No really it will because these cows are made of chocolate!
The Johnson County Beef Jr. Beef Cattle Assoc. is sponsoring an open show this weekend and they are also having a bake sale to help raise additional money!
Remember this post - Why . . .
do I always have to make more work for myself?
So instead of just making some brownies or cookies I decided wouldn't chocolate shaped cows be awesome! And they turned out really cute - but I only had 2 cookie cutters, 1 steer and 1 heifer - I made over 50 of these guys - it took a while!
But I do love the way they turned out and I hope they sell tomorrow!
I started with Wilton Candy Melts in all colors, melted them in the microwave and just kept filling the cookie cutter with the melted candy - different colors, different patterns, different breeds!
Shorthorn / Polled Hereford
Who doesn't love a black baldie?
Below is a purebred black Simmetal
Above - a purebred Angus!
And here we have the illusive and hard to breed Easter cows - pink and white choc. sprinkles!
Here they in their pasture of Easter grass, each one tied lovingly with a Grand Champion purple colored satin ribbon!
These little ones are from a candy mold I found on Branded Barn website at the end of last week - I e-mailed them said "Wow I love this and I so needed it yesterday" , she immediately e-mailed me back and said here is a Paypal invoice and I put them in the mail just now! Seriously - that is service and they are perfect!
from the chocolate cow!
I just wish the "Easter Bunny" would of thought of making these because my kids would of loved these in their baskets!
Now I am off to the barn to wash cattle in this 45 degree wet rainy weather! I am wearing the shirt my kids bought me that says "Show Mom - proud to say my kids were raised in a barn!" only so that every time I hang my head in defeat and cold I can read my shirt and be reminded that this whole "let's show cattle" thing was entirely my idea!
