I love Easter. It symbolized new life and reborn. Easter is also filled with pastel colors things and furry bunny ears headband that my Baby Girl adores. Easter also includes the fun Easter Egg Hunt and chocolate eggs that my Little Boy loves. Ever since my kids could take their first step on their own and held onto a basket, I planned and organized little Easter Egg Hunt at the backyard for them. This year is no exception. By the way, Easter falls on March 31st this year.
For the Easter Egg Hunt, I usually prepare plastic eggs filled with treats and hide them in the backyard. I also prepare big beautiful baskets for the kids to carry their treasures as they search and continue their "hunt". I really enjoy seeing the smiles on their little faces as they discovered each egg. Wait, I see something hatching from an egg below. What is it?
Oh, it’s an Easter Bunny! Wait, it isn’t just any Easter Bunny, it’s a Vanilla Bean Easter Bunny Macaron!
Wait, there’s another one hatching out…..
Wait, there’s more. Shhh….this one is still asleep! She’s just so cute. Let’s call her Sleeping Beauty, shall we?!
Oh…and Mr. Grumpy is here too!
I hear someone whispering….
So, here goes the Easter Bunny Tea Party. Care to join? Oh, and Sleeping Beauty is still sleeping, shhh…..
Of course, you can’t have a Tea Party without some treats! Can you? What do we have? Oh, Carrot Macarons with Cream Cheese Buttercream filling, of course. Those are Easter Bunnies’ favorite treats!
These sure look tasty and perfect for the Easter Bunnies.
This is such a fun party, let’s taste some carrots, shall we?
How was it, then?
Everything was in harmony, peace and quiet, until my kids decided to join the Easter Bunny Tea Party. Of course, you know how it ended.
The kids couldn't resist for a taste test. And yes, the Easter Bunnies were as delicious as the Carrot macarons. The End!
Have you ever wonder, what’s inside of an Easter Bunny Macaron’s head? Creamy Vanilla Bean Buttercream, that is. I’m not dare to watch!
Carrot Macaron Shells and Cream Cheese Buttercream fillings. I’m telling you, they taste just like a carrot cake, in macaron form.
In case you wonder, I sliced and dried some carrots in the oven for the shells.
Until they look like this (below). Then, I ground them all up with almonds, powdered sugar to make the shells.
Here are the Easter Bunnies before they went into the oven. Oh…sorry, that just doesn't sound right. hahaha…..I hope you’re looking at the picture below too and not just reading the paragraphs alone.
Here’s the Easter Bunny being filled with Vanilla Bean Buttercream. Oh so yum!
Do you celebrate Easter? What's your plan for the Easter weekend? I would love to hear from you. I hope you all enjoy today’s special Easter post. Until next time...
P.S.: After I was done editing the pictures for this post, I found out that Baby Girl has a sweater with a bunny that looks very similar to “Sleeping Beauty”. So, my Baby Girl was my model that day and I snapped a few fun shots. Say goodnight, I mean goodbye to "Sleeping Beauty". She’s living happily ever after in my Baby Girl’s tummy!
Disclaimer: No Easter Bunny was hurt during the production of this post. We all had a fun tea party and a happy tummy!
