Adorable Bunny Cupcakes for Easter

Well let's hop to it and make these adorable little bunny cupcakes with the children for the Easter celebration.  So easy to make especially if you buy pre-made cupcakes and ready made icing... or if you've time on your hands you can make your own from your favourite cupcake recipe.

What you'll need...

White icing
Shredded coconut
Pink decorators' sugar
Jelly beans for the nose
Chewable sweets for the eyes
Large marshmallows
Mini marshmallows
  1. Frost your cupcakes with white icing and sprinkle on your shredded coconut all over to look like fur
  2. Cut each of the large marshmallows in half (width-wise) and squeeze each half slightly to give it an oval shape, then decorate the sticky side of each one with pink decorators' sugar and set them in place for the bunny ear
  1. Add a jelly bean for the nose and either jelly beans or small round sweets for the bunny eyes and use the mini marshmallows for cheeks. For a finishing touch you can draw on with the decorators' gel sugar pupils on the eyes and/or whiskers. 

Easter Eggs Hand Decorated With Love...

Such a lovely story in the news this Easter, despite the horrid weather we're all experiencing this inspirational elderly couple have decorated a 5ft high apple tree with over 10,000 personally decorated easter eggs!

The couple from Thuringia in Germany spent two weeks in the freezing conditions getting the tree ready in time for the Easter celebrations up and down ladders ignoring the snowfall.  The decorated chicken and duck eggs are on display each year and after the celebrations are carefully stored away until next Easter and all broken eggs are discarded and replaced.

Buying a Gift for An Aries Baby?

Aries are born: March 21st- April 19th

Be sure to know what gift to buy for the Aries in your life as the bold and independent Aries usually will not make a secret if he or she doesn't like the gift!  As an Aries believes that he or she was born to do great things they will hope to receive gifts that would show them as famous, rich, successful or beautiful.

The Arian is not in the least sentimental so steer clear of buying gifts like cuddly toys etc. Buy gifts that appeal to the adventurously-playful side of an Aries, such as skydiving lessons, auto-racing lessons or tickets to a sporting event.  The Arian likes an 'experience' rather than something tangible so what may seem like an impractical gift would likely be a good selection for the dynamic Aries.  Most Arians love new hobbies and learning new tasks.

Red is their governing colour as it's the colour of life and energy excitement, risk and danger. Bright red/orange flowers are therefore a great gift for the fiery female Aries. Foods like hot chillies might appeal to the Aries man. Many Aries men have a great attraction to fire: they love to camp, barbecue or even keep a fire in the fireplace at home. Gifts about fire will be a big hit for the Aries man.

Aries hates wasting time and proper time management is on top of the agenda. Think personal organizers, travel diaries and so on. You can also gift gadgets that will help in saving time like microwaves, blenders, toasters, coffeemakers and so on.
For the female Aries hair accessories, earrings, sunglasses and stylish organizers are going to be popular. For the men gadget “toys” will win their approval as will anything that confirms his status as an action man. Tickets to a sporting event are also likely to be popular with the Aries male.
So, to sum up Gifts which revolve around physical and competitive pursuits, vehicles, gadgets, and hands-on activities will bring a big smile to your Aries face.
