Easter Eggstravaganza

Then comes Easter. To start the Easter long weekend, I attended a picnic on Easter Friday. We'd had a week of rain leading up to the event, so were a bit dubious about being outside in an uncovered area, but we persevered and all met up in a gazebo in the Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane City. There was an egg hunt, easter trivia, egg races and of course eating. Feeling a little worse for wear now that I scoffed all of my chocolate, but it was a fun afternoon.

For the occasion, I baked triple chocolate cupcakes that had a dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate layer. It was a new recipe so I was a little dubious about how it would turn out. They were a little dense but that's what you get with a cake that has melted chocolate in it.

I also turned my hand to hat decorating and made up some easter festive hats for myself and my travelling companion Ainead. I went a little nuts in a discount shop last weekend a stocked up on supplies and then spent Thursday night going nuts with my hot glue gun. The hats turned out super cute though. One is chicken and egg theme, the other is bunny theme.

I had a lovely time and while I don't really need the extra sugar and calories it would be a lovely event to repeat next year.


  1. These hats are amazingly cute and your Easter egg hunt seems to be a lot of fun! I wish we had such dress up events here in Germany!

  2. It was so much fun! I'm hoping we can repeat with kinder weather next year! Thank you for letting me wear the spare Easter bonnet! :)
