So now it’s time to get busy since my daughter turned 3 yesterday and tomorrow we are having a party. I know, I’m still getting off easy since this party is just for relatives and few close friends. Probably next year we’re having a kid party.
The warm foods are the easy bit since we are serving potatoes, smoked wild tail deer and some delicious salads. Post a picture of it for sure since the deer will very likely be delicious looking. But to the desserts. This is what I have gotten done.
Meringues done and, gingerbread cookies baked and decorated. I decided to take advantage of Christmas treats but to give them a little twist to make them look a little more birthday party like. Meringues will be filled with this extremely good and totally organic apple sauce. As the topping, some lovely fluffy cream on top and something else. You’ll see soon. Two decorations I also got done, the crowns and the cake decoration sign. The pink crown is going on the cake as well (somehow) and the others were more or less made for fun. Thanks to this wonderful blog I found, that I got the idea to make these absolutely gorgeous lace crowns. You can find the steps there to make these. Last but not least I also wanted to make a sign on the cake that I can go along with the crown. I was left with extremely small butterfly die-cuts (3mm) from the butterfly garland I made for the party and decided to use them on the sign. Cute, eh? 🙂 Hint: I used Glossy accent to glue the butterflies on. Strong enough to hold them instantly and no drying marks left. Have a nice Saturday and my thoughts to all in Connecticut. – Alina
