Mr. McGregor's Marshmallow Carrots

These Marshmallow Carrots are not the ones that Peter Rabbit was munching on in Mr. McGregor's garden, but I think you will like them. You start with homemade marshmallow, cut out some carrots with a cookie cutter, add some orange sanding sugar, add some licorice greens, and you have a marshmallow carrot similar to a peep! Things would have been fun if these had been growing in Mr. McGregor's garden!

Easter Egg Carrot Cake~Holiday Recipe Club

It's time again for Holiday Recipe Club! This is only my second post with the club, and so far, it is really fun!! Each month we are given three ingredients to choose from to make a recipe. We must use at least one of the  holiday related ingredients. Our ingredients this month are spinach, eggs, and carrots. I choose carrots and eggs, and came up with Easter Egg Carrot Egg! I have used this carrot cake many, many times, and it is delicious!
