The Backyardigans cake I made for the twins' 2nd birthday party!! Made marshmallow fondant... and sculpted everything myself! :)
The fondant is essentially a sugar paste (its just marshmallows and icing sugar) so it has a shelf life of three or four months. If it feels a bit stiff and hard to use after being stored for a long time you can soften it up by kneading a bit of butter in or putting in the microwave one-two seconds at a time. cupcak, cake, sugar paste, homemade marshmallows, food coloring, marshmallow fondant, fondant recipes, mini, fondant tutorial
Hula hoop wrapped with Icicle lights. 1 hula hoop (spray painted) + 2 strings of icicle lights and a black electrical tape = magnificent chandelier. Great for parties
(Used this mostly as inspiration for Ellie's 1st birthday banner.) Didn't use paint-chips. (Seriously people, that's basically stealing.) Cut hearts with Cricut (about 2.5"). Cut "Happy Birthday" w/ Cricut (1.5"). Glued letters to hearts, punched holes in the tops and strung coordinating ribbon through to hang. Took two hours, off and on. valentine crafts, valentine day, paper hearts, paint swatches, paper punch, paint colors, heart garland, paint samples, paint chip
Birthday Questions - every year on their birthday you ask the same questions and see how their answers change over the years! Add a pic and make a book out of it.
Put candy inside the balloons and have the kids throw darts!? SUCH A CUTE IDEA!! (for older kids though... a little too old for the twins.)
