A Valentines Day treat!

I have a HUGE order of cake balls to fulfill by this weekend so I started working on them today. After rolling 100 (which isn't even half way through) and covering about 50 of them I got side tracked...bored actually, and I started playing around with a Valentines Day treat idea. This one I'll definitely be using at my Valentines Day party for our toddlers next week!!! :)


All I did was use my little heart cookie cutter to cut through a cake ball then covered it with candy melts. Easy and so cute! And I finally have a use for those plastic heart containers I got on clearance sale last year! ;)

Where The Wild Things Are Cake

I remember loving this book when I was a little girl. Its a great book! A little bit scary, but not too much so...with a lesson to be learned, but still a fun book. It's a classic. Who would have known that 20 something years later I would be using my memories of it to recreate a cake for a sweet little boy's first birthday?! Even as a child I'm not sure I could have imagined a cooler "job"!!

So here it is,
Weston's 1st birthday cake
In the book Max has a private boat that takes him to where the wild things are.


Let the Wild Rumpus start!

Is the cuteness killing you????



And of course, I've fallen in love with this theme for a party! I always do this...wish I had a boy whenever I come across a cute boy party theme. (not too sure my husband will think its a valid reason to try for a 3rd child) ;) So instead of having another baby in hopes that its a boy so that I can throw aWhere The Wild Things Are party, I decided to just plan a pretend party. :)



That oh so cute/totally cool wreath came from THIS party. Love it
And for this type of party you've got to create lots of vines. Easy enough to do with paper. I found this kind of paper vine here. There are all sorts of tutorials out there for paper vines.

And check out those paper bag monsters. What a great party craft! I found that idea here.
And right under the paper bags are the crowns...gotta have crowns. Find more party pics from that party here.
Right under that picture is the cutest party outfit ever!! Gotta dress your little one up in a max-like costume so he can be king of all wild things! Source

Counterclock wise is one of my favorite quotes from the book. I think it would be so cool to make posters of some of the classic quotes from the book, scatter them around as decorations for the party. This one would be great on the door guests will be exiting out of.
And last but not least, a dessert table, junble/woods theme would be totally appropriate. Source

I Carly cake...no wait...its an I Mia cake!

I just finished my first cake in a few weeks. The break was nice, but it sure did feel good to break out the ol' spatula and get to work. :)

Kates in the houuuuze...or the kitchen I should say!!!

And my first cake of the weekend is is for our neighbors' little girl Mia. Mia is turning 6 and apparently she is a big I Carly fan. :) Hopefully she'll enjoy this cake as much as she enjoys her show.

Who's up for tacos?!

Yummy!!! These tacos are most likely not on your New Years diet! :) Shells are made from yellow candy melts w/ oreo crumbs tossed in. "Meat" is brownie, "lettuce, cheese and sour cream" are all icing and the "tomatoes" are chopped up Twizzlers.

Sweetest tacos you'll find this side of the border! :)
I know its a while away, but wouldn't these little guys make a great Cinco De Mayo party treat!
