Pink and purple ... Fruit roll ups... Frosting and hearts. All that's missing is a My Little Pony and some Care Bears.
Really though, I was trying to make do with what I already had in the pantry. Does anyone else have a pantry full of left over chocolate chips, sprinkles, and coconut flakes? Mine is over flowing.
My goal this month (with the exception of some jello shots I have planned for up coming events) is to not buy any new decorative or boxed baked goods.
You really are forced to be creative when you can't run to the store to buy something new!
