Finally.....the Cupcake Party

After weeks of planning, crafting, sewing and baking Momo's 3rd birthday party arrived!

Since space is limited in our tiny apartment we rented out the party room at the Cupcake Boutique (thanks dad!):


I wish I could take credit for the incredible decorations but I can't. The room comes decorated just like this!

I used some of the cupcakes we made to display Momo's birthdays through the years:



Displayed the ginormous cupcake cake:


BTW - I used " Wilton's "Giant Cupcake Pan". I did some research and found that a lot of people preferred this one over the silicone one. It was easy to use. I did bake the bottom piece first for about 15 minutes before adding the batter for the top piece. Also I didn't see the need even frost the bottom half.

I also made some "cupcake bites":

I found the recipe on Jahjong's blog and just had to try it! Her tutorial is fantastic and it ended up being much easier than I anticipated. My pictures don't do these little bites justice - they are small! Here's a picture in my daughter's little hand:


And they were surprisingly yummy! A little crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I can't wait to make these again!

We also had some face painting thanks to my best friend and her daughter:

The girls frosted cupcakes:


And of course there was licking of the frosting:


A little game of pin the cherry on the cupcake (poster made by Kailani):



I totally forgot to bring a blindfold so the birthday crown came in handy:



And those that had their face painted we found the apron to be a better alternative:


It was finally time to blow out the candles and Momo couldn't wait. She blew them out before we even sang "Happy Birthday" to her!


It ended up being a fun little party with some fun little girls! :)

  1. I love the CUPCAKE theme!! I also have the Wilton Giant Cupcake Pan, and I agree the bottom doesn't need to be frosted :) Great job looks like she had fun.
