Menu – Sheep Party

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.

The sheep cookies are too large and my piping skills are lacking but the kids did not complain and in general I am pleased.

    The food looks great – I love the cupcake sheep, they are so cute. The fruit snails are a fun idea too.
