Fathers Day

~ Happy Fathers Day ~

I love you , Dad and want you to know
I feel your love wherever I go .
Whenever I have problems , you are there to assist,
The ways you have helped me would make quite a list .
- from Star Dad by Karl Fuchs

Today is Fathers Day , a day set aside to honor the
great man , and the pillar of the family , our Father .......
While half the world is busy celebrating the occasion
and the other half of the globe is still getting geared
up with the preparations -it still isn't too late to share
all the fun we had , making the dad at our home feel
the so very very special :) :)

We wanted to pep up the day with some cute DIY stuff ,
& surely our Moustachey theme proved perfect
to give him a good laugh & a lovely treat !!!


Whole wheat bread , cheese, olive , cucumber & carrot
(Cut out a mustache on a piece of paper to serve as ur
stencil guide , place the cutout on the cheese slice & cut
out the shape using a toothpick( believe me its easier to
cut cheese into fancy shapes via toothpick), make
a few lines on the cheesy mustache for the hairy look . )

( or Moustache cookies :) : )

What about some funky cookies ?????? Not much time to bake .....
not an issue at all , these cuties just need 10-15 mins & jus 3
basic ingredients to pep up ......

Ingredients - Your favorite cookies, some tempered chocolate , a few
M&Ms or gems candy is all that you need ..

Sketch a few mustaches on a piece of paper , keep an acetate sheet on top .
Fill a piping bag with some tempered chocolate & pipe the chocolate all over
the drawing. Pipe a few circles for the nose too . Make tiny dots on the candies
for the eyeballs . Refrigerate everything for a couple of mins . Once
set , peel your chocolate art & stick on the cookies with
some melted chocolate.
