Easter Projects

This afternoon (while Mr. B has been napping) the Princess and I made Easter cards. We had so much fun together cutting, pasting and stamping. I'm so glad she enjoys that sort of thing! It's fun quality time together for us.

My next project is the Princess' birthday cake. Since her day falls on Easter this year, I thought I would do something I've been wanting to try for a while. You may remember this old issue of Victoria with the precious lamb cake on the cover:

and the sweet mini lamb cakes shown on the inside:

Well, when that issue came out I had to have those cake molds:
I've never yet used them, but THIS year I'm going to ! It'll be a special Easter birthday cake celebration! I'm still working on what recipe to use, but I'm sure it'll all come together. I've never baked in these types of pans though, so if anyone has any tips for me--bring them on!

**UPDATE: I just found the most adorable Easter egg project that I so wish I had time to do--but I'm going to tuck this one away to do next year! Go here to see it.
