End of the Year Picnic

Today, we had the end of the year picnic for my son's class. We were assigned to take the veggies (carrots and celery sticks) for the children. I packed them in cellophane bags with small containers of Ranch dressing. I added a "veggies and ranch" sticker. It is an easy, different and pretty way to present healthy snacks. You can use them for birthday parties or school snacks.

Cookies on a stick

I have been spending time preparing for my classes. Did I mentioned them before? Well, when you organize parties you have to do a lot of stuff. I ended making cupcakes, cookies and cake balls for my parties and I decided to improve my designs by learning some cake decorating techniques. It is time consuming, but it is a lot of fun!

Yesterday, I promised the kids to play with them in the kitchen. We baked some cookies on sticks. They called them "lolli-cookies". We made royal icing in bright colors: orange, blue and yellow and used some fondant in shapes. The designs were easy, but pretty. This was the result...
