Mardi Gras Pizzelles!

Hi everyone! I wanted to take something fun into the office and had an idea... Mardi Gras Pizzelles!
I think I have sufficiently used enough icing coloring this Mardi Gras season 
to make the good folks at Wilton proud!
Have a happy day:@)
Vanilla Pizzelles
3 eggs, room temp
3/4 C sugar
1/2 C melted butter, cooled
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 C flour (I add 2 tblsp corn starch to the measuring cup, then fill with flour)
2 tsp baking powder
Directions:
Beat eggs and sugar. Add butter and vanilla. Sift flour and baking powder together and add to wet, mix well. 
At this point I divided it into three bowls and added the coloring (use as little as possible to create the colors). I scooped a bit of each color up on a spoon and made the pizzelles following the directions that came with my machine.

  3. You are definitely in the Mardi Gras mode, aren't you. I've never done much decorating for the event, but I do love the colors & all. Those pizzeles look delicious. I also just saw your adorable Easter Egg holders. So cute -- would be fun to make for my "grands."

  12. Love it! What's a Mardi Gras sweet without those colors? My husband wants to make a King's cake without the colors. I told him it's unacceptable. He said he'd just call it something else!!!!!

    Best,
    Bonnie
