    These are adorable! What a great one to have the kids help decorate and then eat! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Oh my!! So cute!! Where do you find edible Easter grass? I was thinking that shredded coconut might work, or possibly some of those sour green straws.

    • You can find it in the cake decorating section of a craft store, from Target.com in the link above (or in some Target stores), but any green candy would work if cut in a small piece.

  3. That’s a realy cute idea! And it doesn’t look super hard to do!

  4. What a super cute idea. And they look like something I could totally do!

  5. Those are adorable! And even better they look like something I could do! Not sure I could do the antena, but the rest looks completely doable! Thanks!
