Rice Noodle Easter Nests

March 28, 2012

Sticky, gooey, tasty, mess.  yum!

super easy and makes little girls happy!

we decided that since one batch makes about 18 nests and mom reeeeally doesn’t need 18 of these nests sitting in the kitchen all day that we’d package them for the girls’ teachers at school.

and the remainders we packed for hunny to bring to his team at work.  happy spring!

Edible Easter Centerpiece

March 26, 2012

Easter is sometimes my favorite holiday.  I don’t know if it’s the pretty colors or the start of spring, but if you ask me at this time of year what my favorite holiday is, it’ll be Easter.  Today I made a table centerpiece:

 

and it’s completely edible! weee!

i started with making the candy cups.  they are shaped around tiny little water balloons.

something shady happened and one popped all on its own.  ugh, mess.

i put them on a bed of edible Easter grass.  while the package says it’s edible, it’s kinda gross tasting.  the main ingredient is potato starch, they’re kinda like weird fruit flavored packing peanuts/rice cakes.  but edible.

i added plain m&ms, pretzel m&ms and cadbury mini eggs to the cups, made some candy and pretzel bunny faces and hineys, and added some peeps.  i have a love affair with peeps.  bunnies are my favorite, and i always loved the white ones but i haven’t been able to find them for years.  last month i actually emailed Just Born to see what the deal was, and *weepy tears* they don’t make them any more because they weren’t popular.  thanks a LOT, people.  ANYWAY,

 

i made a little bunny mix with popcorn, corn chex, pretzels, mini marshmallows, sprinkles, m&ms and leftover green chocolate candy.  This won’t make it to Easter, it’s too yummy we’ll have to make more!
