Proud Mama

Just wanted to post some pictures of the birthday! After my last blog, I figured I should show the results. It was definitely a very proud mama day! Not only did I stick to my guns, follow thorough, and create the ultimate birthday cake.  But also, I didn't sweat the small stuff this week.  Any imperfections, were what made everything perfect!  Go figure! So cheers to that, and learning a little something a long the way. I can't wait to see what next year has in store!

The cake was made out of Orange and Green Fondant. Fondant is amazing to look at, but incredibly hard to work with! This cake took me 12 hours to make. Truly a labor of love! I would do it again in a heart beat though, and look forward to my next creation!

Dinosaur gift bags were pretty fun also. I couldn't find anything in the gift bag isle I liked, so I made these myself. Sticking with our Orange and Green theme, I just cut out some Dinosaurs and glued them on the bags. The gift bags had a plethora of Dinosaur goodies inside. (Thank you Michael's Crafts store)

Every kid got a pair of Dinosaur slippers to go home with. These were my favorite. HUGE and probably didn't fit a single kid at the party, but they will have them for quite some time, and they are certainly fun to pretend with.

Dinosaur Slippers as a favor for the kids.
