Going Irish?

We like a bit of orange with our green on Saint Patrick's Day! That would be from my side of the family - the kids are pure green on their Dad's side. I saw this idea for treats several years ago in a magazine and have been adapting them for different holidays ever since. So simple...use cookie cutters to cut out shapes in pound cake. Frost and decorate. Today after school I let my 9 year old son cut out the shapes (will wonders never cease, he actually agreed to participate!) and then my daughter helped with the decorating. I wanted them to be all perfect and Martha Stewart but then I remembered, the point is for them to have fun!!! Off to boil the potatoes for dinner. Hope the day brings some green to all of you as well.
