Happy Friday! I’m leaving you this weekend with a fun little project you can do with your kids, or your friends’ kids, or just your friends. (I have a wide demographic of readers, so you know where you fit in.) 😉
The other day I baked up the miniature soft frosted sugar cookies and decorated them into Easter egg nests. They turned out pretty cute if I say so myself! The only change I had to make in the original recipe was to thicken the icing up (just by adding more powdered sugar) so that it was at a better piping consistency and not so runny. This way, I could use the star icing tip to create the grass.
Another tip? If you want to be more cost-effective with these, use the jelly eggs found at Walmart (pictured above) for only $1.00 instead of the chocolate eggs (pictured below) that are close to $3.00 (or more than $3.00 at Target). The batch makes a large amount of cookies, and I ran out of the chocolate eggs. When I made a quick run to Walmart, I discovered the cheaper jelly eggs and found they were just as adorable!
Living in a tightly knit neighborhood with a GAH-zillion kids is fun for me right now. These kids are perfect for sharing fun projects like this.
They love their cookies! I may or may not be bribing them for the title of favorite mom on the block. 😉 I also brought some to the child care workers at my gym. Yep, I might also be the favorite gym mom, too…
