Easter begins early

Bean and Sister very much enjoy doing seasonal baking projects with me. We make decorated sugar cookies for nearly every holiday. (My collection of colored sprinkles takes up an entire cabinet shelf.) We make pumpkin cupcakes for Halloween, blueberry muffins in the early summer, candy cane ice cream after I undecorate the Christmas tree--you get the drift. So when I saw this idea on Angry Chicken I knew it was perfect for my girls.

Aren't these adorable? They're super easy, too, even for toddlers. Just watch out for little girls who like to lick their fingers while doing the nest shaping. 'Cause you don't want a spitty nest.

Happy Easter! Happy spring!

My stupid. freaking. good-for-nothing. computer at work will not allow me to look at the picture, or go that website, and as I'm already a woman on the edge due to that wonderful time of month, I'm not a happy camper! But, I will look when I get home. I love your ideas. You and I would get along so well together. Baking, cooking, sewing, gardening. What could be better?

Those look so fun and tasty. I'm not sure if I'll be ambitious enough this year, but maybe next year.
