Everyone needs a chick farm this Easter! Oats form the base with Imperial Mints as little eggs and some marbles for a pond.  Easy peasy and super cuuuute!

Let the shenanigans begin 🐤

Raspberry Curd Tart

Easter Sunday.  Peak dessert time 🍧IMG_4021

This year we’ve whipped up a Raspberry Curd Tart.

One of my favourite things to make in the world is a curd. Stir stir stir and watch it thicken.

This recipe was fantastic.  Everything was perfectly precise and making the curd in advance makes for easy assembly when dessert is called for.

Such a pretty colour and such a raspberry hit.

Hoppy Easter everyone!

 

Mincemeat muffins

Some days you wake up and know that you want to bake…and sometimes that means raiding the cupboards for ingredients, and panicking that there’s just nothing to add flavour with until discovering that jar of mincemeat you never got round to using at Christmas (still well within date!)

At that point there’s really nothing to do but make these yummy mincemeat muffins.

I followed this blogger’s recipe, and the results were a flavour packed treat.  Moist and delicious with only a hint of Christmas about them, I may be searching for more forgotten jars of mincemeat to make these again!  Perhaps I’ll try a little added orange zest next time…yum.

Hop hop hooray

 

Easter baskets underway! We’re really hoppy with how they’re coming along.  A cute mix of handmade and shop bought bunniness 🐣

This year we’ve gone for pompom chicks and bunnies, crocheted carrots, some egg shaped crayons and of course plenty of chocolate ♥

Some bunny loves Easter madness (^-^)

Comic wrap

IMG_3996Gift wrap.  A hot topic of interest for {auntie dotes}.  Why stop at awesome presents when you can make them look even awesomer with a bit o strategically placed paper and tape?

But what do you do when you can’t find the perfect wrapping paper? Get creative!

The Beano makes the perfect gift wrap for a 7 year old boy’s birthday stash.  It even gives a better fold than some cheaper rolls of wrapping paper.

And for the tricky shapes? We got a £1 Spiderman plastic tablecloth and wrapped our present like a wine bottle. Super we say  (^_^)  Happy Birthday Lil GN ♥

Chick this out 🐤

A wreath of chicks – how springy we hear you say (^-^)

How could we resist?  These crazy chicks make for a perfectly manic Easter decoration.

All you need is 100 chenille chicks, superglue and a ring of cardboard.  Obvi*

The joy of making this is immense.  Buying packs and packs of chicks is just the beginning. Chopping off their feet for a more glueable surface adds great comic value, then placing them side by side and watching your ring fill up equals complete satisfaction.

Herein starts another crazy chick tradition 🐤 Huzzah!
