Done with the party and on to Christmas

Birthday party done. Phew! It’s always a bit exhausting but I’m real glad everything went well. Birthday girl was happy. Here are some pics of the table. Mostly food this time. 🙂

So I posted a few weeks back about this cake and I decided to photograph the ‘stuffing’ and the decoration of the cake this time. So the cake had a twist. It looks like a normal cake but I actually just made a hugh cupcake. I didn’t use whipped cream but cupcake icing. That was a hit!

First layer consisted of the icing and apples stirred in melted sugar and butter.

Happy BirthdayIn my last post I had finished my gingerbread cookies and the meringues  They turned out great. I filled the meringues cups with the apple sauce I used in the cake and then some basic whipped cream on top. The last touch were the cookies.

MeriguesEasy way to decorate also was to just get all the cute little vases you have lying around the house and fill them up with candy. Had popcorn as well because the birthday girl requested it. Was supposed dye it pink but ran out of time. Next time…


But before I end this the final picture of the delicious white tail deer we had. We also served some fresh salad, rice, red wine sauce and red berry jello.

White tail deerYes. I’m done. Had a great time but I’m already looking forward to other projects. Be back soon!

      Thanks! 🙂 I was a bit suprised myself how well it turned out. My baking experience isn’t that big. It did taste really really good and I think I hit spot on the princess theme I was asked for.
