Okay guys, I have two very easy + fun Easter food hacks for you that will make your weekend food festive, but don’t require hours and hours in the kitchen!
First up is how to make a store-bought cake look fancy and homemade with no trouble. I got my inspiration from The Cake Blog (thank you).
When you don’t have time to make a cake from scratch, you can run to the store and purchase a store-bought cake.
You will need:
Blue food coloring
You have two options: you can purchase a plain cake without frosting, or, if your cake has frosting and designs, leave the frosting and remove any designs so you have a flat cake surface and place in the freezer until the frosting begin to harden. Then all you have to do is make the white frosting that you purchased into the desired blue tone by adding the blue food coloring SLOWLY. Cover the cake with the new frosting. If you have an offset spatula, it works great. To help smooth the frosting, run the spatula under warm water and then pat dry.
Add decorations to the top of your frosted cake.
In a small cup, mix 1 ½ tsp. of vanilla extract with 1 tbsp. cocoa powder. Using any little brush — like a kid’s painting brush or a makeup brush — dip the brush into the cocoa mixture and flick the brush bristles towards the cake until you achieve the marble effect.
Now, I am warning you, this will get messy! But it is well worth it.

Next up are these adorable Easter bunny deviled eggs.
Cutesy dishes have a way of winding up as Pinterest fails, but my eggs are practically impossible to screw up. All I do is snip scallions into tiny strips and press down so that they crease at the sides. When you prop them into the filling of the egg, they look like bunny ears. The whole idea is to find ways to be creative with things you’ve already got in your kitchen!
