  • Preheat round waffle iron. Spray with no stick cooking spray. Mix waffle mix, milk, egg, oil, 2 teaspoons of the vanilla, 1 teaspoon of the Sunflower color and 1/8 teaspoon Berry color in medium bowl until blended. Let batter stand 5 minutes to allow color to fully develop.

  • Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter onto center of hot waffle iron. Close lid. Cook about 3 minutes or until no longer steaming. Carefully remove waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. Cut each waffle into 8 triangles. Set aside.

  • Stir Sky Blue color and remaining 1/4 teaspoon Sunflower color into cream in another medium bowl. Add confectioners’ sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon into resealable plastic bag. Cut piece off one of the bottom corners of bag.

  • To decorate and serve the waffles, place waffle triangles onto serving plates and pipe the green colored cream on the wide side of each triangle to resemble carrot tops.
