Ben wanted to make Easter basket cupcakes. I used this excellent recipe and iced them with Italian meringue. The kids did the rest, although the Twizzler handles did not cooperate in an upright manner.
I glued together an artsy little nest out of twigs Genevieve scavenged out of the back yard and used some pale washes of commercial dye on brown eggs to make a centerpiece. I rarely have centerpieces, just candles, but I was pleased to have time to play like this on Easter morning before church. The whole thing was eminently simple and I love how it came out. Next year, I really want to use onion skins and whatnot to dye eggs.
