Rose cake for my baby girl’s first birthday…

If you read my other post about my baby girl’s first birthday, you know that I chose an apple theme.  I had visions of an apple cake for her but never really found any apple cake designs that I liked.
Then I got on Pinterest and happened to see this rose cake tutorial.  It said it was easy, although I was skeptical “who’s” version of easy we were talking about!!  Easy for a professional, because I am certainly not a professional!!  But I have to say, it really was easy!!!
I baked a small cake in a Pyrex bowl and then used the rest of the batter for cupcakes for the other kids.  I frosted the whole cake first with a base coat and then started piping the roses.
It was a perfect little cake for her first birthday pics, and she LOVED it!!

Back to School balloon wreath…

I love it when my kids go back to school and we are all on a schedule!!  I wanted to celebrate new school year with my kids so I whipped up some cupcakes and altered my balloon wreath and all of a sudden we have insta-party!!
I took my Monogram Balloon Wreath, here’s the link if you want to know how to make a balloon wreath, and then removed the monogram and added a banner that says, “School Rules!!”  The banner shape was from PowerPoint and it only took me about 5 minutes to print it out, cut it, hot glue it to the pencils—and be done!!
So easy!!  And wouldn’t this be a cute back to school gift for a teacher??  Or a teacher appreciation gift??  Hmmm,  I might need to go make some more…
