Chocolate Hazelnut Mud Cakes

Chocolate hazelnut mudcakes by Sarah Coates of The Sugar Hit

There’s something about the coming of Spring, the Easter season, and the flowers in the air that says one thing: chocolate. It’s definitely the chocolate time of year, and these dark, fudgy little cakes are just the ticket. They would be perfect on at almost any event. They make as elegant an end to dinner, as they do a decadent addition to high tea. I particularly love these as an alternative to the more boring traditional gift of store-bought chocolates. Imagine receiving a cake box with four of these lush cakes instead of a boring foil-wrapped bunny, now that is a hostess gift! And I say four, because this recipe makes eight, meaning you get to keep some for yourself. Read on →

DIY paper Swedish Easter tree

paper-feather-tree

Last year I had a reader ask if I could come up with a cheap and easy Easter centerpiece for the table. Well, a year later it’s coming true! Påskris it is! This one is cheap and easy though a bit time consuming.

Påskris is a Swedish Easter tree that I caught wind of while living in Scandinavia. I’ve been wanting to do my own version for ages now so this year was the year! They’re usually made with real feathers and painted Easter eggs, paper roosters, pipe cleaner witches, crochet catkins, and yarnball chickens (????) but I decided to keep it to paper feathers. I love the movement they created.

It would make a great centerpiece for an Easter table or just a fun decor statement for the house. And if you’re making decorations for a party, just make the arrangement smaller in scale to cut down on labor and costs.

Giant Arm Knit Bunny

Giant arm knit bunny

Last year I got to work with one of my favorite people, Anne Weil of Flax and Twine, on a fun project in addition to the book I styled for her, Knitting Without Needles. She popped into town to do some Easter projects. One of them being this amazing giant arm knit bunny. Isn’t it to die for?  Read on →

SPRING!

Hooray! Spring means pastels and wonderfully shipper projects. Lucky us get St. Patrick’s Day AND Easter all in the same month this year. But we’re kicking it off with Easter! These 3D paper Easter egg name tags are perfect for your Easter party or table setting.
