Spring or Easter Decorated Cookies

My kids had the day off today, so we spent the day baking and decorating cookies. It is always fun at the beginning but then by the end, I'm usually sick of it. The boys didn't last quite as long as I did. That's the way it usually goes. They are all gung-ho and then they make two cookies and they are then done. The sure love eating the dough though!

So, here are the cookies we made. We traced the cookie cutter and the boys designed their cookies before they decorated them. This gave them an idea of what to make before they started trying to make things with the icing. Icing isn't quite as forgiving as colored pencils. You can see below both the drawings and the cookies. So cute!

These are my 9-year-old's eggs. He did a pretty good job! Of course, how Meta Knight and Warrior Skeletons have anything to do with Spring or Easter, I don't know!

These are my 7-year-old's eggs. He was bored more quickly. Cute though!

If you would like the recipe for the icing, you can find it HERE.

Have fun!

Winter Strawberries

Have you ever made these?  They are called Winter Strawberries and they are SO tasty!  My kids love them and they really brighten up a plate of cookies at Christmastime.  They are also pretty on a plate for Valentine's day.   Frankly, they'd be great in the middle of summer too.  They make a great gift if you have one of those plastic pint-sized containers that fruit comes in and you put them in it and cover it with plastic wrap and a rubberband. 
Here's how to make them.  Super SIMPLE!
1½ cup Finely chopped grated pecans; (or walnuts)

1½ cup Finely grated coconut

3 packs (3 oz.) size Jello ; (strawberry)

1 can (14 oz.) Eagle brand sweetened condensed

1 teaspoon Vanilla

⅓ cup Red sugar

Combine all ingredients (except red sugar). Mix well, chill for 1 hour. Then form mixture into strawberry shapes and roll in red sugar to coat. Make green leaves with green icing that comes in tube or can from grocery.  {I used green sugar to make my leaves}

Butterfly Cupcake Wrappers

I made these cute little cupcake wrappers today and thought I would share them with you all. I just love how they turned out, but I should have been a little more careful with the cutting out of the circles. I was in a big hurry.... you take your time! So, here is what they will look like on your cupcakes. Love them!

Seriously! How Cute are These Cupcake Wrappers?

I just love how these turned out. I wasn't sure because I made the wrappers and posted them without trying them out first. Now that I have, I say USE THEM! They are super cute.
Sorry about the bad lighting, but it is dark outside and I had to use my flash.

YUM! They taste as yummy as they look!
By the way, how fun is it that these match my blog? {I planned that.... not!}
