Peep Stew Pictorial, a WINNER and a PEEP GIVEAWAY....whew!

Hi Peeps.

Want to know how to make "Peep Stew"?

Thought so.

I have to give "props" to one of my blogger "peeps" for inspiring the idea. Please visit Christy at From Glitter to Gumdrops for her great bunny stew. 

Once I saw it, the clouds parted, the angels sang and I knew instantly I loved this gal.

I also knew I had to adapt it "cupcake style". 

First grab your favorite color Peep.  Mine is pink.

Bake a Cupcake and call it a "Pot" to make your "Stew" in.  

Stick your poor unsuspecting Peep in the Stew...

Poor guy, he has NO idea what is in store for him.

Next, for added cuteness, make a fondant spoon. 
(feel free to omit this cuteness)

Now, what do you need to make a great stew? 

Classic stew ingredients of course!  Peas, carrots, tomato, barley, salt, pepper, name a few. 

I know you could think of many, many more great ideas.

At some point you will need to introduce your Peep to the stew ingredients.

What are you waiting for??  Add your desired ingredients to the stew!

YUM!  Enjoy.

My daughter and I had a blast putting this together. 

We think this would be a fun edible craft project for Easter Weekend.

Or, in our case, a Peep inspired impromptu Tea Party.  We need little excuse for a Tea Party at our house.

On another FUN note, let me tell you who I chose for the second set of Americolor Markers.  Thank you for all the great cupcake story ideas. 

I chose LARK (Sparky Larky) from Lark's Country Heart because I happen to be partial to the cancer plight.  I am a cancer fighter and so far brain tumor survivor. Her passion for breast cancer research and support inspires me.  Visit her blog, you will be inspired too.

I hope this Peep Stew inspires you to think of what YOU could do with a box of Peeps. 

Short on ideas?  That's ok!  This book will help you out!

Just leave a comment and tell me your favorite color Peep.   

I will use and this book will ship to you via

I appreciate your comments very much. Please feel free to share this on facebook, twitter or with your friends. 

Also I linked up to Tip Junkie!  Go check out all the GREAT ideas here:
