Red Envelope Easter Treats Get Peeps-Bombed


Recently I was contacted by Red Envelope to do a review of their custom products Easter products (their unique Easter baskets, etc). They gave me a gift code (cha-ching!) with which to get myself somethin' at no cost. I'm sure they intended something Easter-y.

But, never having been good with authority...you know what I decided? I decided to combine the joy of Easter with the magic of Birthdays. And so I sort of broke the rules and instead of one of their (cute, admittedly) easter products, I purchased the most delicious-looking thing I could find on the entire website: The jumbo Happy Birthday Chocolate Chip cookie cake.

And then I did what any self-respecting easter lover would: I PEEPS-BOMBED IT!

I'll tell you the truth: I could tell right away that those Peeps were up to no good. How did I know this? Oh, I don't know. But the sign helped.


First, they began to surround the cookie.

And then they began to nest.

Like, really nest.

and then, somehow, they had decorating icing and jellybeans.

And then, before I knew it, the cookie cake was Easter-fied! And...and it was delicious.

Hey Jessie - Love the Peeps. We had the joy of visiting a Peeps store a few years ago and were somehow surprised that peeps were so popular. The giant yellow peeps bean bag would have been oh so perfect for your house I think. I myself was fascinated by the candy art that adorned their walls.
