The Partiologist: Beach Ball Brownies!

Beach Ball Brownies!

Wanting to add a little dimension to my pool party, both the brownies and cupcakes had special hand made toppers.  For the brownies, I made a beach ball out of fondant and royal icing, a red chocolate life ring topped the cupcakes.  Let's start with the brownie, it's more than a brownie, it's a...
 
Beach Ball Brownie!
 

Here's how to make your beach ball brownies.


Using the beach ball cookie cutter (below), cut white beach balls out of fondant. Pipe on colored royal icing to make the beach ball pattern.  Let set overnight or until hard.
 
After baking and frosting the brownies, let them cool.  Take a round cookie cutter and cut out circles from the pan of brownies.
 
Top each brownie with blue frosting and sprinkle with white and blue sanding sugar.
 
Cut a slit in the top of the brownie, making a place to hold the fondant beach ball.
 
The day before the pool party was scheduled, I decided to add more cupcakes.  Because who doesn't want more cupcakes?
 
Splish Splash
 
 
Mini beach balls from Oriental Trading were the perfect way to edge the sides of the pool, next to the cake stand holding the cupcakes.

I made chocolate life rings with red candy melts and a mold.
 
Frosted the top of white cupcakes in blue and added the ring.

Cut out polka dotted cupcake liners with my Cricut.

 Save a Life...Eat a Cupcake!
  
 I hope I made a Splash!
