It’s so hard to believe it’s been a week since I posted! Computer woes and a super busy week have kept me from the old blog. Thank goodness for tech savvy nephews who get their aunt going again! So besides work and Valentine’s Day, here’s what’s been going on.
I made some super easy cupcakes for a friend who needed a pick me up. The ice cream swirl takes just a minute to do and looks so sweet on top. Of course I saved some for my kiddos.
And then I made these super cute party favors as a trial run for the teacher appreciation lunch. I saw these in a store and copied them. I think for the final round, I will vary them a bit and use the theme colors for the party. A drop of icing will hold the gumball in place.
Want to see how I did it? Cupcake wrappers and double stick tape on matching cardstock. Filled with a little ketchup holder for stability. And then just take the candy – any small candy or gum will work as long as you make the top rounded like a cupcake - and twist it in clear wrap, taping off the bottom to keep it secure. Then just top it all off with a gumball.
I think these can easily be adapted for any occasion – jelly beans for Easter, little hearts for Valentines. Easy and cute are right up my alley! Let me know if you give them a try or if you need any help.
Enjoy the weekend!
