Sometimes I get nostalgic for the days before I was a successful party planner. In those days I had more time than money and would revel in the idea of creating something out of basically nothing. I remember scrounging supplies to make peanut creches when we first moved to California. That was over 25 years ago, but I still remember sitting at our little kitchen table, glue gun in hand, fussing over little angel wings and fluffy sheep like it was yesterday. I was in heaven. Little did I know it was foreshadowing what would become my livelihood.
I've always been entranced by cute, creative, usable things - food, decor, adornments - I'm all over it. I'm the queen of centerpieces with a purpose; be they edible, donate-able or giveaways. So when it came time for my annual Thanksgiving "You Made It" I wanted something that showcased all the cute little food items that are out there on Pinterest.
Luckily, Kids Kubby (love the name) has done all the work for me. Sadly, I can't give a shout out to the author because the site doesn't have an "about" page. But I can tell you this - whoever created the site is my hero. Anyone who dedicates a post to recipes featuring Pillsbury Cresent Rolls gains my ultimate respect.
You are going to find so many fun little treats in this link - from candy/cookie combos (tons of turkey ideas and an awesome array of acorns) to rice cereal treat sculptures (featuring turkey legs that would make Henry the Eighth proud) to delightful ice cream cone creations (teepees and horns-a-plenty), awesome corn facsimilies (the incredibly intricate ear of corn created by Spoonful is a feast for the eyes), and even a few "healthy" treats (my personal favorite is the popcorn turkey carcass).
Be warned...I did have a little trouble with some of the links, however, the photos are so good that most crafty folks will be able to figure out the techniques necessary. If not, drop me a line and I'm sure I can send you and e-mail that will walk you through it. If you enjoy making treats like these, this is bound to be a post you'll want to gobble up.
Here's wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving, and if not a post to pique your creativity, at least it's a feast for your eyes.
