Welcome to my blog! I am so excited for my first blog post to be the week before Easter. It's a holiday that I have come to love, not only because of the meaning that it has for me, but also because it is a reminder that spring, my favorite season, is here!
My first spring sweet were these fondant topped calla lilly cookies.
These cupcakes were delicious, even if I do say so myself. They were chocolate caramel, vanilla creme brulee, and strawberry banana topped with cream cheese frosting. I added a few fondant flowers to each. I especially loved the little basket cupcake holders.
I did these flowers and eggs to tuck in some Easter baskets. As I was making the cookies, my 4 year old son thought they were for him. When I wrapped them up and got them ready to go, he said to me, "Mommy!What are you doing with the cookies?!" He was a little sad that they weren't for him. . .
Now, you might be thinking that these little chicks are too cute to eat. I can assure you, they are not.
I decided to do these chicks after wanting to use the egg shape cookie cutter for something other than eggs. I didn't really mean for their eyes to come out all "crazy" looking, but they did, and I think it sorta gives them even more character.
I wanted to make more sweet treats for spring and Easter, and I still have so many ideas in my head. Alas, they will have to wait until next year. . .
