VocabuLARRY

If you have a baby you may know who VocabuLARRY is.  If not, here is a picture... 
 He is a silly parrot who can be seen on BabyFirstTV.com. Basically he is considered pretty cool among small people and it just so happens he has a realllly big fan that lives in my neighborhood.  Her name is Lauren and she just turned ONE!   She loves this Larry parrot character so her mom knew just what she wanted when it was time for a cake.  

A VocabuLARRY cake.

We went with sky/clouds and a grassy/white picket fence two tier to mimic the background in many of the VocabuLARRY episodes.
 

Lauren kept her 1st birthday party pretty small so they really didn't need a two tier cake.  BUT her mom loves the look of the two tier.  Sooooo, they ended up using the top tier as Lauren's smash cake and the bottom tier to serve to guests.  Perfect compromise!! 

I'm sure Lauren enjoyed smashing her little hands into those fluffy white buttercream clouds! ;))

Horse Themed 2nd Birthday


Truer words were never spoken!!  

 Horses...ahhhh they're just the best things EVER!!  I had so much fun creating this dessert table because it combined two of my favorite things...HORSES and sweet things.  SWOON!
This party was centered around a little girl named Ryan whose mama is 100% the horse expert.  She is my trainer friend and helps me out with my new sweet horse.  (she gets probably 20 text daily from yours truly, I've got questions y'all!!)

OK wait, hold on...let me find a picture so I can introduce you really quick...

Auzzie, meet everyone.  Everyone, meet Auzzie.  He's the man!!!

Isn't he cute!?!?  

Ok, so back to Ryan...its her birthday and she is turning TWO.  Like mother like daughter, little Ryan already has a love of horses!  Sooooo.....the horse dessert table was born to celebrate her 2nd year.

Happy Birthday Ryan!!!!

 As always, cake comes first...









Horse Cake Pops





I covered rice krispie treat squares in candy melts to look like hay bales.

 And since there was hay, we had to have horse treats too!!  Apples (chocolate covered oreos) and carrots (cake pops).  

Oh boy, horse silhouette cupcake toppers made from chocoate...LOVE the way these turned out!
  



 Cheesecake bites.




Not just TRAIL MIX, but trail RIDING mix. ;)
Oh gosh, there's those cupcake toppers again.  ♥♥♥♥♥♥ 

 Ryan has a horse named Moe.  Moe is a pretty special guy because he is Ryan's mama's very FIRST horse so I hoped to find a way for him to be represented on the table .  He is VIP after all!  So I made Moe Pops...marshmallows with chocolate "spots" to mimic Moe's markings.






I know its just a picture of a horse, but doesn't he look like he wants to eat those apples???






Ok, I think that's all I got.  That was a lot of pics.  Thanks for stickin' with me.  Hope you enjoyed!!!!
