This week’s collection is luxurious and indulgent. It’s impractical and irresistable. Dark chocolate molded bunnies, a white silk toddler dress, chocolate cupcakes with white fondant decoration, brown eggs with love notes inside, white tulips . . . I love it. LOVE it.
I picked up some plastic Easter molds and used chocolate easy melts to make solid bunnies, white candy lambs, and cute, little chickies. Have you used these molds before? I’ll show you how easy it is, this week.
This dress is just, well, the most beautiful little thing I’ve ever made. I’m sure there are plenty of you shaking your head at me with my dry clean only, all white, toddler dress. But….if you saw it in person, you might just admit that its gorgeousness trumps all practical rationale for why one shouldn’t make a child’s dress from white silk. I’ll tell you more about it this week.
I’ve seen this note in an egg trick before. But I forgot about it. That’s the beauty of Pinterest. I rediscovered it last week and it fit perfectly into my theme this week.
I don’t really think you can have an Easter collection without tulips, do you? They so gracefully say “spring.” I’m trying to force a pile of daffodils in my kitchen, since I didn’t plant the bag of bulbs in the fall. So far, I have one cheery, yellow flower. Do you have a favorite spring flower?
In the works for this week: the dress details and brooch tutorial, cupcake decorating with fondant and molded chocolates/candies, and the fun note-in-an-egg craft!
So, tell me…do you support impracticality in the name of beauty?
