Painting of rabbits painting an oversized egg

Today is Easter Sunday! Save any plastic Easter eggs that your family may acquire today, because we will use them in other projects throughout the year. This is a fun week with lots to look forward to.

Monday-Thursday prompts don’t require any preparation, so I’ll let those be a surprise.

On Friday I will show some graham cracker houses for Easter Peeps. If you think you will have leftover Peeps, see if you can scare up some graham crackers and some icing in a tube, because those will come in handy.

On Saturday we’ll be talking about carrot cakes and I will have a link to a carrot cake recipe. So, for your grocery list this week you could either pick up a boxed carrot cake mix and pre-made cream cheese frosting, or if you want to make from scratch, you’ll need to have about 5 carrots, 4 eggs, vegetable oil, and the usual baking ingredients you normally find in cakes (flour, baking powder, etc.) The frosting will require 8 oz of cream cheese, a stick of butter, and 4 cups powdered sugar. Optional, but recommended, additions for the cake include 8 oz crushed pineapple, raisins, sweetened flaked coconut, and walnuts.

I wish you and your family the most delightful of Easter Sundays.

Have a great week.
