I'm back!! I know, I know. I've been gone a while. Why? Well, I'll tell more on that later. For now, I thought I'd share a quick tip. I live in an area that isn't known for specialty food shops. That means, I have to get creative if I want to "fancy up" my baked items. But one evening while eating at Cracker Barrel, I noticed that they have a lot of fun, hard to find inexpensive candies and food decorations. Sometimes you can find random food sprinkles and things at Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx, but Cracker Barrel carries seasonal candy and at least with Cracker Barrel, you know the candies are still fresh and tasty.
Check out what I picked up today:
They always have cute little seasonal toys too which is a bonus. That chick chirps when help in your hands. It's very cute and believe it or not, it was only 2 cents more at Cracker Barrel then at Walmart. Those cute little Peas & Carrots Jelly Bellies will be used to decorate the tops of Carrot Cake Cookies that I'm sending in to my son's teachers (I'll be posting more on that in a few days). Those huge candy buttons will make their way onto my son's birthday cake. The Jam is for my hubby. He loves that stuff.
I'll be posting more real soon so be sure to check back!
