Bunny Bait

This is a very quick and yummy treat!  I saw this on Bake At 350's blog.  When I read that her number one tip for making it was to get it out of the house because it's so good I had to try it.



My adapted recipe:
2 packages Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet White Corn popcorn
10oz white chocolate candy melts (Bulk Barn)
3/4 cup spring M&Ms (Bulk Barn)
handful of confetti sprinkles (Bulk Barn)

I spread the mixture on two trays lined with wax paper and put them in the fridge for 10 minutes to make sure that the chocolate set.  Then I put about 3oz into each bag.  Makes 7 3oz bags.

Rubik's Cube Cake

This was my first time doing a 3 tiered cake.  Completely forgot about the need for using dowels and a platform so the bottom layer got a little squished from the weight after a while.  But not too bad thankfully.

Harley Davidson Flamin' Cake

I was asked to make this cake oh about a couple of weeks ago, so I had plenty of time to get myself ready for the cake.  But of course the classic procrastinator that I am left everything until the night before.  At least I made sure nothing needed to cure for more than a few hours.  I've been caught with needing something to "refrigerate overnight" with only a few hours to spare.  Fortunately, everything fell into place.  I even went to bed at a decent hour and got up fairly early and was ready to go on time.  As I'm leaving to meet up at the drop off spot I thought that I really should have swapped cell numbers, but I knew where I was going.  So after about an hour and a bit after the appointed time I finally tracked down the cell number and realised that I had no clue where I was.  *sigh* Thankfully I got the cake delivered and in one piece.  Hopefully it was worth the wait!
I really did enjoy making this cake.  The request was a Harley Davidson theme and Google d…
