With Easter right around the corner, I have been working on our Easter decorations. I saw these cute egg wreaths popping up everywhere and thought ….they look easy enough to make, so we tried. Sure enough, they were SUPER easy to do and the best part…..it was only $4.00 to make it. Not too bad in my book! All my supplies came from the Dollar Tree. I started with a grapevine wreath and 3 bags of pastel easter eggs.
This little bucket came from there too and so did the pin and I just attached it with some ribbon
So with today being Mardi Gras…I knew our dinner would not be complete without a king cake. Now, my son is a picky eater and doesn’t like to try new things and with his food allergies, I knew I had to make something that he could eat. One of his (and my) favorite things are Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls. I knew this would be perfect to make our king cake with. I took one can of cinnamon rolls and arranged them on the cookie sheet in a circle, like this.
Yup…it’s a cake!! Our Cub Scout pack had their Blue & Gold dinner last night and they had a cub/parent dessert contest with 5 categories. Of course my son wanted to enter the “Grossest Dessert” category! I really had no idea what I was going to make so I googled “gross desserts” and found a bunch! His favorite was the kitty litter cake. After looking at the recipes, (they all called for a cake and pudding mixture that I am sure is yummy but we’re not big pudding people over here) I decided just to bake a regular cake in a disposable aluminum cake pan (13×9). It only took a few supplies to make. Cake mix, icing, oreos (or any vanilla cookie, green food coloring and tootsie rolls
