Right now I’m in the midst of St. Patrick’s Day cookies and a bunch of other non-seasonal custom orders, so the thought of a new Easter cookie is a very welcome one! Thanks to Haniela for inviting me to participate in the Easter Extravaganza, a collection of Easter treats and crafts from talented food and craft bloggers.
My first thought for an Easter project was of course bunnies and eggs and Easter baskets, but then I thought…everyone’s going to do that! I had another idea, then another, and then it came to me.
Those heads are actually called Moai. Some are just heads protruding from the ground and a lot of the Moai are arranged in lines facing inward.
Now, do you know how Easter Island came to be called EASTER Island?
It was discovered by Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen on Easter Sunday in 1722. The real name of the island is Rapa Nui. The native people are also called Rapa Nui. It’s one of the most remote islands in the world and is part of the Polynesian Triangle.
I did some research to see how long it would take to get there and how much it would cost…20 hours to Chile, then another 6 hours to Easter Island. You can figure out the cost.
Needless to say, it is now very high on my list of places to visit!
I decided on a cookie “diorama” with bunnies and eggs, which are not indigenous to Easter Island. They are, however, in my cookie version!
There’s a lot to learn about Easter Island, and I could spend a week studying it, but then who would make the cookies?
Enjoy all the Easter treats and thanks again Hani!
