Easter is a fun time of year to celebrate with food and family
One cake mix makes 2 bunny cakes.
I made one out of coconut and the other out of marshmallow,
since not everyone likes coconut as much as I do.
This was super easy and fun to make!

1st…Make the cake mixes following the direction on the back of the box (I usually substitute apple sauce for oil)
2nd…Grease and flour 2 pans (either 8 or 9 inch pan) and bake using the instructions on the box.
3rd…Take cakes out of the pan and put on a cooling rack.  Put in the freezer.
I made these cakes in the morning while I was cooking breakfast, and I finished the cake after dinner that same day. This way I can frost and decorate on my time!

Frost the outside of the cake, since the cake is cold; it frost easily.
Once you have frosted the outside and the frosting is drying, apply the coconut or the marshmallows.  Don’t let the frosting dry or the coconut or marshmallows will not stick.  Place the coconut or marshmallows in the palm of your hand and press on the cake.

The Ears

2nd… Pinch the ears at the bottom.
3rd…Cut a slit in the top of the cake were you cut a piece of cake out.
Slice from back to front.  Slide the ear bottom in the slit area.
All done…Now it is beginning to look more like a bunny and less like a car.  (As my kids say)

Now add the jelly beans for a nose and two eyes.  You can use shoe string licorice for whiskers too.
Sprinkle green grass coconut on both sides of the bunny.  Add a few jelly to the grass coconut along side the bunny.

To Make the Bunny Fatter
To make the bunny fatter, you can use all 4- halves side by side to make him wider.

Football Superbowl party ideas, low cost and easy ways to decorate for game day, Football Food, Game day recipes made easy and budget freindlyFootball Super Bowl Party ~ Fast, Easy, Low Cost Ways to Decorate for Game Day

Are you hosting a football party or maybe a Super Bowl Party?  My son was having a Football Party, but I did not want to spend a bunch on decorations.  But at the same time I wanted it to look fun and festive.  I decided to make fun, low cost football serving containers for the chips out of a brown paper lunch sack.  At first I just dumped the chips right in the bag… but that left grease spots all over them.  I found it works best to keep the chips in their normal bag, and fold the top down or cut it off.  Then use the brown paper bag as the outer shell.

A bag of chips has a LOT of air in it, so I bought medium size bag of chips and it filled up the small (standard) lunch sack just perfect.  Start out by taking the flat, brown bag and drawing on the black laces of the football.  I did mine with a sharpie marker.  Open up your bag and  then fold down the top a few times to create a “bowl” out of your bag. Put your opened bag of chips inside, cut off the top of the bag or roll it down so it will not show.  You can use Football Stickers  and Craft Twine to decorate the bag too.  Clean up is super easy, just toss the bag in the trash and you are done 🙂

Trunk Or Treat~ Easy Way To Decorate Your Trunk

Looking for a quick, last minute idea to decorate your car for a trunk or treat? If you don’t know what a trunk or treat is, that is where you meet in a parking lot with a group of people and go trick or treating to each vehicle.  Its easy, quick and safe (no worries about your kids out walking on the dark streets where a vehicle may not see them).

This face was done in minutes and gives my boring trunk some personality.

You will need:

3 paper plates

black paper

glue

ruler

pen/pencil

scissors

Tape

Begin by using your ruler and pen/pencil to divide one of the plates into quarters.  Then cut them.  These will be your teeth.

Set the teeth aside and begin on your eyes.  I traced a small bowl on my black paper to get my inner eye.  Trace, cut, and then glue one black circle to each of your remaining paper plates.  There is your eyes.

Tape them on the back of your car and you are ready for the trunk or treaters!

Happy Halloween!
