Edible Easter Kidlet Fun

Edible Easter Kidlet Fun feature

When I was a little girl I can always remember Mum making plates of Funny Face Milk Arrowroot biscuits to enjoy at our birthday parties, she’d use  homemade icing (usually the leftovers from the birthday cake icing, she always made our cakes), smarties, jelly beans and sometimes a little licorice to create the facial expressions.  I wish I had pictures to share with you all, but those were the days when smart phones didn’t exist and camera’s used real film, so for me to try to find you an original picture would mean me wading my way through Mum’s collection of photo albums, I’ll keep that the walk down memory lane for another post.

I’ve really only to got to see a Milk Arrowroot biscuit and it takes me back to Mum’s funny face creations as well as all the other edible treasure she used to make for our birthdays….. sausage rolls, patty cakes, mini quiche (they were her party staples). My brother, sister and I were 3 lucky kids, we still are! Love you Mum xx

With Easter just around the corner I thought I’d take a little walk down memory lane with my own 3 kidlets and create some Easter Egg Arrowroot Biscuits! ‘Edible Easter Kidlet Fun’ I like to call it.

If you haven’t come across or made iced Milk Arrowroot biscuits before, don’t despair, it’s never to late to enjoy such treasure, especially when they’re so easy to make. All you need is a packet of Milk Arrowroot biscuits, some easy homemade icing (store-bought will work too), some confectionery to decorate and 3 little helpers come in really handy too!

Oh I forgot to mention food colour, the kidlets all picked a colour they wanted to use in their icing. Soooooo much concentration!

Then it was onto the creating………

Let me just say here, for a good 10 minutes there was dead silence at my kitchen bench! It was pure concentration stations and pure music to a mothers ears, I couldn’t tell you the last time all three kidlets were in arms reach of each other and completely mute, it really was heaven. Seeing them all trying so hard and behaving so well brought a huge smile to my face.

We swapped the icing around so everyone got to make a mixture of different coloured biscuits (yes we shared too!)

And when you create the best bit is getting to eat the treasure of your labour isn’t it?

I think the pictures speak for themselves.

      Hey thanks for stopping by Debbie.
      I can just imagine how amazing your versions of these biscuits would taste & look. Sometimes the classics are the best! Have a great week.

      You’ll have a ball! They were so proud of their efforts we gave quite a few away as gifts to family and friends.
      As for the hair Alani did her own (throw-a-headband on job) and Ella was the quick pull to the side. Love your visits Renee, thanks for stopping by. X

  5. I agree with Nicole, egg-cellent fun for big and little kids alike! The only problem would be trying not to consume the candy before decorating o’clock!

      Consuming the candy is all part of the fun Sammie! We did have a hootful fun adventure!

  6. Such a classic! I have pulled this out at a recent party before. Using the leftover cake icing to make some little treats for one of the kids who couldn’t have egg (and I baked a cake with egg!). Will be doing these Easter versions in the holidays!

      Classics are great aren’t they!
      Love that you made the most of your leftovers, especially for the kidlets who can’t enjoy cake with egg, perfect. Have fun in the holidays! Xx
