Have A Swiss Colony Easter!
Thank you Swiss Colony for the opporunity to review your bakery items.
Every year we gather our family and head to church for Easter Services. What a soul refreshing time! We are reminded of why Easter is so important! Also known as Ressurection Sunday because we celebrate Jesus Christ's ressurection from the dead. This is the one holiday that has the largest attendance for church services for Christians. We also call Easter the Moveable Feast because it doesn't fall on a set date as does other holidays! The feast is based on the lunar calendar and Easter is scheduled to fall on the Sunday that follows the full moon on or after March 21, also known as the Spring Equinox.
After church, we return home to have this massive meal and of course keep the children busy as a few "hoppy volunteers" head out to the yard and hide Easter eggs! We fill them with money, small toys, and candy. There are also boiled eggs that the children have enjoyed coloring the night before. They really enjoy doing this task and are very creative.
We have finished the feast and the children are lining up at the door with Easter baskets in hand! They are ready to run! The excited chatter makes the heart and home fill will so much joy! This makes me want to be a child again! I want to hunt for the eggs too! We get the all clear for our stand in Peter Cottontails and open the doors. The children squeal with excitement and head out the door! Parents are quick to follow with cameras in hand! Oh! What fun this hour of hunting is for all! Young and old are laughing, running around, taking pictures, pointing out eggs, and simply enjoying each other's company.
Normally, I will make some amazing dessert. This year has been so busy that I simply didn't have time to be creative. Between our move, this site, and my need to snoop around the new community for interesting hot spots to share with all of you, I am just not feeling the baking bug! Thanks to the fine folks at Swiss Colony, I will be able to enjoy more time with the family without all of the time in the kitchen!
This is a trio of delicious bakery items straight from Swiss Colony! Each adorable in their own right with cute character designs. My favorite is the cute Easter Chick Cake! It's lemon flavored! Shawn is my chocolate lover and will head straight for the Easter Bunny Cake. The Easter Lamb is vanilla flavored and I am sure will also be a huge hit! I have to admit, we have already tried the Chick and the lemon flavor is extremely good. The cake is moist with a nice icing. Per package suggestion, we heated up a knife so that it would glide through the icing, the rest was a "piece of cake"! Get it?
Swiss Colony took the time to not only ship these yummy cakes quickly, they were also wrapped very well and in a nice box! Their quality was excellent! The cakes were smaller than I had imagined. Of course there is still plenty to enjoy! We will be kicked back on our porch with coffee and tea while snacking of the cake rolls. We may even scoop some ice cream out to serve with it!
Thoughts of Happiness wants to wish all of you a very Happy Easter Sunday! Enjoy your family, food, and fun!
