The Fairy Party

I don't necessarily want this blog to be focused on my children and our personal lives, but recently a huge portion of my time was spent planning this party for my doodler, so it only seems fitting that I share a couple of pictures. A good time was had by all, and I hope that this will be a party that lives on in her earliest memories.

why do these wings always fall flat?

I have to say I'm disappointed in the way the "fairy cakes" turned out. I had envisioned they would look like flowers with a little "tinkerbell" flying above them, having just sprinkled them with fairy dust. I found a Martha Stewart cupcake holder and some food "glitter" and some tinkerbell cupcake toppers. First, the toppers were smaller than I was thinking. Then the cupcake holders were bigger and didn't hold up to baking very well. The glitter didn't sparkle as much as I was hoping, and to top it off, once we got to the party the purple icing had turned blue! How in the world...
Well, I hope you can appreciate my attempt and vision as I am the farthest thing from being a baker!

Happy parties!
