Easter Treat

Hippity Hoppity! I hope your Easter baskets were filled with lots of sweets and love!

The Saturday of Easter weekend I was home and in the mood to bake so I decided to try something different. So I found these pans and gave it a whirl and I think they turned out pretty cute :) The frosting was a little runny but I know what I'd do differently next time around.

They were a bit hit and a nice snack sized treat for the family to munch on while waiting for Easter dinner!

Brody's Birthday Parties...

These fun pretzels were made by my sister Liz. Her friend asked her to make some pretzels for her son's 1st birthday and then again for his 2nd birthday.....

Brody's 1st birthday party was a sock monkey themed party. Liz dipped the pretzels in yellow and red and then used red and yellow sprinkles. And to finish them off, added the yellow and red ribbon.

Brody's 2nd birthday party was a "big truck" and construction theme. To capture the construction feel, Liz dipped in yellow and used orange sprinkles. The black and white ribbon gave the caution colored pretzels the road feel.

Hot Chocolate Cones

I found this idea on the web and knew I just had to duplicate it for my sisters baby shower. Her baby shower was in January and a very cold January at that. Each cone had enough hot chocolate ingredients to make 2 normal size cups of hot chocolate.

For the marshmellows the original sample had just plain white marshmellows, but since I was making them for the baby shower, I used the multi-colored marshmellows that were pink, yellow, and green. Using the multi-colors gave it a little added "baby shower" feel.
To add a little personal touch to the favors, I used microsoft word and created these little tags. I tied the tags to the cones with some baby shower ribbon.
They were a big hit!

Back at it!

Wow..I cant believe it has been 2 years since my last post. Time really does fly by!

Lots have happened in these two years for us that has captured my attention instead of on my sweet treats. Our biggest was buying our first house! Love it and everything that comes a long with it!

I also got wrapped up with some fun party planning. I love planning parties and being able to come up with creative ideas to add that special touch to the party. I threw my sisters baby shower and it turned out great (if I dont say so myself, hee hee!). I came up with some very cute decorating ideas and made some fun and warm favors. Be sure to check out the pictures of the "hot chocolate cones".

I am getting back on my sweet treats track...Stay tuned!
