Bunny Buns - Easter Weekend

I totally thought I was just gonna make one kind of sweet roll this weekend, but then I finally got my April edition Friend magazine and saw this:

You can find a link to it here: Bunny Buns @ Friend Magazine

And I couldn't resist. So, I decided to make two kinds of sweet rolls and I'm so glad I did. I made the Bunny Buns together with the kids. I let Kailea roll up and twist the dough. She and Ella also got to help with kneading the dough. That was fun. Next time I'm gonna loosen up even more and let her crack the eggs - she's gotta learn sometime, right?

The making of bunny buns - see I'm not doing all the work, Ella is putting decorations on...

Here are our bunny buns... I gotta tell ya - the hardest part was putting the decorations on the finished roll... well, actually the hardest part was eating just one and putting the rest away for later... but you know what I meant, right ;)

yum yum  - bunny buns

I pretty much followed the recipe exact, the one minor adjustment I did was I added a wee bit of vanilla extract to the glaze - everything else I did follow to a T. The dough was excellent and I love the citrus smell throughout the house.

This one turned out the best... then we got lazy.

I totally want to make this my Easter tradition just like that family did - that's mentioned in the inside front cover of the Friend. Our family is young and we need some good holiday traditions like these.

Here we have our Picasso-style bunny buns - the kids being quick to finish - they just wanted to eat one already - and I did, too.
Stay tuned... next week I 'll show you the other sweet roll we made this weekend - they tasted like Toaster Strudels... and Kailea and I made one that looks like an Amish girl with a braid :)

I am making these Easter weekend again (2013) and I am not letting Kailea crack the eggs. Apparently, I haven't lightened up yet. Not only that, but I'm using the bread maker to make the dough - boy I've got lazy.
