Easter!


These are my two favorite pictures from the whole exciting Easter weekend!

I think this Easter was the best one I have ever experienced! I love that our children are getting to age where they are beginning to grasp that the "holidays" we celebrate are about more than candy, gifts, and new clothes. Our children's programs at church did an amazing job of bringing everything to life...Christ died for our sins but conquered sin and death by raising again! They were just as excited about Jesus being alive as they were about the jelly beans. That makes me smile!
Every church service, family activity and even the weather--all were absolutely perfect! And on the way lighter side...the food all turned out perfect too!
This was my favorite treat of the day! Abby's Coconut Cake is totally the best cake I've ever had!

Angel Coconut Creme Cake

1 box white cake mix
1 8 1/2 oz can creme of coconut


Frosting:
2 c heavy whipping cream
1/4 sugar
coconut for topping

Make cake according to directions on box, but just using egg whites. I also always use milk (2% or whole) instead of water. Pour cake into 2 9" pans. Bake for 18 min at 350, or until done. When done, poke holes in cake layers with toothpicks or fork tines and pour cream of coconut over cake layers. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove cooled layers from pan. Frost with sweetened cream in between layers, on tops and sides. Sprinkle with coconut.

For the frosting: Whip 2 cups heavy whipping cream and sugar in chilled bowl and chilled beaters until thick. Do not over whip.

More fun Easter memories tomorrow!
