- Bake your favorite pan of brownies and cut them into squares. Take a small cookie cutter, cut out the center and fill with frosting. Use a cookie cutter for each different holiday; a heart for Valentine’s Day, a four leaf clover for St. Patrick’s Day or an egg or a rabbit for Easter. You can also use the appropriate color of frosting for that holiday.
- Make Rice Krispy treats. Using food coloring, color them red, green or pastel — once again, the colors for that holiday. When they are done, use a cookie cutter to cut them out into hearts, clovers, eggs, rabbits etc.
- If you aren’t an artist but would like to decorate a theme cake, try using your cookie cutters as a pattern. Lightly press the cookie cutter on to the frosting of the cake. You can then pipe frosting around the outline or fill in your pattern.
- Make up some lemonade and stir into a little Kool Aid to color it – red (raspberry, strawberry, cherry flavor) for Valentine’s Day, green (lime) for St. Patty’s Day or blue for the 4th of July.
