First, I made the favors. I had seen on one of the blogs I read, these "cupcakes" made with candy, and thought they would be perfect. Now of course I found these "cupcakes" a week and half before her party, and I wasn't sure if I could get them in time. After thinking about it some more, I decided I could easily make my own "cupcakes". So off to the store to buy some Jelly beans and chocolate truffles for the cherry on top. I was pretty happy with how they turned out and the kids all seem to really like them.
The colors I had put on the invitations were pink, purple and green, so I just continued that to the cake.
Samantha likes polka dots. I figured it would be fun to cover the side of the cake with big dots with a cupcake here and there.
Here is the final outcome. Samantha was very pleased with it, although at one point she did tell me it was missing something. That something turned out to be Minnie Mouse, whom sadly did not make a appearance on the cake.
Happy Birthday Peanut and Honey! I love you both!
