Last week, we participated in the “All About Easter” event at Kiki Creates. Thanks, Kiki, for letting us be a part of it, you did a great job!
I made a pretty white-chocolate Easter basket that was inspired by Bakerella’s Pudding Cups. She dipped balloons in melted chocolate to make little bowls (see her cute picture below).
I dipped a larger balloon in melted white chocolate, placed it onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper, and chilled it. After the chocolate had hardened, I popped the balloon, and peeled it off the chocolate shell. I was left with a pretty white bowl!
I dipped another balloon, aprox. the same size, in the chocolate, and chilled it as well. Then, with a butter knife that I warmed on the stove, I cut a strip to use as my basket handle, and attached it with melted chocolate.
Using a flat paintbrush dipped in melted chocolate, I painted on the woven design. I colored chocolate with pink and yellow candy coloring, and spooned each color into a plastic sandwich baggie. After snipping the corner, I piped pretty Spring flowers onto waxed paper, and let them chill. I attached the flowers to the sides of the basket with melted chocolate.
For the eggs, I wrapped plastic Easter eggs with homespun paper yarn (for my tutorial, click here), and filled my pretty basket! Didn’t it turn out lovely?
Aren’t they beautiful?!
