This is SO cute! What a great way to share seasonal treats-I need to make at least four or five just for my house, and then one each for my friends. I think I'll print out your excellent directions for making them and add that to the gift so they can make more of them. Wow, these would make neat wedding table decorations, too:)

Yes people use miniature pots for wedding favors as well as baby showers. I'm making them for a few people as well.
