Disney has been a major part of my niece’s life and she’s a huge fan. She has decorated watermelon slices into the shape of Mickey Ears with a Popsicle stick inserted as handles. She has made princess cupcakes for her daughter’s birthday. Her mother, my sister cuts apples into flower designs, places on skewers sticks for the beautiful edible bouquet. I found a recipe to create Pilgrim hats from cookies, candy and icing.

By using some snack size milky way bars, some plain m&ms candies and a few teddy grahams, you can make these cute little cars for a child’s birthday party, or a Nascar themed event. The milk way is the body of the car, the m&ms are the wheels and the teddy graham is stuffed in at the top, toward the back as if it’s the driver.

You could also use a few sliced bananas, add some cut-up kiwi and add some halo pieces placed perfectly on a plate will create a summer themed treat. Your guests can enjoy fresh fruit around this beautiful display. (The banana makes the trunk of a palm tree, the kiwi makes up the top of the tree, while the tangelos pieces make up the sandy beach.

Another great idea that I have used at Thanksgiving is the fall foliage acorn. If you take a Hershey kiss, with a chocolate chip and half of a nutter butter round to create the perfect looking acorn favors. Placing the kiss, lightly melted to the nutter butter cookie and finish the top of the nutter butter with a small chocolate chip, lightly melted, so it sticks, will give you a cute little acorn to place on each dinner plate as a favor.
