Hoppy Easter

I LOVE Williams-Sonoma, really, I DO! I can't afford most of their stuff but I love to drool. What’s this got to do with Easter, you ask?

I got an email notice from Williams-Sonoma a few weeks ago and this carrot cake was the highlight.

I thought, "how stinkin' CUTE that is!" And doesn’t it look YUMMY??? Until I saw the price ;-)

I didn’t have time to make a cake so I picked one up at the bakery for our Easter weekend. And to make mine special, I
stamped, colored, and cut out the adorable set from MFT, Claire Keay – Funny Bunny, glued a couple of toothpicks to the back, and used him to decorate the cake :)

OK, so it doesn't have rolled fondant. But it *is* yummy and it didn’t cost an arm and a leg ;-) 

To celebrate Spring and Easter, I thought I’d show you what it’s looking like around here this weekend.
