In my eyes, this year has gone by so fast but has been such a journey at the same time (mostly school-related mind you). I feel that I would have liked to have done more projects this year, but I guess that’s something that you can look forward to in the upcoming year! Here is a recap on some of my favorite posts and projects from this past year:
Starting off with The Surprise Puck Cake (check it out here). To be honest, I’m still so proud of this cake, mostly because it was for a special occasion that was shared with many of C’s close friends. The whole event took a few weeks of secret planning and brainstorming, but I loved every minute of it.
It was recently C’s birthday… the big 3-0!
To celebrate this milestone, I threw him a surprise party with some of his friends!
And what’s a surprise party without a surprise cake?
Princess birthday bash anyone??
If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you’ve probably heard me refer to a little girl named Ari. Anyways, it was her 5th birthday party this past weekend and her party was absolutely insane – so much food (made from scratch!), a giant pink castle cake, non-stop entertainment for the kids and so much more (Good work on her parents’ parts!). A few weeks back, her parents asked if I was interested in making some cookies for the lucky kids who got invited to her party. Ch’yeahh I was. So here they are: pink and purple princess-themed dresses for the gals and jerseys for the boys.
Sooo… there was quite a bit of left over icing from the previous batches of cookies and throwing it all out wasn’t really an option. There was only one thing to do… make more cookies to decorate! As per other blogs, some have stored extra royal icing for months, whereas some have mentioned weeks… guess there’s no definite storage time for extra royal icing? These cookies were made less than a wk after wedding cookies, so the icing wasn’t super old yet.
