Happy Easter to all those who celebrate!
This has truly been one of my busiest Easters yet! It seemed I have been so far behind. My house did get cleaned before my daughter and her children came up Thursday. My husband, daughter and I sing in our church choir, so we have spent a lot of time in church recently.
Did lots of cooking. Saturday night we celebrated Easter with my son, his girlfriend, and her daughter. We had prime rib and crab legs, along with asparagus, salad and baked potatoes. For dessert, I made a tres leches cake from the Cake Love book, and my daughter made the Italian Meringue Buttercream frosting. We mixed heath bar bits in the frosting, then sprinkled some on top. I also made a heath bar cheesecake and a plain cheesecake.
This morning for brunch, we had ham, fruit salad, hashbrown casserole and greenbean casserole.
I made our traditional easter Lamb cake, but it looked like it was going to fall over, I couldn't figure out why it looked so tipsy, but my daughter came up with the answer. The cake I made did not rise as much as the ones I have made in the past, making the back half of the lamb slightly smaller than the front. The difference was just enough to tip the cake, since the back did not have enough support. Did not take pictures, wish I had!
This week I am going to make the cookies I never finished, and hopefully have some time to start to practice my cookie bouquets.
