A Lot on Your Plate

There is a new restaurant near us. It has a horse in it's name so you get a little cocoa horse on your plate when you order a dessert. Now that is an idea I can use at home.
 All you need is a paper punch, a tea strainer and some cocoa. Actually, you don't even need a punch as you can cut a shape out of copy paper.
 Punch out your shape and make a scotch tape handle by folding a piece of tape in half, leaving two small wings at the end. Attach those wings to the center of the paper making certain that you don't tape over any of the openings.

Place your shape on the rim of your plate and sift cocoa over it. Carefully remove the shape with it's handle.
Now is that cool or what? I can see doing this with your initial, or the initial of each guest, or a tree for Christmas, a star for July 4th, a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day......the ideas are endless.  Stop me before I sift cocoa on everything!

That is cool! It reminds me of the times I cut my children's sandwiches and pancakes into shapes for them.. Mickey Mouse, smiley faces, etc. I would have loved to do this as well. Oh well, there is always the grandkids!

What a cute idea. If you get a chance I would love you to link your coco flower up to More the Merrier Monday. It starts tonight and lasts through Wednesday. See you there.

Fun idea! You could do the same thing with powdered sugar on a dark plate.

I thought this was breakfast- I am looking to make something with strawberries. Maybe I should use them for dessert!
