Tradition: Dying Easter Eggs
Modern Twist: Easter Egg Decorating Contest
This contest idea was introduced to me by my husband's family and they go ALL OUT! Everyone gets together the Saturday before Easter to decorate their eggs and then they are judged on Easter Sunday during dinner. The host provides the eggs and traditional dying materials but you can bring anything else you want to use in the competition. We've seen all types of eggs over the years!! It's a fun activity for everyone to do together and everyone gets an award which is nice.
Tradition: Easter cookies or cupcakes
Modern Twist: Easter Cake Pops
This year I am going to attempt to make Easter Cake Pops! I normally bring cookies, cupcakes or another type of sweet treat to my husband's family in Carlisle, PA for Easter weekend. I'm switching it up this year and taking my inspiration from my new Bakerella Cake Pops book. I decided to try the Chicks & Easter Egg ones this year and display them in a large Easter basket. We'll see how they turn out!!
