Happy Easter

I’m back again 🙂 I had another special request for a birthday – this time it falls on Easter. Some friends of mine made their own custom invites for their daughter’s birthday that had a really great color palette. They sent me a digital copy of the images of the eggs on the invitation so I could try to match the colors.

Here are the images from the invitation:

And here is what I came up with:

Matching colors can always be a challenge, but I think I was pretty close on these. The darker the color, the harder it is to match without using too much coloring. One thing to always keep in mine when making royal icing is that the colors become richer and more vibrant after they sit for a while – at least a few hours, if not overnight. The navy blue originally looked more like a dark grayish-blue to me. But once I let it sit overnight, I was very pleased with how it turned out.

I have 2 more batches I need to get moving on this weekend. Shapes that I haven’t done before and one is actually to use as a fundraiser at my nephew’s school. Stay tuned!

Chillin’ with my Peeps

I didn’t get a chance to make many Easter cookies this year since I planned a vacation for this week, but I bought some Peeps® cookie cutters a couple months ago and I wasn’t about to let the season pass by without trying those out.  I feel like some people either love the Peeps® candy or hate it.  I am definitely a big fan.  There are very few things out there made purely of sugar that I don’t like 🙂

I hope you all have a great Easter and enjoy some sweets of your own!  Have a great weekend!
