First Birthday - Jungle Theme!

My other nephew Tavin had his first birthday party a few weeks ago. Although I did not find out that I was supposed to be making the cakes until 3 days before the party (thanks, hubby!) I think it turned out exactly as I had imagined it! I started by making a few plush looking animals out of fondant.
Since there was a lion on the invite, I started with making the lion. I added the stitches to make it look like stuffed animals!

Then the zebra...
Then the elephant!

For the smash cake, I used a flower shaped pan - added the mane with a star tip and some chocolate chips and a hershey's kiss for the eyes and nose!

On the main cake, I wanted it to be more boyish colors, so I opted for green and blue and threw in some yellow to tie in the two cakes!

And the two together!

And he loved the party and the cake!! Happy Birthday, buddy!

A Couple of Projects

Here are a few Christmas projects that I did during the month of December!

First, for my brother Travis and his girlfriend Jackie, I decided to make a vinyl design to put onto a red decorative plate to fill with hot chocolate and goodies. it took me a little while to get the design lined up and the sizing correct, but I think it turned out pretty good. Here is a picture of the vinyl before I applied it to the plate.

And here is the plate with the vinyl on it! So cute!

Next are a few little holiday signs that I made for the girls at work!

My mom, sister and I always find a project to do together for the Christmas season! I found this cute little penguin and this year we also had Kyrstin to do the project with us!
This is my moms! I love how her eyes are a little crooked...I tried to get mine a little crooked and they just are not crooked enough to be noticeable!

My sisters turned out so cute with the blue...but she was being a little camera shy!

Kyrstin did a cute read and green striped scarf on hers with red glitter trim!

And here is mine. I love how each of our personalities are so different that even when we do the exact same project, they all turn out so different!

And lastly, I made this for my little sister! I think it turned out so cute! Love ya sissy!
