Sweet Treat Thursday -- Edible Centerpiece... Yuuuuummmm!

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!

Hi everyone,

Boy o-boy, today was a new adventure for me. Anybody who's been to dinner at my house knows that really enjoy cooking. Baking? Now that's a different story all together. But I was determined to get this project done. I put on my Betty Crocker cap and, full steam ahead, delved into the realm of edible art.... yeah, well... what passes for edible does not necessarily mean perfectly beautiful. For a perfectionist like myself, that's a big undertaking.

Anyways, enough ramblin' on. Here's my edible Forest Friends centerpiece:

I saw these cute little mushrooms from the paper pony and I knew I had to try them. They're made with marshmallows and donut holes, or commonly know as Timbits! Add some red candy melt and a few white chocolate chips and you're done.... right?!

Yeah, mine didn't turn out as well as what I've seen. There are specks of white in the red candy melt (is it because I put the finished glazed donuts in the fridge to harden?), the white chips are supposed to be flat but I couldn't find them so I had to poke into the doughnut and that resulted in a few mishaps :-)

But at the end of the day, it's all good. It makes for quite an exciting centerpiece, don't you think? It's yummy, it's cute and there are funny little critters from the Forest Friends stamp set lurking amongst the mushrooms.

Yup, Betty Crocker I ain't but I can make a mean Chicken à la crème.

Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee
