Happy Easter!  It was so great to share a wonderful Easter dinner with Kathryn and her family today.  My husband made an incredible meal, the cousins have been having a great time playing, and my sis and I have been catching up on our laughing quotas!

The “chicky snacks” tradition is alive and well this year.  What would Easter be without these darling cake pops (and cake balls)?  This year I tried something new.  Instead of picking out the yellow and orange mini chips for the wings and nose, I made them with royal icing instead.  And I also used royal icing for the feet instead of flower sprinkles.  It involved one less trip to the cake store.  ­čÖé

I’m a little obsessed with these egg dishes and I’ve been collecting them the past few years.  I thought they would be fun at the place setting instead of salad plates.  Why not give your guests some treats to nibble on before during and after their meal?  I also thought these egg dishes would be perfect as an appetizer sampler plate.  They could easily hold a stuffed mushroom, BLT bite, stuffed jalapeno, a deviled egg and cheeses.  So that’s my plan for next year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday!
