I’ve been tasked with bringing dessert to Easter Dinner tomorrow and I racked my brain all week trying to find an original dish that would be cute, tasty, yet still significantly impressive. I had almost given up and resigned myself to the fact that I would probably be stopping at the Whole Foods bakery on the way to Chris’s dad’s house, when I came across a recipe for an absolutely adorable butterfly cake. As a kid my family was a big fan of the traditional bunny cake so this seemed right up my alley. I even braved the hordes of frantic parents in the Easter candy isles at Target in order to find the requisite pastel M&M’s.  Now by no means am I very much of a cake decorator, and frosting the raw edges gave me fits, but I think it came out pretty well. At the very least It looks like a 10 year old made it instead of a 7 year old. High praise indeed!
