Whoa. I can't believe how long it's been since my last post. I never meant to take such a long break... in fact I have tons to post about! I've just been a little bit busy - mostly with traveling to IA for my sister's wedding. In fact, I never touched my computer for a whole week. But I'm baaack!
Wedding pictures will be coming soon, but first I wanted to share with you a fun little project to celebrate THE FIRST DAY OF FALL!
These little acorn cookies are so cute and so easy. The first time I saw them were on the blog Whimsy Love, when Nikki made them for her daughter's woodland themed birthday party. Later, I received the book What's New Cupcake? for Christmas from my parents - this book contains the orginal idea.
Anyway, I've seen these floating all around the internet now, but I made some for my sister's cake table at her outdoor wedding, so I just had to put together a little tutorial so you can make your own. [And you should, because they are sooo easy. And super adorable too!]
First, the ingredients.
You will need:
mini nilla wafers
mini chocolate chips
Simply stick the hershey's kiss to the mini nilla wafer with a dab of frosting. Then stick the mini chocolate chip to the top with another frosting dab. And you're done!
I stuck these in the fridge overnight so the frosting could get nice and hard. I didn't want my acorns falling apart on the long drive up to the wedding. And I had no trouble at all.
Here are the finished acorns at the wedding in all their glory. I didn't get many pictures because, let me tell you... these yummy little things didn't last long! Wedding guests were sneaking them left and right. I think they were practically gone before the bride and groom even cut their cake!
