Mini Bagels – I made plain, cinnamon sugar, a few poppy and salt. I found this recipe a few years ago. It is very popular with my guests. The kids at the party loved the mini bagels.
- Lamb butter – bought Malczewski’s Easter Butter Lambs at Tops Supermarket around Easter and put in our freezer
- Homemade Strawberry & Raspberry Jam
- Wegmans Strawberry Cream Cheese
Sheep Shaped Orange Sweet Rolls – Originally I was going to make the sweet roll sheep from scratch. I even did a test a few days before the party. But the night before I decided to just use Pillsbury’s Orange Sweet Rolls. We used two cans and made the sheep and had some extra sweet rolls. It was easy and the kids loved it. I scoured the internet for ideas on how to shape bread into sheep. I was influenced by this and this.
This photo is taken before the glaze and eyes. I find it difficult to get good photos during a party. But you get the idea.
Blueberries (served in sheep cups)
Snail Fruit (I often draw a snail with my cartoon sheep so I wanted to include a snail in the menu) – As you can see from the photo I did a simple version of the snail I found on this site.
Orange and Pineapple Juice
Sheep Cupcakes – I knew that I wanted to make sheep cupcakes. Again I searched the internet to learn from others. A Google image search for “sheep cupcake” provided many ideas. This was my inspiration (scroll down to individual cupcakes on plate). I made a cookie to resemble my cartoon sheep. A mini flower cookie cutter worked great for the head. The recipe is for chocolate and vanilla Teddy Bears from the 11/19/96 Family Circle magazine that I cut out. I have made the teddy bears many times with kids. I could not find the recipe online.
