Easy Barrel Cake – Easter Idea

easter-bunny-cake-design

 

Whenever a baking project goes wrong you are tempted to throw everything away and start all over. We’re here to tell you, you don’t have to disrespect your work only because of a little mistake. And even if it’s not the case of a ruined cake, this next tutorial for making a barrel cake is perfect to keep in mind just in case you want a special type of recipe to bake. Here is what you will need:

• some icing or frosting;
• a couple of spatulas;
• a bunch of long and thin candies or cookies (like Kit Kat, Twix, etc.);
• strawberries, M&M’s or jelly beans to use as toppings;
• (optional) a string of ribbon;

Now, you can even start work with a cake literally in 5 pieces. No need to worry at this point, because the frosting will act like some sort of glue to all the ingredients. Begin frosting your sides and continue with the top of the cake. Most of the times, the advice is to fashion a crumb coat at first, before applying the frosting or icing. Because when decorating in the barrel cake way, it’s not like changing the interior design of your room: it can be clean, or messy, or in between. Because the candy will cover it! So, grab the thing bars of candies or cookies. Use the frosting as adhesive on the back of each candy and attach them to the cake, making sure they all touch each other at the end, all the way round the cake. Don’t be afraid to cut them in order to fit the pattern. When this step is done, you can move on to filling the top of the cake with strawberries or other jelly beans. Bon appetite!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

sourcreamcoffeecake

 

Not diet friendly but know many of you do not need to worry about that!!

Enjoy!!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Cream together:
1 C. butter (I use unsalted)
2 C. sugar
2 eggs

Fold in 1 C. sour cream & ½ tsp. vanilla. Then fold in 2 C. sifted cake flour. I honestly don’t sift anymore… don’t really need to. A good substitute if you don’t have cake flour is: 2 T. cornstarch & remainder of the 2 C, flour.

Topping, mix together (I use a fork):
¾ C. chopped nuts
2 tsp. cinnamon
4 T. brown sugar

Grease & flour 9” bunt cake pan. Recipe calls to spoon in half of the mix, but I do it in 3rs because I really like the topping put in the center in a couple places… So, spoon 1/3 or ½ of the mix (dough) in the pan & spread it somewhat evenly around. Sprinkle some of the nut topping on, enough to cover the dough. Spoon in another 3rd (or the rest) of the dough, spread evenly, then more of the nut topping. Finally spoon in the rest of the dough and spread around evenly (if doing 3rds) and put remainder of topping on.

Bake in 350° oven for 1 hr. 15 minutes or until done – test with toothpick. Cool before removing from pan. Although I haven’t had to do this yet, my recipe has instructions that the cake may need to be cut in half to remove from pan. Finally… Enjoy!!

Bunny Bait

Awesome Idea for Easter

Bunny bait !

2 cups pretzels
1 bag popped white popcorn
1 package Almond Bark white melting chocolate
1 bag of festive M&M’s
2 cups of Chex cereal
1 container of sprinkles
Spread pretzels , popcorn and Chex on a foil covered baking sheet and drizzle white chocolate over the mixture. Gently stir to coat evenly. Add sprinkles but don’t stir it anymore or the sprinkles will be coated with chocolate and turn white. Let harden on cookie sheets and then break apart and add M&M’s to the finished mixture.

Adult Gummy Bears

adultgummybears

ADULT GUMMY BEARS

HOW TO:
Put your Gummy Bears in a container with a lid.

Submerge them in your Alcohol of choice (vodka, tequila etc).
****Some have used Whipped Cream Vodka****
Cover and put in the fridge for at least 24 hours
to soak up the liquid. It is amazing that the gummy bears just absorb the
liquid; the more liquid you add the more they absorb.
The gummy bears just grow, becoming a delicious adult treat!
