In the historical colonial zone of Old Havana there are some female flower sellers wearing bright eye catching traditional dresses for tourists to take pictures of them or with them.
The ladies are licensed state workers and the places they can work and the number of ladies are controlled by the Old Havana Tourism Office (notice their ID badges)
Many tourists assume that these dresses are the traditional national Cuban dress, but they are not. These dresses and turbans are the authentic colonial period dress style of working women, such as flower, candy or fruit sellers, and were my inspiration for this years Cascarones (Confetti Eggs).

Cubanitas Cascarones




Once again, because I only make 2 dozen Cascarones (one dozen for each of my granddaughters) I like to make them with a theme. The eggs turbans are made of red crepe paper with red, purple, pink, hot pink and orange mini paper roses.

Thank you rackycoo for featuring my Cubanitas Cascarones on the Featured Projects page.
 
My granddaughters loved the Cubanitas Cascarones so much that each girl saved 1 Cascaron to keep as a souvenir.

Each holiday, the girls and I make a craft together, this Easter we made Rice Krispie Eggs.
