Bunny Heart Cookies

The kids loved making shamrock cookies out of hearts and we have been trying to think of different things to make with hearts................we came up with this lovable bunny using four heart shaped cookies.
We first frosted all of the heart cookies with white butter cream frosting......................
We then placed two hearts slightly overlapping to create the front and back bunny feet.................
We used an upright heart for the ears...................................and then placed one final upside down heart on the ears and front legs.....creating the face! We were able to use our left over heart candy from Valentines day for the eyes and nose and we used a marshmallow for the tail!! We heart bunny cookies!!! Perfect for Easter~

Well as they say.......'March came in like a lion and out like a lamb'....we had some windy rainy weather but I am happy to report that it looks like Spring has sprung and I am really ready for it! I am also happy to report that I found the most amazing chocolate rocks by Maggie Lyon Chocolates....this 'Lyon' is here to stay, I love how the rocks look so real and they are sooo delicious!!

Spring Floral Cake

I have been playing around with spring centerpieces....there are so many celebrations during Spring....Easter, Mother's day and we have many birthday's in our family too! I want to try out some new ideas this season so I gathered some flowers from my garden and created a floral cake!
I used floral blocks to create a tower and then placed the flower stems in each section.........
I even used flower candles.....a beautiful cake that is completely fat free!!

Tisket a Tasket a Green and Yellow Basket

A tisket a tasket a green and yellow basket...I wrote a letter to my love.......I start singing this song and the kids run to me--I started a new tradition this year.......I made a green and yellow basket for the seven lucky days before St. Pat's--every day the kids get a green envelope with a lucky note saying something fun that we are going to do or make that day.....and sometimes they get REALLY lucky like their notes last Friday that got them a day off from school to go to Sea World!! This is a fun tradition that I hope to carry on!! Happy St. Pat's day everyone!!

Shamrock Cookies

We made St. Pat's day sugar cookies today.........We made them using three cut out hearts that we pinched together in the center of the cookie around the stem that we made using scrap cookie dough. We glazed the cookies and then added sprinkles and rainbow licorice!! The kids thought it was so cool that the hearts created a shamrock and they loved eating them of course!!

St. Pat's Day Bouquet

I love creating treat bouquets--probably because I would rather have sweets than flowers! I used mini cupcakes to create this green treat bouquet--I placed green jelly beans in a vase to anchor the skewers. I then placed mini cupcakes on the top of a skewer with a large gum drop under the cup cake to keep them from sliding down the goodness!!
I am excited to share a fun St. Pat's day game with you tomorrow--stay tuned!!
