CHILDREN WILL LOVE decorating these edible flowers for a favorite lady this Mother's Day. Flower-shaped cookies, baked on wooden stems, can be gussied-up with sprinkles, tiny candies or colored icing. The finished cookies are then inserted in a block of florist's foam set into a decorative basket.
We made our cookies look like giant daisies by spreading them with canned white icing and placing a yellow candy coating piece in the center. Candy coating is available at cake decorating stores.
The wooden sticks are available at craft stores like Jo Anne Fabrics.
