For this week's muffin tin meal, I continued my Easter-themed lunches and did a muffin tin version of the Resurrection Eggs.
The Resurrection Muffin Tin Meal included:
- lettuce leaves (palm branches)
- sour straw whips (the indian sour straws are too short to make into a crown of thorns)
- raspberry ice sugar free drink (blood)
- pancake cross
- whipped cream (heaven)
- pancake stone covering an empty tomb
- carrot stick sun
Even with cute presentation ideas, I am still having trouble getting Maggie to eat well. This one was a big success. She ate everything in this tin but the lettuce.
To make the stone over the tomb and the crosses, I put pancake batter in a clean syrup bottle and squeezed it onto the hot griddle. It still took me several times to get a good cross.
Here's a close up of the empty tomb.

Neat ideas for the theme!
Great tin, I love the theme!

I really like your ideas for this theme. My daughter won’t touch lettuce either, but she will eat baby spinach leaves (if we just call them “leaves”). She started eating them by pretending she was a giraffe – could be worth a try?
We also call baby spinach “leaves” and I have no trouble getting the boys to eat it.

Great idea and great for table conversation. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful idea. It will be a tradition for my family this Easter season.

Wonderful theme! Very well done. 🙂 I’ve been trying to figure out ways to present biblical Easter in food form for next week’s tin and this has given me some more ideas! Thanks for sharing!
