Holiday Ideas

Here are a few holiday decorations that I found that was cute and easy to do yourself.

Holiday CDs
Share the jolly sounds of the season with a customized CD, easily decorated and beautifully presented

Snowman Cupcake How-To
This snowman wears a fine winter hat: a chocolate-covered mint beret. His plump figure is two marshmallows -- cut a slice off the top one and squish to make it smaller. Dabs of icing hold parts together. His eyes are chocolate sprinkles (poke holes first with a wet toothpick), and his nose is cut from a gummy fish.

Picture This
Chocolate bars adorned with the faces of the bride and groom are sweet in more ways than one. Choose a few favorite photos, then print them using an ink-jet printer or photocopy onto lightweight paper. (Enlarge or reduce images if needed.) With a paper cutter, trim so photos are slightly shorter than candy bars. Remove outer wrappers but not inner foil. Wrap each candy bar with a photo, and secure in back with double-sided tape. Adorn with waxed twine tied in a small bow.

Sweet Treats
While you're baking this season, think about trying this idea. Tie decorated sugar cookies with ribbon to a miniature tree. Cookies can be nibbled on a day or two after hanging, but they'll continue to look good for weeks.
