Emma is turning 4 in 3 days exactly - we're not even going to go into that right now, but this past weekend we had two small parties for her. The first was a small kids bowling party and the second was spent at our house with her grandparents and great-grandparents and each of her aunts. The girls' are lucky as they have 6 sets of grandparents around, so I like to have grandparent only parties.
For each party we came up with different desserts to have. For the kids' I made some Jessie hats. Sorry for the off coloring it was 10pm the night before the party when I was doing these. These were super simple to make and a BIG hit with the kids!
Here's the simple how-to: Baked some break apart sugar cookies. Flip them over and smooth some red icing on them. Put a red gumdrop or similar shaped candy in the center. Pipe the lacing around the outside of the cookie in white. Ouila - you're finished!
