Not much else in this world makes me happier than my nieces and nephews. One of them, Talon, is five and he's such a handsome, sweet, bright, well-mannered kid. When his mom asked me to make a cake for Tal's Easter party, I was excited. Remember, I'm new at this whole cake thing, so holidays are all still a novelty for me. I wanted to do a bunny cake (really just so I could put "Hoppy Easter") (as if that's the most clever, original thing EVER) (yes, I know, cake nerd), but time wouldn't allow for a bunny cake, so I moved on to the next best thing: an egg cake. I didn't have an egg pan, so I carved a sheet cake and made it work. Necessity is the mother of invention, right? WASC with whipped vanilla bean butter cream filling and icing, covered with a few strips of fondant to dress up the egg. I tried to use "boy" colors, and fought hard to resist the urge to add some pink. I don't think Talon approved of the daisy on the cake, but I bet the little girls in his classroom loved it! Happy Easter everybody!
