Easter weekend is here! This holiday and this Spring season has really inspired me to try new things, especially in the kitchen. I'm finding that baking and cooking can really bring people together...my family now loves to work together in the kitchen and I'm happy that my kids have such an interest for helping to cook and bake. We've been making Easter treats all week... I love the soft, pastel colors of Easter. I wanted to try making pastel rainbow cupcakes with rainbow icing. They were so fun to make with the kids and look so pretty to eat! We also made rice Krispy treats, marshmallow pops and a rainbow Angel Food Cake. Maybe you can use some of these ideas for your Easter weekend, too!
Rainbow Party Food Ideas
See my article here for more rainbow food party ideas and instructions on how to make my version of rainbow cake and icing.
I used a coconut cake recipe instead of white cake and only used a few drops of food coloring. It's best to use white cake for rainbow cakes if you want more vibrant colors.
We had extra batter so we made an egg cake! When you cut into it, a rainbow is waiting!
We also made some marshmallow pops.
I love these soft colors.
Of course, we dyed some eggs, too. Lyla kept thinking dye as in "to die" so every time we put the egg in dye, she said, "The egg is dying!" It was cute but she said it in a sad voice.
We were trying to make ombre-colored eggs.
Coconut Cupcake Recipe
I found this delicious coconut cupcake recipe and had to try it! They turned out great!
Food is comforting...and so is making it together! I love that it is something my family can all take such an interest in and something that binds us closer.
What goodies have you been making this week?
