Easter is not Easter at my home without carrot cake. I have made this cake before but it is so beautiful, I decided to repeat it. After all, isn’t it lovely?
Start with a tube of marzipan, an almond paste, and some food coloring.
Put a little of the food coloring in the marzipan and mix thoroughly.
Let your imagination run wild. With purple, you can make raddichio and eggplant
Or color it for carrots...
Or a bunch of carrots. I added the ridges with a dull knife. All the veggies, need leaves.
Or corn, making the kernels.
Roll small red balls and mark with a knife, an X on the top for the tomato.
Or roll an oblong red ball.. for watermelon.
Carefully roll out a piece of green marzipan and cover the red. Now you have a watermelon. Carefully cut in half.
Next, pulse a box of Oreo cookies, for your garden dirt.
I put it in a Ziploc Bag, cutting the end, making sure not to get any on the cream cheese frosting.
Now, you have a garden cake.....
without any weeding!!!
I put her on a pretty cake stand, ready for Easter Dinner.
