The next few weeks..

I have a lot to do these next few weeks.  This weekend is that last cupcake weekend for the school year for my Church.  I have planned 'A fairy tale farewell.'  I'll make the Jelly Bean castle, Crowns, Prince and Princesses, and dragons.  These are very complicated cupcakes so they will take some time.

I also have to get ready for my Son's birthday party.  We are having a Little Einsteins party.  The story is that the birthday balloons got away and they need to travel around the world to find them.  I want every place that they visit to have a physical aspect.  So far I have planned a Great Wall of China balance beam, a Great Pyramid crawl through and crawl over, and a Under the Sea maze. I need a few more stations. I also want to build a tent for his bed.  Perhaps I'll use the tent as a station as well.  I also want some sort of  beam and ring swing.  These are things that I want for the kids for over the summer anyway to help keep up their strength from gymnastics.

Hmmm....perhaps a jungle swing over the Amazon river for the ring swing.  I'm having a hard time thinking of something for the bar though.  They do so much with the bar at gymnastics that I really want to make one for them.

I've just been informed that he wants a pinata as well.  I'll have to see what I come up with.  I also want to make a craft, I'm thinking of easter egg maracas. You make them with a dowel, plastic easter eggs and paper mache. I have a lot to do and make!  I best get a move on!

Found more!

I found some more cupcake pictures!

These were candy melt eggs filled with Candy. I knew they would be popular so I made 50 of them. Made for April.

These are called "Egg Hunt" and I submitted them for the JB contest. These were for April.

Maple bacon cupcakes were a HUGE hit and specially requested . Made for April.

catching up

Here are some pictures of cupcakes that I've done since I've been gone.
These are footballs and pom poms for the big game.
This is a football field for the big game as well. Wish I knew how to turn it for you!

These are the mini cupcakes I made for my Mom's Kindergarten  class's 100th day celebration.
These were for Preschool graduation for my Mom's work.

There was a cap for each kid who graduated and then mini cupcakes for the families.

A close up of the caps.
 I also did a castle that was pretty awesome, but I'm thinking of redoing it for next weekend and submitting it to the Jelly Belly Contest, so I'm holding off on posting that one for now.  It feels like I'm missing some, so I'll need to check my phone and see what I've got on there.  Thanks for sticking with me!

A graduation cake!

So I've been asked to make a graduation cake to feed 200 people on SATURDAY!  AHHHHH!  I of course said yes, this poor mom has WAY too much on her plate to make her try to find some one else. So I'm thinking of making a sheet cake with a book on top.  I've never really done cakes, so this will be interesting!  I didn't charge much just because I don't know how it's going to turn out.  I hope it turns out well!  I'll bake the cakes on Friday night and then decorate Saturday.  Wish me luck!

I've been horrid about posting!  I'm getting ready to start on Joseph's Little Einsteins birthday party.  I have quite a few things that I need build.  The story line is that Annie lost her balloons and we need to go find them.  So it will be an obstacle course around the world.  I have plans for a great wall of China balance beam, a Great pyramid tunnel and climb over, an under the sea maze and a balloon party. I need to think of a few more things I think to keep them busy.  The last thing was going to be the rocket bounce house, but I can't find it any where:(  I'm so mad at myself for not buying it when I saw it on clearance!  I know he is going to have a great time.  Oh and instead of a cake or cupcakes, I think I'm going to make cake pops that look like rocket.  Should be fun!

On the cupcake front I need to catch up.  I need to submit a few more to the Jelly Belly contest too.
