|Our Wisteria had lovely blooms on it for about 2 weeks.|
I've been so busy with the monkeys this year (between school, birthdays, activities, holidays), that I realized I completely forgot to blog about Easter. The first Easter we got to host for our family! Easter in our family involves all of the cousins (9 kiddos in all) and it's a sugar-fueled day of fun.
Adding into the fun, was the fact that the day after Easter was the hubby's birthday, and the day after that was my nephew James' 7th birthday. So, on top of doing an Easter dessert, I needed to do something that could also double as a birthday cake. I had seen a couple of people do Peeps cakes on Pinterest, so I took that idea and ran with it.
Dulce de Leche buttercream frosting from Bakers Royale.
Once the cake was frosted I added my Peeps to the sides of the cake and topped the whole thing off with a bag of Easter colored M&Ms. Completely over the top and loaded with sugar, but so much fun. And check out the adorable Happy Birthday candles I found at Target......perfect for having the two guys blowing out the candles!
But it's the inside of the cake that surprises everyone.......
