Easy Christmas Wreath Cookie


Easy Christmas Wreath Cookie






I had some left over round chocolate
cookies so I took a smaller round 
cookie cutter and popped out the 
centers and added the M&Ms 
and the leaves as you see here!

I got the Holly Leaves at Michaels


Viola!

Done!

Cute and Easy.

Stacked "Tangled Lights" Christmas Tree Cookies!



Stacked Tangled Lights Christmas Tree Cookies



The assembly was pretty easy. 

I cut out the various circles shapes from the cookies
and adhered them together with a touch of Royal Icing. 

Then I piped the green "light wire" and
added the "lights".  I used chocolate covered
sunflower seeds but you could use any type of 
rainbow sprinkle - how cute!



The star was cut out of fondant, but you
can also use one from paper too!

Merry Christmas!

Virtual Rainbow Baby Shower for Meaghan Mountford ~ The Decorated Cookie! Marshmallow Baby Pops!!


Marshmallow Baby Pops
Today is a GREAT day!!  

I get to join an amazing group
of talented bloggers to celebrate a Virtual Baby Shower
for someone VERY special to me... 

Please bear with the wordy post, but
this gal is pretty darn special. Not just to me
but also to my 8yr old daughter, Sophia Rose. 
  
I "met" Meaghan by way of her gig as the 
Edible Crafts editor when I submitted one of my
very first blog posts to be considered for their site.
 I was shocked when my post was accepted. 

She took a chance on a newbie blogger and even emailed
me some words of support and encouragement. 
It was awesome and I will never forget how that felt! 

From there on I became a huge fan and a friendship blossomed.
One of my VERY favorite things about Meaghan is that the ideas on her blog are often "Mom-on-the-run" and "Kid" friendly. 
You often don't need a bunch of fancy tools or mad
piping skills to create something fun with your kids.



That is more important to me than I can even 
express in words! When life turns hectic and 
Sophia and I need some "girl time".....I often find myself pulling out the edible food writers and some Marshmallows to let the conversation and creativity flow.   

It puts us both at peace and gives us smiles.   
  
When first asked to contribute to this project, I was so honored. As many of you know, Meaghan is known for her love of anything rainbow so the theme was pretty easy.....RAINBOWS!

I had planned to make a rainbow baby blanket cupcake but
Sophia had a different plan. When I told her about the cupcake idea, she insisted I change it because, "MOM! You always say that Meaghan is the decorated MARSHMALLOW Queen - you NEED to make something with a MARSHMALLOW!!"

How can I say no to that logic?



Marshmallow Baby Pops
  
  The assembly was pretty easy. 
I adhered everything w/ a dab or two of corn syrup.
The white spot in the middle of the candy necklace 
piece is a dab of royal icing. 
My candy necklaces did not have purple, so I took one of the
white pieces and colored it with my purple edible writer.
The rest is pretty obvious!
The sprinkles used were Wilton Hearts, Flowers 
and Confetti along with some Royal Icing eyes. 
        

As many of you know and for those of you who don't Meaghan has quite "decorated" medical history.  
So...you see this baby (Miss Violet is GORGEOUS!) 
is truly the pot of gold at the end of a RAINBOW!
    
    I am just so grateful to contribute to this project. 
This might not be the most fancy thing you will ever see, but
it comes from the heart and it reminds me of Meaghan and what
she represents for my daughter and I, the one and only...
DECORATED MARSHMALLOW QUEEN!

We love ya Meaghan!
Congrats on Baby Girl #2!
