This is just such a great idea – and can be made small for personal servings or large to accommodate holding eggs or other special breads to serve with your Easter dinner…. and not as hard as you believe.
Start by covering a oven safe bowl with two layers of foil. With dough rolled out and cut into strips you will make a basket as shown on the outside of the bowl. Place a braided row at the top. Make an additional braided row for the handle. Bake following instruction for your bread recipe allowing some room to give and take.
You can cook regularly or wash the outside of basket with egg wash to give a deep golden color.
What a great concept to do for a newborn. Make sure to use a bigger email service like gmail etc. Send them tid0bits, photos, letters from you or family, stories of things that happen to them – give out the email address to Grandmother/Father, Aunts/Uncles, and others that play an integral part of their lives. On their eighteenth birthday they will have such a special time going back and reminiscing about all the special people and events they have gone had in their lives already!
One a side note: Some email services require you to log on every so often to make sure the account is still active. Make sure to log on to the account at least once a month to avoid a problem.
Make two same size circle cake pans and once cool freehand cut 9as shown in pattern in our picture above) just one of these cakes. This cake makes the ears and box tie and the whole cake makes the head.
Be creative and decorate to make look like a boy or girl Easter bunny – I am sure you will get more than one smile from this really cool idea!
These are made from raw dinner roll dough that can be purchased frozen or made from scratch. Kneed into a dome shape and snip two ears with scissors as shown in our picture above. Poke two holes for eyes and a hole for the nose with tip of shape knife. Coat with egg wash and bake. Make sure to get egg coating around ears and into eye and nose sockets – this prevents them from filling in as the dough rises.
Creative and perfect for Easter – or anytime you want to make a child smile at the dinner table.
I am always on the lookout for great decorations and I actually love it when I come across a decoration that I can make that looks great and has potential for making a few relatively cheap that i can make as gifts. This is one of them.
Starting with a foam base, plastic eggs 9plain or with designs to fit your decor (or the recipients) and Easter grass (pictured we used crumpled paper shreddings (make yourself with your office shredder or sometimes you can get these at the dollar store). You will also need a glue like E-6000 (and we used bobby pins to help make them quicker). Hot glue will give you lots of problems with this craft as it does not like styrofoam at all.
Start at base and glue layers of eggs then grass (we put two small holes about a 1/4 apart and insert bobby pinued through these – and then glued before pushing onto styrofaom – this eliminates the need to hold until glue grips well).
This can be made for a permanent decoration or if giving to a recipient each egg could hold a surprise – although who would want to open something so nice.
