Watermelon Rabbit

watermelon rabbit

I learned about this cute treat via Twitter (@GvilleRabbits, @bunE). The recipe is from the National Watermelon Promotion Board and involves some carving and some attachment of features with toothpicks. I’m a little doubtful in my ability to recreate this, but if you could do it, I think it would be a real hit at a summer party.

Get the recipe at the National Watermelon Promotion Board.

Easter Bunny Confections

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

Easter is just around the corner, and hopefully many of you are aware of the Make Mine Chocolate campaign which advocates giving chocolate bunnies instead of real bunnies as gifts. To extend upon that theme, here is a list of other Easter Bunny confections you may enjoy!

Easter Bunny Cake

Here’s another way to add a bunny into your Easter celebration: Bunny Cake!

Easter Bunny Cake

This carrot cake recipe idea is from Betty Crocker. From reading the reviews, it seems fairly easy to make. Some people who didn’t like coconut skipped the coconut “fur” and just left it frosted.
