!! Love ya! xo
