L.A. Burdick’s Easter Egg Hunt
Practically every Easter element imaginable comes together in this bucolic centerpiece from L.A. Burdick: teensy white-chocolate bunnies scamper through a (sadly inedible) lawn in search of marzipan carrots and crispy chocolate eggs. Two oversize dark-and milk-chocolate rabbits (not pictured) also come along for the ride.
