We usually don't do ham or turkey except on Christmas and Thanksgiving. I like ham, but we cook other things. I've been making this HUGE bunnny cake (with a body AND head AND ears! Lol) since I was a kid and every Easter, it's become a tradition. It takes forever because I have to bake 3 cakes in a round pan. I cut a bow tie and two huge ears out of one cake and the other is the head, the last his body. Always a strawberry cake! I add coconut to make him look furry, but sometimes I'll just make my own strawberry icing with real strawberries and powdered sugar. That is the best icing! I love it. I'll be making him tomorrow
Then someone usually brings potatoe salad (my grandmother) and cookies, and the normal stuff like that. We have a lot of kids in my family so Easter is always a big and very fun day
