That's my GFCF Easter cake for the girls. My Mom bought me a cake pan from Williams Sonoma last year - it makes the bunny and two beautiful Faberge style eggs! I love baking. And with the girls' diet it's pretty much a necessity if you want holiday treats. So, here it is!
The sugar egg is a holiday staple here. My Mom always bought for us one as kids and they amazed me with the little scene inside.
I also have two Italian favorite items in my fridge - Ricotta pie (sweet) and Pizzagaina - which is a savory ricotta pie with ham in it. Fattening? Madonn' are they fattening! But they are EASTER, at least to me. I've made them from scratch in the past when I've had company. This year we live near a fabulous Italian grocery store (Poricelli's) and all the holiday favorites are in stock and ready to go! One of the blessings of being back in the NorthEast - although in Cleveland I learned about and came to enjoy many Eastern Euro treats.
Now, the Easter Bunny had better get her act together for our egg and basket hunt tomorrow! Perugina makes these dark chocolate (milk free) tall eggs with a toy inside. The girls get one each year. Their baskets have toys, books and such. Not much in the way of candy.
