Dancing the Maypole!

Every year May Day comes and goes without celebration.  Back in the day and I do mean the day, I not only ran door to door passing out May Baskets, I actually "danced" around the May Pole.  It was a huge celebration at my school, so huge, we had a May Day Program.  We practiced for days, weaving in and out, getting tangled, untangled, practiced and practiced. 
One of the years, we all dressed up from different countries, I was dressed from Sweden, with the cutest little dress and wooden shoes.  I don't remember exactly, but I do think it was hard to dance around the May Pole in wooden shoes.  Imagine.
For years I've wanted to have a May Day Party and dance around the May Pole for old times sake.  Because it won't happen any time soon, I decided to let my cupcakes do the dancing.

Edible Pearls for Mom!

I don't know about you, but I've started reminding my family mother's day is coming.  No one has ever forgotten my birthday, anniversary, or mother's day.  I really don't think they would, even if I didn't start reminding them weeks in advance.

You're going to be so excited when I tell you that I have a sweet treat that only involves two ingredients and four steps.  Melt. Pour. Sprinkle. Break.  Oh, and the most important step of all... EAT!

Herb Garden Cupcakes!

It's no secret I don't have a green thumb.  In fact, my neighborhood is hosting the Junior League garden tour this summer, when my neighbor was asked if they thought I would like to participate, she laughed and said "she has artificial flowers in her urns"!  Really, who doesn't want to see a beautiful fake faux flower arrangement potted in urns? 
Come to find out, no one.
Maybe you'll want to see what I've potted in these garden pots.

Spring Bonnet Cakes!

If you are looking for a sweet Spring or Mother's Day treat, these bonnets fit the bill. Do you remember wearing an Easter Bonnet? Growing up on a farm in Nebraska I remember how special every Easter was. Plus it was the first time I got to wear a little white sandal with a chunky heel to church, I remember them well. This has nothing to do with these cakes, because they are Easter Bonnet Cakes not Chunky Heel Cakes.  But they are just as cute!

It's time to put your thinking cap bonnet on and become a member of SugarEd Productions for a complete tutorial on how I made them. 
Maybe next time I'll make Chunky Heel Cakes!

DIY Polka Dot Glasses & Mugs!

You've got polka dots and stripes in your future if you click on this post.  Today is the last of the polka dot party. I wanted to make sure my stemware and mugs were part of the d├ęcor.  I loved that they coordinated with the theme and when the party was over, they could be washed and ready for the next event.  I've got dots more for you to see!

I painted the champagne flutes and wrapped the wine glasses, take a look~

Gingerbread Birthday Cookies!

Do you think it was weird that I made gingerbread cookies for a Birthday Party in March?  Let me tell you why...I had a stamp.  An imprint stamp that said Happy Birthday and I wanted to use it.  Gingerbread was the first cookie that came to mind which wouldn't have to be frosted, leaving the message perfectly clear.

What I'm really trying to say is, Gingerbread... it's not just for Christmas!

Black & White Birthday Party!

 Today it's all black and white...polka dots and stripes.  That was the theme for the recent birthday party I hosted.  How did I come up with that idea?  Actually, I had two ideas floating around in my head, kept tossing them back and forth.  Then I went shopping... in every window, I seemed to see black and white polka dots and stripes.  And I found the perfect polka dot dress.  So that, my friends is how this party began...
