first up ... cookies (yes, I know it's not a cake, but it still involves frosting)
It all started with a cookie cutter I found at my local cake decorating supply store. Can you guess what it is? If you said it's a tie .... you're correct; the best part is it cost me $1.50, it's only about 3 inches long, I didn't measure it.
I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and made a ton of these little babies. The kids helped decorate. I frosted and they dipped it in sprinkles ... they got a little fancy with the sprinkles.
Notice the different patterns in the sprinkles and multiple types of sprinkles on different ties.
These poor ties broke in the decorating process ... may the rest in pieces (and in my tummy)
more ties ... just because I can
Here's the surprise for daddy ...
we covered a can of soda for him
featured below is an origami t-shirt with a paper print out of a tie, fancy right :)
it was taped on a can, that was wrapped in blue paper and decorated with more ties
BUT ... the thing that made that pop top can special was the contents
we emptied a can of pineapple and filled it with some of daddy's favorite candies.
Happy Fathers Day
