Easy Cake Mix Easter Bunny Cake Recipe

easy easter bunny cake

My Brother in Law, Jeff, made this Easter Bunny Cake last Easter and it was such a hit with the kids, they asked for it at their birthday’s!  His Mom has made this for him every Easter since he was little. This is a SUPER easy cake made with a cake mix and tub of frosting!  You can even take the coconut and dye it green to make grass.

Bunny Bait Easter Treats!

I needed something for the neighbors for Easter. Bunny Bait seemed just the right thing! Basically, you are taking “Funfetti” popcorn and making it pastel for Easter. Package it into cute bags and make a “Bunny Bait” tag and you are set!

The ingredients are something that you probably already have, pretzels, popcorn ( I just used the air popper, you can use microwave) rice Chex, M&M’s, sprinkles and white chocolate.

I also used some Avery 2×2 labels that I had already, they are number 22816.

I doubled the recipe and was able to get 50 bags out of it! The kids all have enough to hand out to teacher and the neighbors for Easter. This is such an easy, cute and yummy treat!

Bunny Bread

Easter Bunny Bread

How cute is this Bunny Bread? I mean really? How stink in’ cute did this turn out?!

You NEED to make this for Easter. Because I don’t know how I have not made it and survived the past 38 Easters! :) Before you get scared… It was REALLY easy as well!

Bunny Bread Recipe ingredients

The key to making this easy is the frozen bread loaves. You can get any store brand you like or I use Rhodes brand as well. Don’t forget this in your car on a hot day… not that I have done that :) You will have a big mess on your hands when the bag explodes!

bunny bread dough

Take your dough out of the freezer and let it rise on a cookie sheet covered for about an hour or until it is not completely solid frozen, but not all the way unthawed.

Then you are going to want to cut your shapes and make your bunny. I explained how in the directions below.

Once you have your bunny formed, cover him with plastic wrap and let him unthaw a little more. Make sure to do the egg wash on him as that is what makes him all nice and pretty golden brown!

 

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

If you have not tried a no-churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream recipe before, or any no churn recipe before you are missing out BIG TIME!

Those of you where it is still snowing, we are hitting 80 and you will not be jealous this August! We ail be 118 and you will be a nice 80. It just means we started making ice cream already :)

Blueberry Cheesecake Ingredients

 

If you do NOT have an ice cream machine, don’t stress, you don’t need one with this method!

Cook blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice and salt over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, ensuring berries crush and release juice. Allow to boil until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely then chill in refrigerator for about 1 hour.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy and smooth. Using a electric whisk, add condensed milk and vanilla, whisking until smooth Add in vanilla extract and heavy cream. Whisk on high speed until soft peaks form. Spread half of this mixture into a loaf pan. Spoon chilled blueberry sauce over the whipped mixture. Top with remaining cream mixture, spreading evenly.

Using a knife, drag or swirl the blueberry mixture into the cream mixture.

Now you let it freeze and scoop out like you would any other ice cream!

Cinnamon Biscuit Balls

Cinnamon Biscuit Balls

These are called a lot of different things, from Cinnamon Biscuit Balls, to Cinnamon Biscuit Bites, to Refrigerator Donuts. No matter what you call them, they are super easy and a lot of fun to make. Not to mention, completely DELICIOUS!

Pizza Roll Cinnamon BitesI am also guessing you have everything on hand already. If not, maybe your neighbor does, because you should make some of these tonight!

I have the kids do everything but the oil part, obviously. These just take minutes to make and I have used all kinds of refrigerator biscuit that I have in the fridge. You could also use powdered sugar and not cinnamon & sugar if you want. Have fun!

 

Meatloaf Cupcakes an April Fools Favorite!

April fools - meatloaf cupcakes

April 1st is the greatest “holiday” ever celebrated by twisted parents! My parents have had their fair share of tormenting me as a child and teenager,  so I figure it is time to start with my own children. There is nothing better than coming home from school to yummy cupcakes waiting for you.

Especially when your Mom and Dad tell you that in honor of April Fools Day we will be having dessert first!

They have the COOLEST parents EVER!!! :)

Well… for 3 min. you have the coolest parents in the world! Until you bite in a realize it isn’t chocolate cake and frosting but mashed potatoes and meatloaf!

Oh yea, and the fruit punch is really jello. It only looks like it is drinkable!

Do you have any good April Fools pranks or jokes you have played on your kids??

For the “cupcakes”:

Make your regular meatloaf, bake it in cupcake tins. I drained the grease off when they were done and put them in foil cupcake holders. Then I made mashed potatoes and divided them into 3 bowls. I added food color to make them look like frosting. Then with a frosting bag “decorated” the tops of the meatloaf. I think the “display” part is the key! My kids really thought they were yummy cupcakes!

For the “fruit punch”:

Just get clear plastic cups and make your favorite jello. Put in a straw when liquid and let them set up in the fridge.  Again, until they went to drink them they thought they were real drinks! It was funny!

Dessert Burgers {For April Fools or Parties!}

dessert burgers with vanilla wafers

I used to make these Dessert Burgers when my oldest was little. In fact, we had them on several birthday parties and different events. This year on April Fools day I think we will be making them for the kids alone with my Meatloaf Cupcakes.

Most likely you will be able to find everything at your Walmart or grocery store. I usually have Nutella on hand and so most of the time I use that.

Do drops of frosting for the ketchup and mustard so that when you press the “bun” on it looks like you have ketchup and mustard! These are pretty easy to store, I keep them in the fridge to the are “harder” when transporting. These are great for the kids to take to school!
