I gotta be honest...

We made these goodies a few weeks ago at Community Living...
 I can't say for sure though which part I was more excited about...
 The cookie bowl with sprinkles ready to go...
 Or the ice cream they were later filled with!
I honestly have to say it's gotta be the best of both worlds!  I used the recipe found here. Check it out...oh and use mini-chips, experience says it works WAY better!

What? No Cake???

I got a call for a birthday party asking me if we HAD to make cupcakes...I was a little confused. What do you mean, you don't want to make cupcakes??? Of course I love baking and decorating cupcakes so the idea of not doing them is just so crazy! Eventually I determined that the birthday girl just doesn't like cake...hmmmm...something to think about there eh?!

While we were thinking we did some Shrink Art...that always puts me in a good mood!
And they were such good artists too!
We made fun hairbands!
Then we got out the BIG mixer! And started whipping something special up...
And we started crushing!!! 

After the whipping was done we poured it into a pan and made marshmallows (google it, there are loads of ideas out there!) Then we used cookie cutters to cut the mallows, dipped them in chocolate (as inspired by Hungry Happenings)...
And then the graham crumbs...
This is the stuff life is made of...
The S'mores were SO yummy! And super fun too! And well, I rarely say no to a challenge! ;)

Easter Fun at Community Living

A few weeks ago we started work on these baskets...we planted grass seed to make natural Easter Grass, wrapped balloons with yarn and made eggs to fill them...I just love how they turned out!

We attached cards so that they could be shared or even used as a centre piece...
This past week we made Cupcakes...we decorated our boards and made them springy! The Sheep Cupcakes were clearly a hit but the Mini-Eggs didn't last long on the table either!
All set to go home and enjoy a long weekend with family!
Happy Easter Everyone!

Leave 'em wanting...S'more!

I surprised my group at Community Living with Homemade Marshmallows this week! I made them in advance and then we decorated and packaged them up together! Who doesn't love S'mores?

We dipped our marshmallows in melting chocolate and covered them with graham crackers, sprinkles and lots of Springtime colours!
Since I had S'mores on the brain...we did a coordinating scrapbook page. Scrapbooking seems to be a favourite among the group so we squeeze in extra days whenever we can!
Everyone coloured their fires and signs, embossed those 'mallows and put it all together!
My weekly visits to Community Living are always lively and fun! Everyone there is welcoming and excited to see what I bring in my basket week after week!
