Who doesn’t love an adorable white bunny being pulled from a hat? We thought long and hard about what to make for a magic themed party. It’s hard to come up with something other than playing cards and the good old bunny out of a hat!
Do you believe in magic? Well, we do, especially when we’re able to (successfully) repurpose a cookie cutter and use it for multiple shapes! Here’s what we used…a giant bunny cutter (Note: We used this cutter one other time to make grapes. You can check it out here)
Then we hand cut the hat:
Next we had to decide on a color scheme. Now, generally a top hat is black, but we don’t like how it turns the kids’ mouths black. We opted for a gray hat to avoid the black faces at the party. Here is how the fluffy bunny came to life:
All in all, we loved how cute they turned out, what do you think … are they magical enough? Hope your have some magical summer plans!
What do you give someone who has taught your children to harmonize for years?
A choir, of course! (And in our case, an edible one)!
Our many thanks goes to Judy for her hard work and dedication to the harmony of the youth singers at our temple and beyond!
Don’t you just love these gals?
The school bell will be ringing for the last time this year and many kids will be promoting to the next grade level whether it be Elementary, Middle, or High School. We made these fun cookies because everyone still enjoys the signature symbols of graduation. We took a stab at a fun stick figure graduate. The other confetti and scroll design tutorials can be seen on Sweet Sugar Belle’s blog. MAZEL TOV to all friends and their children!
About a month ago we were contacted by Mollie Makes Magazine, a U.K. “lifestyle and craft magazine for those who live and love handmade” (http://www.molliemakes.com/). The magazine was interested in including our Downton Abbey cookies (or “biscuits”) in their Spring/Summer Wedding Bookazine for pages dedicated to Themed Weddings.
We are so excited to be included in this wonderful publication dedicated to taking a look inside the “homes of the world’s most creative crafters”!
We have taken a couple of photos of the magazine cover and the inside photo of our cookies and byline. See our original Downton Abbey post here: http://yentamamas.com/the-dowager-countess-of-grantham-returns-downton-abbey-cookies/
Enjoy and let us know what you think about this really special inclusion, thank you, Mollie Makes!
It’s that time of year again…Teacher Appreciation Week! Where to start? There are so many ideas to choose from…Let’s see: Thanks for helping us bloom (See last years post here); Who’s the best teacher? (mini owl cookies would be so cute) and I could go on and on.
This year the room moms decorated the classroom door with butterflies that the children had made and it hit me….mini butterflies in a jar with a message that says, “Thanks for helping us spread our wings and fly!” Most importantly, I love butterflies and I’ve been waiting for a good excuse to use the mini cookie cutter. We decided on blue, green, and orange. Hope you like these mini beauties.
We added some coordinating hearts because they are always a favorite!
Traditional images come to mind when a young person is called to read from the Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
And so of course we were honored and excited to make some special cookies for such a special occasion … but where to start?
Believe it or not, it was our first time using the Torah Scrolls and truthfully, we weren’t sure, especially after our first layer of flooding when Blanche (5 year old) informed us she thought they were Popsicles! Oy vey!
Later, we would have to say these we’re our favorites, fully complimenting our white Stars of David draped with Tallit (prayer shawls), along with the traditional saying of congratulations, Mazel Tov!
Let us know what you think!
