Dipping Oreos into blue candy coating
Making the centerpieces including printing out photos to put in them.
Cupcake day but first I had to take Pat to the VA Clinic to have his sore shoulder checked. He fell a couple of weeks before at one of Spencer's baseball games. The doctor wanted it x-rayed so we had to go to the hospital. Fortunately, Laura was at our house and baked all of the cupcakes. When I got home mom and I frosted the cupcakes while Laura went to get Spencer from school. We were tired and we took a look at the intricate design that we needed to pipe onto the cupcakes and it just seemed to be too much. Right next to it in the cupcake book there was a simple cupcake with M&Ms on it that was cute. So we did chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting with a Tiffany Blue Sixlet in the middle and the blue chocolate covered sunflower seeds around it in the shape of a flower. The other cupcakes were white with sprinkles in them. We colored the frosting with sprinkles blue and then put M&Ms on them. Here is Laura, Chantal and Isabella fixing up the cupcakes.
Notice the matching tiered stands? They look so nice and I made them. I took plastic dinner plates from Party City and hot glued them together with glass candlesticks from Dollar Tree. The set of 10 large plates was $9.99. The set of 10 small plates was $4.99. Of course, the candlesticks were $1. For the tallest stand I used two large plates ($2), one small plate ($.50) and three candlesticks ($3) for a total of $5.50. Cheap for a tier cake stand that matches the color scheme. I took them apart and saved the candlesticks so I can do it again with the same 12 candlesticks that I bought.
Mom with Isabella and Spencer. She cried as we started but had a great time. That's my husband in the back with his arm in a sling. He did so much to make the day a great one.
