One was an awesome find at Target. Edible Easter grass! So fun! I found this idea on The Cake Blog. The grass was super easy to use. It comes in long strips so I used my kitchen shears to snip it into smaller pieces. Fast and such a fun whimsical look.
I really didn't want an entire cake covered in the grass so I decided to use part of this idea I found on Family Holiday.net. Now truth be told, I would have loved to have done this entire cake but again there wasn't time.
So I combined the bottom idea of one cake and the top of another and voila, my Easter masterpiece. When my 4 year-old saw this he said it was "so awesome!" He was pretty excited to eat a 4 layer cake!
How did I make it you might ask? I bought 2 boxes of cake mix, 2 containers of chocolate frosting, edible Easter grass and raspberry jam. I used a chocolate fudge and white cake mix and alternated the layers putting the raspberry jam on top of the white cake layer. This was fast, easy and made a statement. I almost felt guilty that I hadn't spent more time on it!
This is what I am about. Finding the time consuming ideas and making them easy for the every day mom. Go grab some grass at Target and get ready to have some fun!
