In my last post I brought you bunches of beautiful Roasted Rainbow Carrots. You can share those with the Easter bunny or keep them all to yourself. I have been be-bop hip-hopping around the web collecting all kinds of goodies in my basket. As always Pinterest provides me with loads of daily eye candy. If you don’t all ready, do follow me over there. It has become a second blog space. A whole other world….of visual delights!
There are many adorable crafts, treats, Easter themed gifts and designs swirling around the web. I am excited to showcase them here. Above are my gluten free Peter Rabbit Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Great for breakfast, snacks & dessert. Dig in.
I have a little Giveaway going on over at my Facebook fan page Enter to win a copy of Marshmallow Madness.
How cute is this handmade felt bunny! My obsession and love for Etsy.com grows larger every day.
This handmade eco friendly wool felt cutie is by Needle and Felt. Check out her store for adorable + playful items. They will make you *smile* I promise…
Stunning painted eggs via Leslie from the blog A Creative Mint and you must check it out.
She does amazing hand painted artwork on eggs over at Decor8. Take a look…
What the what?
When I was little all we got were Cadbury Creme Eggs ~ which are by the way delish. Nowadays creative folks like Raspberri Cupcakes bring us homemade Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Easter Egg Cups.
What could be cuter than little birds tucked into coconut nests? The lovely Georgia from The Comfort of Cooking brings us these sweet little Springtime Bird’s Nest Cupcakes.
Love how she decorated the colorful pastel eggs with eyes and beaks…chirp
Who says you have to hop off your healthy eating plan for the holidays? Not me. Check out my gluten free recipe for Strawberries and Cream Whoopie pies.
A tasty treat with 0% guilt. That’s the way I roll.
Mini Decorated Cookies hanging from white tree branches from Sweetopia. Adorable.
Over here they would not last long on those pretty pink ribbons. They would be worn as bracelets, necklaces and then eaten within seconds…
Check out this gorgeous Easter Tree Cake from My Cake School. Melissa shows you how to make this awesome cake on her blog. She even makes it seem easy.

From the look of it Tidy Mom is having a blast with Easter baking.
Love that she decorates these Bunny Lemon Filled Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream in 3 ways!
Just because most folks used brightly colored food coloring (which is fun) some opt to go Au Natural. Here is a great post via The Urban Baker about how to make Au Natural Dyed Easter Eggs. She also gives us a bonus egg salad recipe inspired by her grandma Rose.
I love the subtle earth tones natural dyes from beets, cranberries, carrots and turmeric can create!
Once you have all of that beautiful au natural egg dye at the ready, how about making Paper-Napkin Decoupage Easter Eggs?
These are from Shelterness and they got the genius idea from Martha Stewart.
Such a beautiful tabletop created by Heather Christo. All your guests would be wowed by these Easter Centerpieces…
Some more great decorative touches. These by Weekend Carnival….

Friends I share with you not one, but two versions of Easter Cake Pops….the first are from the very talented and FABULOUS Bakerella.
I think this holiday (every holiday) would be very fun at her house…
The amazing Amanda from i am baker has Peeps Cake Pops!

If you don’t want to eat a chocolate or egg bunny then how about a fun painting for your wall?
This Beauregard Reproduction Print I found on Etsy from Janet Hill Studio. I need this. Now.
No stylish round up would be complete without a tribute to the King: Sweet Paul
