Here is Riley's birthday dessert table. My friend Cecilia loaned me her little milk bottle creamer that went perfectly with my theme. I thought it was fun that not only did the 2 on the side of the milk bottle on the cake represent Riley turning 2, but the could also stand for 2% milk.
Here's a close up of the birthday boy's cake. The cookies, milk bottle and letters were all made with marshmallow fondant.
My signs were a last minute addition that I turned out to love. Chocolate chip cookies are always a favorite around here and a must have.
Just so I wouldn't have all chocolate (although I don't believe that is a bad thing), I made a batch of Snickerdoodles.
I think I have talked about these peanut butter cookies before. They are the easiest cookies to make. I love them. The only have 3 ingredients...that's right 3! And you can do so much with them. Here I made simple thumb print cookies with some grape jelly. I noticed I haven't posted any recipes lately, so I will post this one (since it is so easy)
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
Mix all ingredients together until incorporated. Scoop out cookies onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350.
(see I told you they were easy)
As favors, I found a milk carton template online, put them together and then filled them with some mini chocolate chip cookies. These were not the easiest thing to put together, but I really thought they came out so cute.
