Fruit Shamrocks

I might have mentioned a few times that I tend to hold onto things forever. I like to call it collecting, others might call it hoarding - either way, it works for me. So I was super excited to see the latest post over on the Cute Food For Kids blog where Tiffany shared her collection of cookie cutters. The reason I was so excited was because I too have amassed a large collection of cookies cutters, even though I can't stand to bake - I know, my husband doesn't get it either. You can check out Tiffany's collection here ...this is what mine looks like...


It was kind of fun going through all of the cookie cutters - I had forgotten I had so many cool shapes. Since St. Patrick's Day is only a few weeks away, I was really happy to see that I had a miniature shamrock-shaped cutter in the pile.


Since the fruit kebabs were a big hit at my son's Valentine's Day party, I thought I'd go for two and make more fruit for his St. Patrick's Day party at school...this time using kiwi fruit.


Too cute, right? And no baking required!

ADORABLE!! Wish I was still teaching little ones....I'd add this to the mischivious leprachaun that always showed up and "trashed" the room. Of course I hadn't been in the room til after all the kids go there, so the were horrified at the mess! Way too fun :) Thanks for the cute idea....maybe I should start my own collection of cookie cutters!

Ive been searching for a set of mini cookie cutters that encompass most of the holidays. Would you mind sharing which set your shamrock was in?

Hi Tiff - The shamrock was included in the Creative Cutters Set from The Pampered Chef. I bought this set a hundred years ago, but hopefully they still sell it! Hope that helps!!
