Ingredients :
cake mix; baked to form two circular cakes

Bunny Cake

You have two circular cakes, as though each would normally be one layer of a birthday cake. One is the head. The other is used the make ears and a bow tie. Cut the two ears out of either side of the circular cake, and then the center becomes a bow tie.

Ingredients :
1 (10 ounce) Reeses peanut butter chips
1 tablespoon solid shortening
1 (5 ounce) can thin chow mien noodles
1 bag pastel colored M&M peanut candy

Bird's Nest

Preparation :
Melt entire bag of chips and 1 tablespoon of shortening slowly in microwave or in double boiler on stove top. If using microwave, heat full power in intervals of 30 seconds at a time and then less as chips begin to melt. You want the chips and shortening to be well blended and creamy and hot. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!! Immediately pour the can of chow mien noodles into the peanut butter mixture and toss lightly to coat noodles. Avoid crunching noodles. Using a spatula can help. Do this quickly, making sure the noodles are evenly coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto WAX PAPER and gently form into the shape of a nest, leaving a hollowed area in the center in which you immediately place three M&M peanut candies for the "birds eggs". Each batch makes approximately 14 nests.


Ingredients :
1 1/2 lb. Carrots
1 Tbs. Olive Oil
1/2 Tbs. Red Wine Vinegar
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 clove of Garlic, finely chopped
Pinch of Black Pepper
Pinch of Paprika
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 Tbs. fresh Parsley, chopped

Carrot Salad

Preparation :
Cut the carrots lengthwise into four quartered sections. If they're very long, cut across so that you get eight pieces from each carrot. Put the carrots into lightly salted boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes, until they're starting to become tender but are still crisp. Drain the carrots. Mix the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, pepper, and paprika together in the saucepan, which has been washed and dried. Add the carrot segments and the salt and turn over a very low heat for about 5 minutes, until the flavors are all impregnated into the carrots. Remove, pile into a dish, and sprinkle with the parsley. Leave to cool before serving.

Fill four 9 x 13 inch pans with flour and use the egg to make egg impressions in the flour. Dissolve gelatin in cold water (to soften) then stir in boiling water. Add 2 cups sugar and vanilla; whisk until soft peaks form. Spoon immediately into egg impressions and lay a vanilla wafer on top (curved side down). Let set. Melt chocolate and wax. Shake flour from marshmallow egg and dip in chocolate. Lay on waxed paper. Allow to set. Decorate with colored frosting if desired.
