Sunday dinner with family

Easter conjures up many images for me. Easter eggs, Easter Sunday dinner with family, baby chicks, lambs, the Easter Bunny… The list could go on and on. 
Dr. Oetkedecided to combine a couple of my favourite things from Easter and create an amazing edible six foot tall Bunny Bum which was placed on display in London. This chocolate lovers dream was commissioned by Dr. Oetker and crafted by baking expert Juliet Sear. Taking over 110 hours to create and using more than 3000 bars of Dr. Oetkers Fine Cooks’ chocolate, it brought a smile to commuters’ faces today in Potter’s Field Park.
This giant creation that shows the Easter Bunny’s Bum burrowing into the grass was constructed during a 10 day period and includes over 450kg of chocolate. Juliet made the giant creation piece by piece, allowing the parts to harden and dry overnight. She then finished the Bunny by attaching its 8 foot ears and feet which were prepared with Dr Oetker’s Fine Cooks’ White chocolate. 
When asked about her wonderful creation, Juliet said:
‘’During Easter everyone automatically thinks of chocolate eggs. When Dr. Oetker came to me wanting to champion the Easter bunny, I was excited to create something a little different. When you undertake such an ambitious project, quality ingredients are key to success. After some expected challenges with the first-time creation, my team and I had lots of fun and were all so proud to have completed it. Move over chocolate egg, there’s somebunny new in town!’’
So why am I telling you about this? Well apart from the fact that a giant bunny bum being constructed in the middle of London is just awesomewe were sent a recipe to create some Bunny Bum cupcakes ourselves! I’m not going to liethis recipe wasn’t the easiest one in the world but it gave some fantastic results and we managed to make cupcakes that would make a wonderful Easter gift and a great alternative to the traditional Easter eggs. 
This is what our Bunny Bum cupcakes should have looked like:

We included a little addition to our cupcakes to add more chocolate to it! We used the fabulous Dr. Oetker Surprise Inside Cupcake Centres in Rich Chocolate flavour.  This meant that when these yummy little cupcakes are bitten into, there is a delicious, gooey surprise in the middle. 
So what do you think? Will you be making your own Bunny Bum cupcakes this Easter? If you enjoyed this guest post by crokids  check out more at Hammocks

Ways that we do this:

  • Give Local Authorities and Land Owners a way to publish land use information and restrictions directly to the fliers

  • Provide consistent point of contact for Local Authorities and Land Owners by way of Local Area Representatives

Benefits for the members:

  • Advice and social chat via web forums
  • Fly-ins at different places to meet up with other fliers
  • Someone to help out with access disputes
  • Holidays and social events
  • Provide information about suitable sites and restrictions
  • Benefits in particular are constantly under review with new ideas actively sought. A number are presently under investigation

Why fly-ins?

  • To provide a regular meeting point for members
  • To provide somewhere for spectators and prospective members to meet us with dates & places published well in advance on the web site
  • To give access to advice from experienced flyers

Presence at organised events:

  • To promote the club and its activities
  • To raise public awareness of the sport in all its forms

All this is provided entirely voluntarily as a not-for-profit organisation. All costs are covered through sponsorship and fund-raising activities. We aim to keep SEKA free to join and inclusive of all kite disciplines.
