Post Easter goodies!

These probably should have been posted before Easter, but since I just finished them yesterday, that was not going to happen.  I originally saw this idea on The Partiologist blog.  This girl can throw parties like no other AND she makes amazing cookies to boot!

What makes these so fun?!  Not only is there a yummy cookie on top but it's what you can't see that kicks these up a notch!  There is a little chocolate cupcake baked right in the terracotta pot (with a cupcake liner in the bottom to cover the hole)...cute, huh?!  The original version showed just carrots in the pot, but I decided to do an Easter egg and flower as well...and I could not resist adding those little lady bugs!

I totally cheated and used store bought icing for the cupcakes and colored it green myself.  Put the "grass" on the cupcake and pushed the decorated cookie down in.  If I were to do this again, I would

1. Use a little smaller cookie cutter.

2.  Put those smaller cookies on a stick, so that you could easily insert them, yet they would sit up higher in the pot.  Live and learn!

So whatch'a think?!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies! Photobucket

Ooooo, I am pinning this idea :>) Love your suggestion to add a stick to the cookie. Would be so cute as flowers growing in the pot. Perfect for Mother's Day or a shower. Yum!!!
