Tomorrow is Easter Sunday!
Easter came early this year, which happens from time to time since its date is the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring.
Maybe that’s why this year Lent has seemed a little less Jesus-y for me than in years prior. We just celebrated Christmas & here is Easter already.
Nonetheless, just like Christmas, Jesus is the reason for the season.
My coworker is throwing her annual Easter picnic & egg hunt. Last year I made a bunny cake & brought my niece with me to the egg hunt. It was a lot of fun.
This year I am so over all the bunnies.
Easter isn’t about bunnies & egg hunts. It isn’t even about family & good food. It’s about Jesus.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
With that being said, Easter is a celebration! Up from the grave he arose! So it should be bright & fun 🙂
I hope I captured that spirit in this cake.
Funfetti cake with crushed M&Ms in the center, cream cheese frosting & malted eggs for decor.
Easter should be fun, especially for children. But it’s that cross in the center that is the most important piece of this whole weekend.
Happy Easter! He is risen, indeed!
