In the spirit of Christmas being a season and not just a day, here is another (though probably the last) post in my 'Church Decor' series.
Maybe it's just me, but I consider the food at a function to be part of the "decor." I say that lightly, but in the spirit of our Christian Womanhood teacher in college, who said that "Eye appeal is half the meal!" When I'm on Pinterest, one of the main things I'm looking for is creative food. (BTW, follow me there if you don't already!) I actually saw the idea for melted snowman cookies on a blog that is no longer updated, and then I saw them on Pinterest too. I knew right away that I wanted to make them!
They were actually very easy to make! The trickiest part is making sure you don't over-cook the marshmallows in the microwave. I used icing scribblers to make the scarves and decorating gel to make the arms and facial features. I loved how, as I decorated them, they took on personalities! Take a peek at this little fellow:
|"It's hopeless....it's so warm in here...I'm just going to melt away."|
And this little fellow:
|"Well, I'm hoping for the best...at least I've still got my buttons and my arms!"|
And how about this poor little guy:
|"I don't feel good...I think I have a fever...and my scarf dye is running."|
Some of them are looking up, hoping for the best...
I took two trays of these ailing snowmen to our ladies' Christmas fellowship night. I found it funny that hardly anyone ate them- but they wanted to take one home. :)
Did you make any creative food this season?Leah
