Getting ready for the Party!!!

Hi Everyone...I have been going full steam since morning....tomorrow is a party for Cole...he is turning 3 on July 15th and we are having 2 special parties for him...one with friends tomorrow....Sunday ......and another on July 15th with family.....today I have been baking up a storm...and creating some special keepsakes I make every year....Every year I make special laminated circle decorations to place around the patio....



I then baked and iced a special huge cupcake cake ...using the Wilton Large Cupcake pan...what fun...I did the bottom with chocolate ganache and the top is a butter cream cheese icing with a hint of almond....I hope everyone loves it tomorrow!!!



I also baked some yummy chocolate chip cookie pops then dipped them in white chocolate and sprinkles...I figure everything is more fun in colourful sprinkles....





and since Cole loves Spongebob this year....I tried to make some yummy brownies that are little Spongebob characters....hehehehe....they are hilarious....



This is a special laminated sign I made for the cake topper....Every year I make one and keep them as a memento....





and more cupcakes just for fun!!!




Well now it's time for a little rest...and relaxation....I am tired from all the baking and creating!!! What a wonderful Saturday!!!!



Hugs

Diana
