Give Me A Grin For Easter 2012

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh – IT IS CHOCOLATE SEASON MY FRIENDS πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

nest 19
No joke I get a little bit excited (and a little bit hyper) because

  1. There are chocolate bunnies, eggs, carrots, designs etc. as far as the eye can see in every window display
  2. Easter Warehouses open which are long endless rows of chocolate!
  3. I am eating chocolate as I type

nest 10
Besides chocolate ;), I love Easter because

  1. All you amazing bloggers start going festive on me and I devour through the screen all your decadent delights (filled with chocolate – oops how did that sneak in there…)
  2. Easter hat parades, bunnies and cute lil’ chickens make random appearances making everyone smile πŸ˜€
  3. I get to enjoy the holidays for Easter break – YAY!

nest 13
Now this is a long post – there is so much to get through and so much time… good stuff right πŸ˜‰

Where should, I start, hmmmm *picks up pencil and begins to tap it on the desk*

Tap…. tap… tap… EUREKA! πŸ˜€

I am going to get you into the Easter spirit. Already claim you have Easter spirit? Doing Lent, eating chocolate, wearing bunny ears, you are good? I don’t think so… πŸ˜›
What is Easter without awesome, gorgeous, wish-you-could-eat-your-screen pictures? Nothing, I agree,Β  absolutely!

nest 17
So to get that Easter-vibe in the air, I give you a small amassed collection of amazing Easter creations I have seen and want to share! While I have seen many, no joke, these ones just made me squeal like a giddy five year old kid πŸ˜€

WARNING: Much chocolate is involved. Have a chocolate bar handy. Go Bake Yourself will not be held responsible for any heart palpitations.

In no particular order, allow me to present:

1. Cinna-bunnies by the magnificent Seaweed & Sassafras (cool name right??). Cute puns galore, awesome presentation and delicious cinnamon flavours, these bun(nie)s would definitely adorn an Easter breakfast table!

2. Mini Bundt Easter S’mores, found on the incredible This Sweet Wife. For all you campers who will be staring out at the stars at Easter time. this is definitely the most decadent Easter recipe for you! And for those sitting at home, rugged up in front of the fire as Autumn sets in, I guess you can try it too – you know you want to πŸ˜€

3. Chocolate-Covered Cookie Dough Bunnies by a newly discovered The Scrumptious Pumpkin. I am a lazy baker. I love taking the easy way i.e. eating the dough instead of the baked product πŸ˜‰ – Celebrate Easter the relaxed way with this beautifully designed, cute like crazy bunny treats!

4. The Happy Spring Cake Cookie Delight by spectacular and one of my closest blogging buddies Bam’s Kitchen is one to be drooled over and marvelled at. She has two sons. One wanted cookies. One wanted cake. So what does this genius do? Put them all into one superb, dripping-with-Easter-spirit cookie cake, bien sur!!

5. Easter Basket Cupcakes from the wonderful Dinner, Dishes, and Dessert are exactly as they sound. Sugary edible baskets carrying chocolate with the cutest and most adorable colours ever. Yep, I know I pinched myself too. Aren’t they lovely???

6. Mais Queso (Corn And Cheese) Ice Cream Nests from the much revered blog Pinay In Texas are for the adventurous, the daring and the totally food crazy. Chocolate cups, cheese, ice cream? Really can Easter get any more delicious? What a genius creation!

I wish I could show you lots more of the wonderful creations I have had the pleasure to drool over but if I did, this post would go on forever (and it is pretty close to doing that already ;))

I will just leave you to two more links in case you have not been satisfied πŸ˜‰

*****************************************************************************

Taking a little break (do not worry, I will be obviously returning to food ;)) I would just like to give a grand shout out to these three absolutely marvellous bloggers who have each awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award – I appreciate it so much πŸ˜€

  1. Heidi @ The Young Grasshopper – A new blogger I have met who has such vibrant personality and food to match!
  2. Lacy @ New York City Eats – A definite sweet-toothed foodie friends whose pictures may just be the most mouthwatering I have ever seen!
  3. Natalie @ Food Atick – Too sweet, too good at baking and cooking and too awesome is best description!

versatilebloggeraward
You can find the rules at any of these wonderful blog posts or here – since I have already told you 6 things about my Easter love, I think they have been fulfilled πŸ˜‰

My 7th can be my earliest Easter memory is in Kindergarten, when teachers use to draw bunny footsteps while we went to recess and when we came back, there were eggs on our desks πŸ˜€

I now pass on this honourable award to 15 bloggers – they are food-loving, genuine, and totally awesome! Congrats my friends πŸ™‚

*****************************************************************************

Now, where were we? Yes, chocolate, Easter and more πŸ˜€
Last year in my food tech classes, we made the most soft and fluffy hot cross buns I have ever had in my life. Wow were they delicious!

This year, I do not have the luxury of relying on school for my Easter baking. Time to take things (chocolate) into my own hands! I always adored the idea of making nests at Easter filled with chocolate eggs. Slowly but surely, an idea progressed in my head which involved the goodness of everything! Chocolate, Easter and a lot of patriotic Australian foodie spirit πŸ˜€

nest 18
Ladies, Gentlemen, Bunnies, Chickens and Children, IΒ  present to you: A Chocolate Pavlova Bird’s Nest πŸ™‚

A soft, cracking, melt-in-mouth CHOCOLATE flavoured meringue ‘bowl’ so to speak, with a double melted chocolate cereal nest filling, topped with chocolate birds eggs and served with a side of pretty presentation πŸ˜€

Why did I make a pavlova nest for my Easter eggs? Because I had never seen it before. It gives me a little incentive πŸ˜‰

IMG_5388

I can’t even begin to tell you much fun these were to make. First I used this recipe from the infallible Taste.com πŸ˜€
Beat a little egg, add in some sugar, beat for those peaks a little more and then WHOOSH, add in that sweet lovely cocoa powder πŸ˜‰
Just a little tip – my baking was done in 20-25 minutes so just be careful!

Next up – shaping πŸ˜€
I made 1/2 the recipe (serving one ;)) so I wasn’t able to but if you have enough meringue, this would best be served using this awesome technique


Otherwise use my less awesome and amateur technique πŸ˜›

  1. Draw a circle on a sheet of baking paper
  2. Place on a baking sheet
  3. Spoon your meringue into an icing bag, using a thick round nozzle at the end
  4. Pipe around the circle and fill the centre
  5. Using the back of a small spoon push meringue up the sides from the middle until the middle is thin and there are semi-walls visible on your meringue
  6. Carefully place in oven and BAKE – do not look back πŸ˜‰
Donut meringue? It is a thought...

Donut meringue? It is a thought…

Another little tip – let cool COMPLETELY! Do not even attempt to lift it off the baking sheet until it. is. cold πŸ™‚ (otherwise the bottom comes off and it is all rather dreadful to be honest!)

Moving on…

The filling. Oh my gosh, this filling is so yum. Definitely wouldn’t mind having it for breakfast instead of milk in my cereal πŸ˜€
I got my recipe from here – I would say use 1/2 the recipe for making a whole recipe of these meringues πŸ™‚
nest 15
Did I change anything – I am so surprised you keep asking!
I substituted half the dark chocolate with white chocolate since it was lying around and the filling came out beautifully! So addictive *and hence the double chocolate*
Also, you can use any cereal but Cornflakes or/and rice bubbles (rice krispies) give the best effect!

Then just go crazy with decoration (Like I told you at the beginning of this post, those chickens are the most adorable thing in the world!)

nest 14
And there you go – your very own Aussie bird nest! Didn’t know magpies kept their eggs in pavlovas down under? You do now πŸ˜€

*****************************************************************************

Lastly my friends, I am going on holiday for a week this Friday! And while I know I am going to have tons of fun, I would just like you to know I will not be food-blogging or even participating in the foodie community time to time, mainly because I won’t have internet access 24/7! So please do not be upset, I am a regular commenter and I apologise in advance (I promise to come back and comment!) πŸ˜€

Also, mentioning my return… my exams will be commencing (half yearly for yr 11) so although my breaks will be cooking and posting, my replying to comments will be slower than it even is now *sorry bout that* so again, letting you know in advance πŸ™‚

Last thing, I promise, I have gotten comments claiming it is hard for people to read this blog on a reader like iPad – if you switch it to Mobile View on any reader, you should be absolutely fine. If it still does not work, just let me know and I will put Frangipanis in another way πŸ˜€

Wait, no sorry I lied πŸ˜›

nest 20
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! Hope you all have a fun-family-filled chocoholic Easter overflowing with good times and great foods πŸ˜‰
Have a wonderful Easter break everyone and I shall see you on my return with lots more recipes to share πŸ˜€

Lots of Love πŸ™‚

    Absolutely beautiful meringues. I’m working on a savoury one. You can see my attempts at macarons. Tasted ok but I’m lacking the beautiful smooth top. I think this is where the lack of sugar shows. I’m working on it though. Where there’s a will there’s a way. Don’t suppose you have any ideas?

    Gosh…you and your sweet treats! You make me want to run away to a land of sweetness and never come back from it. My teeth would ache, but apart from that, I would be blissful, oh so blissful…

    • Awww that is one of the biggest compliment anyone has given me πŸ˜€ – Thanks so much! (BTW, you have directions to this land of sweetness?)
      Aching teeth goes away by brushing so the bliss is definitely worth it πŸ˜‰

  10. Fantastic linky loos! πŸ™‚ loving all the Easter treats and happy belated Easter.

    I’m having issues with my google reader. As you know I’m subscribed (remember me sending the screen shot in my reader app?) somehow something has gone funky with google and a LOT of my subscriptions have gone missing. No idea what has happened but I’ve lost a lot of blog subscriptions, yours included. I definitely did not unsubscribe.

    I was wondering why I haven’t seen any posts from you in my reader as your blog is one I remember seeing. So I’m subscribed again (hopefully) but rather sad about a lot of other blogs too. Perhaps time to send a message to Google support, ugh!

    • Thank you my friend on all counts – so happy you enjoyed this post πŸ˜€

      This news about your blown out google reader is terrible – mine actually does not work at all so I understand the frustration :S
      Definitely time to give google a little nudge!
      The only way I manage to keep up with everyone’s blogs now is by commenting on theirs after going through my own comments – it used to be so simple with the reader! πŸ˜›

      Happy Easter!
      Choc Chip Uru

      • I manage to fix the issues and have got it working through an app again (I don’t like Google reader’s interface itself so use an app). I don’t think I could ever keep up by going through comments (not that I get as much as you)! Before the app, I had them RSS bookmarked into a folder in my browser, easy. πŸ™‚

        Also, I know you’ve already got this award but here’s another! Lol. As a new subscriber who has recently found your blog, I think you have a great blog and therefore I’ve just awarded you and your fantastico blog with the Versatile Blogger Award.

        Please come by my blog and check out your award: http://www.sweet2eatbaking.com/2012/04/versatile-blogger-award.html

        -Lisa.
        Sweet 2 Eat Baking

    • That is one cool app! I am glad it is working for you again πŸ˜€
      RSS bookmarking is definitely also another great way of keeping up!
      And thank you very very much my friend – trust me, every award gives me the same thrill as the first πŸ™‚
      You are most kind and I too am your new follower!

      Cheers

    Have a wonderful holiday and good luck with your up coming exams!

    • You may call it an obsession if you wish πŸ˜‰ – And trust me, I am not a talented baker, I am an experimental baker πŸ˜› – the simplest recipes are my life sometimes πŸ˜€

    ooooh that looks sooo cute ! and so good !
    I also get kinda crazy around all those adorable chocolate ducks, chicks and bunnies…then again it might just be the sugar rush i get from eating them πŸ˜‰

  17. I just showed the picture of your adorable and creative pavlova nest to my youngest ponytail and she keeps saying “mummy can I have that now” mummy I want that now”. And it I had the energy at this very minute I would make it ….but I’m afraid that I don’t. Maybe later this weekend….

    • Awwww, your daughter is too cute – thank you to both you and her for enjoying them πŸ˜€
      Hope you (and her) have fun making and eating it – after a good night’s sleep no doubt πŸ™‚

    hahah omygod those little birds nests are too cute! I’m obsessed with those little chicks πŸ™‚ I’ve never made a pavlova either, I always see recipes for them but just haven’t given it a try yet – guess I should now! These are so perfect for Easter! Have a great holiday weekend πŸ™‚

    that meringue nest looks delicious! once i get a mixer i’m going to whip up some meringue and come back to this recipe. and thanks for visiting our blog!

  24. I am so glad that you posted all of those Easter projects so that I don’t have to post them (Can you imagine me painting like mad to illustrate everyone else’s creations?). The Pavlova looks good (I had a hot chocolate before reading this post). Enjoy your holidays and we’ll all see you when you get back.

    • My pleasure to help out πŸ˜€ – Though your paintings would have looked awesome!

    thank you so much for the award–what a sweet thing to do. thanks also for all the amazingly clever easter ideas–you have such a creative mind!

  26. I planned on making those little nests with pretzels and chocolate… and then the children ate all the pretzels. Maybe they left us some cornflakes? And thanks for amassing every single photo of delicious Easter food in one place. I totally just stole a piece of my kids Easter candy to satiate the craving. πŸ™‚

    • Haha pretzels is a great idea (and your kids are so cute!)

    I don’t celebrate Easter so much, just dinner with my family. I don’t even pay attention to window shops, but your post put me in the right mood for Easter so I’m going to take a walk and pictures discovering the Easter-vibe here in Milan!

    • Thanks my friend – confidentially, I do not celebrate it big either (just like you perfectt but simple!) πŸ˜€
      But definitely, go out to fairs, have some Easter fun! Must be so exotic in Milan πŸ™‚

      Happy Easter!

  43. Thank you so much Choc Chip Uru for awarding me this award. It’s my very first and I’m completely blessed to be a part of your post. I have so much admiration for your incredible talent and enthusiasm and it’s a privilege to be a part of this blogging experience. On other sweet notes, I just love your meringue nests ~ so cute and adorable. I have a real fondness for meringues and using them as a nest is a terrific idea! I hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday with your family.

    • I am so happy to deliver you the first blog award of many to come – putting you in my post was too, not optional πŸ˜‰
