Easter 2009: Great Chocolate Cake, Food & Fun

One of my greatest memories of Easter is how my paternal grandparents, I mean bunny, would hide 2 baskets for each of us in her house. I always knew that when I had kids, I would continue that tradition as it was so exciting for my sister and I to try to figure out where the baskets could be AND what would be in them. Here is what my children found (behind chairs, under tables and the bubbles on their place setting in the dining room) this year and we had so much fun watching them hunt.

Aren't my first attempt at royal icing cookies cute?

After looking at all of the treasures, we went and got dressed. The kids wanted us to try to dress alike so yellow shirts and jeans for the boys and pinks for the girls.

Finally, Isabel and I made a chocolate cake the day before and were quite proud of it, too bad the lighting was not better.

Love food? Come to my food blog, Savor The Thyme . By the way, I am entering this cake into the Easter Cake Bake 2009 at A Slice of Cherry Pie.
