How to Make an Easter Bunny Bonnet

It’s the last week of school before the Easter holidays, so that can only mean one thing – it’s bonnet making time. This year I thought we would try something a little different so this afternoon I helped Izzy turn her 99p hat into a cute Easter bunny. A princess Easter bunny, to be exact, as she decided that it had to be wearing a crown.

How to Make: A Sandcastle Cake

A friend and I made this sandcastle cake for a surprise 30th birthday party. We were both pretty impressed with how it turned out so I thought I would share how to make it. Blogging about it was a bit of an afterthought though so apologies for the lack of ‘in progress’ photos!

The good thing about this cake is that it doesn’t need to look perfect and completely symmetrical. You can use whatever size and shape cake tins you have, and your castle can be as adventurous and as detailed – or as simple – as you like.

Handprint Christmas Bunting

Pinterest has been inspiring me with its wealth of Christmas crafts, and I especially love the festive hand and foot prints. Having already sent cards and made tree decorations, I wanted another way to show off display some of Izzy and Clara’s artwork – so I made it into bunting to hang over the fireplace.
