As it is Easter time, I thought I’d have a quick look around for some retro-inspired Easter Eggs. This was the first thing that caught my eye!
The 1984 Smurf Wrap-an-Egg package encourages you to decorate 12 eggs in ‘just seconds’! It’s easy to do, there’s no fuss and no messy paints or dyes! So that’s a win for everyone, right?
Looking at the instructions, I’m pretty sure the children needed to be supervised for this task as you were required to dip the wrapper-on-egg combo into boiling water for 3 seconds. Once you were done, you would be the proud owner of some hard-boiled eggs with Smurf Wrappers atop… actually, I’m starting to think this was a raw deal for those craving a sweet treat!
There were also Rainbow Brite and Peanuts versions too:
Did any Retroist readers ever do these?
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter weekend. At least, most enjoyable than “Bunny Solo” here had:
“I love you, you tasty chocolate hunk, you.”

Hope you are wearing your finest as you stroll the avenue and are having a wonderful day.
To tell you the truth, if I saw a very large bunny at my window, in what appears to be the dead of night, I would be terrified as well. I like the way the girl thinks…get out of here now! She would survive a lot longer then the boy in an Easter horror film.
Great and might I add timely work by cake artist Kelly Lloyd on this wonderful cake. I look at a lot of themed cakes and I really like when the person making it takes the time to make the plate that the cake is sitting on match the theme of the cake. Something distracting about seeing a cool cake on a mismatched shiny silver disc. So bonus points to Kelly…
This cake is a chocolate chip cookie flavor, covered in fondant. The basket is fondant and filled with M&Ms of course!
