When we started the blog, we decided to have one sweet related ingredient for each month. Being from Canada, it only made sense to pick Maple for our first blogging month in March. Afterwards we made a list of our sweet ingredients for the next few months and decided on eggs for April. The obvious relation to Easter was a reason but also the fluffy decadent egg based sweets like meringue that reminded us of spring… Then we got hit by Martha’s Stewart April Living cover: beautiful colored eggs followed by Sweet Paul’s Spring 2012 issue featuring… gorgeous eggs on its cover as well. We thought we had to change our ingredient and do something more different but we were already so inspired so we said what the hen *pun intented* let’s stick to eggssssss!
That being said, here’s our inspiration board for April:
