For Easter dinner, everyone was asked to bring a side dish for the meal. It's been a crazy busy week, so we asked if we could just pick up something from the store - so we were asked to get a dessert. But I just couldn't justify getting a store-bought dessert when we can make such fabulous ones ourselves! So we quickly whipped up this Easter egg cake. No fondant and easy decorations made this cake come together pretty fast. The cake was pineapple with a coconut frosting and coconut shavings!
Acorn squash is the perfect squash vessel for stuffing because each half is ideal for a single person serving. I even opted to go the healthier route and loaded it with onions and apples rather than rice or other grain!
Ever since we made an awesome wedding cake for Tim & Steph, we have been eager to make more beautiful cakes and try out more cake decorating techniques! So here is an update on our most recent cakes!
I think in the end, after all the chowder we had in Seattle, that Ivar's is my favorite and Brad's too. It's the perfect consistency and flavor; it's the good ol' classic! It was always my mom's favorite too and always a stop we had to make when visiting the Seattle area. I remember when I was 5, (foolishly) feeding the seagulls right outside the Ivar's on the waterfront. My mom's grandfather supposedly knew Ivar as well, pretty cool! There are multiple locations throughout Seattle. We stopped at the waterfront and got a giant tub of chowder to share. And then we got it for breakfast at the airport on our day out. We also got a crab, egg, and cheese english muffin! Ivar's has and always will remain a special chowder part of my life!
