CREME EGGS IT’S A BIT HARD TO CHOOSE...click any pic to get you there!

WICKED WAYS WITH

CREME EGGS

We found a delectable creme egg cake on the Iced Jems site. If this doesn’t tease your Easter tastebuds - then nothing will! The creme eggs found their way into the filling and on top!! If creme brulee is more your thing then visit the Culinary Concotions by Peabody . We think this might be the real thing. What we loved about this recipe was the awesome instructions - anyone can make it! Easter wouldn’t be the same without cupcakes (in our humble opinion) and really there is no substitute for a truly amazing fail-free recipe such as this one. We found this one at the Chocolate Moosey blog.

Lastly and definitely not the least, a trusted brownie recipe should be on everyones Easter list and the recipe at Roxana’s Home Baking aims to please.The highlight of this recipe is it’s got Creme Eggs IN the mixture and the texture is ‘fudgy’ - we love! Enjoy!

f you’re looking for the ultimate in consummate style or some ‘shabby chic’ Easter inspiration for dressing up your Easter breakfast or brunch; the mega-talented Kristi of KristiMurphy.com raises the bar with her eclectic vintage Easter brunch and dessert buffet.

Obviously we’re all the about food here at Party Design and you can find more detail on cupcakes with pastel frosting, the delectable Coconut Cake, pastel macarons and organic strawberry lemonade and sumptuous coffee cake at the KristiMurphy.com site!

By artfully marrying the perfection of pastels with spectacular vintage pieces, Kristi successfully creates a stunning mix of ideas using time-honored pieces.

Check out our favourite pics in the slideshow (on the left!). The full spread on her blog is a definite must – it as hard to choose, but we’ve got some of our faves!

Magic is created with spare sheets and tulle, lace and packaging paper! A sentimental touch was added by using dishes and plates passed down from a beloved grandparent.

Click the green arrow (above left) to see the slideshow.

The magnificent centrepiece was cleverly created using candle stick holders, pompoms and a bowl. Don’t miss the apothecary jar filled with pastel-coloured pot

The beauty of this entire spread is that you can use some or all of these ideas for your Easter celebration with the use of Kristi’s Easter Party Printables which can be found here.
