Master-Peeps Theatre: Mondrian Peeps

The best part about Easter? Messing around with the candy, of course. There are so many things you can make happen with the sweet treats that proliferate around this time of year--make S'meeps (that's Peeps S'mores), create dessert taco plates with rice pudding and jellybean "rice and beans"; you can make Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs.

But it's also fun to add a bit of high culture to your candy-eating, and so I present this Mondrian-inspired Peeps creation. Filled in with black jellybean outlines around Peeps, marshmallows, and various other candies to fill in the gaps, this was as fun to make as it will be to eat.

My favorite part, of course, is the Peeps that are torn in half to fit in certain sections. I will tell the truth, it was gratifying to rip them apart.

If you like Peeps art, you might also enjoy the Starry Night one I made a few years ago:

Happy Easter Season!

Seeking Sweetness: Daily Snapshot, Drawing by a 7 Year Old Fan

CakeSpy Note: if you follow me on facebook or Twitter, you probably know I'm partial to adding bits of sweetness to my daily surroundings, via sidewalk chalk, small cutouts, and the like--I call it "gentle street art". Here's where I post a daily feel-good photo, for no particular reason other than to showcase these sweet little nothings, in hopes that they'll make you smile.

This is a bit of sweetness that someone brought to me! Annabelle, 7 year old daughter of Sarah (who participated in the Bakesale for Japan and has a great blog called The Sated Palate), was so inspired by my cupcake-unicorn card that she did her own version. How sweet! Too bad I have to sue her for copyright infringement now.

This is a little anonymous note I left at the library, in the pages of a book that struck my fancy (maybe you'll be the next to take it out?). The question is unimportant: the answer, when it comes to doughnuts, is always Oh, yes.

This is an oldie but sweetie: a cupcake created from the light of a laser pointer! This was done by artist buddy Rakka.

CakeSpy Note: if you follow me on facebook or Twitter, you probably know I'm partial to adding bits of sweetness to my daily surroundings, via sidewalk chalk, small cutouts, and the like--I call it "gentle street art".

Here's the first of...well, what promises to be many sweet images!
