Thank You Easter Bunny

Easter 2011 was our first as a little family of three and it could not have been a better day! It was filled with tons of family, food, colored eggs and sweet treats made by me!

I was asked to create a fun spring dessert display for our Easter celebration and I knew at once what I wanted to do! I used a family sugar cookie recipe that isn’t to sweet and super soft! I baked the cookies on sticks turning them into cookie pops! I then made royal icing from scratch which was a pain, but worth it and detailed each cookie to look like daises. The outcome was very cute!

Of course being flowers I needed to plant them in a pot. I placed a bit of foam inside the flower pot. Then was able to stick the pops upright to look like they were growing. I added detail with ribbon, grass and some bunny clips.

I love the photo of Ryan chewing up his first cookie!
