Easter Chicks (Part 2)

While we were making the Easter chick cake pops...


Remember these little cuties we used for the Easter centerpiece?

Well, we had a few leftovers, so we came up with the idea to use them to make place cards.
I have to say, I think it was a pretty good idea - just look how cute they are!


These were also super easy to make.

Ready to hear how?
  1. Melt some white almond bark and spread it on some wax paper in whatever shape you want. Make sure the shapes are big enough for whatever names you have to write on them!
  2. While the white shapes are hardening, melt some yellow candy melts. Put the melted yellow candy into either a frosting squirter (is that the technical term?) or a plastic baggie with the corner tip cut off.
  3. Pipe out the names onto the white pieces. We had to abbreviate a few people's names so that they would fit!
  4. Place one with an Easter chick at each person's seat.


Bonus: The placecards look a little bit like a cracked egg!

(Just don't think too much about how the poor baby chick cake ball is sitting on top of a cracked egg!)
