March is going out like a lion here in the midwest. The days are still not warming up much, there are still snow piles on the ground and we just had another snow/slush/freezing rain storm. But, tomorrow is April 1st, so even though the weather isn’t cooperating, we are thinking spring around here!

This year we enjoyed using Wilton baking items to Celebrate Valentine’s Day by making heart shaped cookies, heart shaped ice cubes, and chocolate fondue.

My husband spreads the icing on the cookies and my kids and I enjoy decorating them.

It’s easy for the kids to use Wilton’s Cookie Icing to add designs onto the cookies.

Pro parenting tip: use sheet pans to coral the sprinkles when decorating cookies. It helps contain the mess!

    My grandkids and I did more backing than usual for activities to do during the pandemic. I heard of the name Wilton, but didn’t know what they made. I do now. I will pin this. I know the kids will love this, especially the cutting and decorating part.
    The kids in the pictures look happy and like they are having fun. That’s good enough for me! Thank you for sharing!

    Looks like everyone had a great time! The cookies turned out cute, too. That’s a good tip about using a sheet pan to contain the sprinkles; thanks for sharing.
