Happy Meal Treats

I made these for my son's birthday party at school. I have heard of so many moms making them for treats, but have never seen one myself. I used a sandwich cake cookie for the bun , chocolate icing from a can for the burger, marshmallow fondant for the ketchup, mustard and lettuce. The french fries are shoestring potato chips. And, a juice box was good enough for a drink because it didn't need to be refrigerated. I also wrapped the burger in yellow tissue paper. If I would have had more time, I would have written hamburger on the tissue paper, but I don't think the kids cared. It was a great success! My son loves the extra attention from the teachers when they see my creations.

We're moving!

I have not been baking lately. Next week I will probably make treats for my son's baseball team, but other than that I have been posting pictures of other's creations. Why? We are moving in a few weeks and I have not been home enough to make treats. I also am trying to not make a mess and pack up the kitchen. I have a few posts to get my creations back on here, but I plan to take some time off from baking. In 4 weeks we are having a birthday party for my son, so I should have plenty to post from that.
