- Be sure to use "food safe" wire, preferably 22 gauge
- The wire should not come in contact with food. Place wires in coffee stirrers with a bit of royal icing.
- Roll fondant very thin in order for stars to stay put on wire.
- Allow fondant stars to dry out a bit before placing them in cake.

Boy am I happy to be done with cake!!! Now don't get me wrong, I love this hobby of mine. But until I deliver a cake unscathed, I am a bit of a wreck!!! Well you guys are in for a treat today. I am sharing a link that inspired the Graduation Cap Cake on the very top tier! It's very easy and it's because of a YouTuber named MyCupcakeAddiction!! I absolutely love these videos and have learned so much from them. Here's a peek below!!
Please invest in the "Handy Gourmet Magic Cupcake Maker"! This product is so easy to use and cakes turn out great every time!!!

|Birthday Milestone Poster made on PicMonkey|
Hunt Club Farm is awesome. They included admissions to the petting farm, inflatable moon bounce, a nice sized room for the party and a gift for the birthday boy. I was very pleased with how his party turned out. We chowed down on chili with all of the fixins, fried chicken, mini pumpkin pies, cupcakes, candy apples, apple cider, mini glass bottle martinelli's for the kids and classic Cokes. I drove my husband crazy with the task of finding a vintage wooden high chair for the birthday boy to have his smash cake in. We finally found one for $25 on Craig's List the day before the party. I found tons of party favors at the Dollar tree; Cowboy Hats, mustaches, bandanas etc. The dollar bins at Michael's were gold mines as well. They had barnyard activity placemats and barn favor boxes.

First save a template of a chalkboard. Here's one.
|The Nosefrida SnotSucker Nasal Aspirator|
Ok, I'm gonna get right to it. The Nosefrida is the TRUTH! It is the most effective, most "awesomly" awesome and totally GROSS baby care product!!! It's ingenious, excellent.....every accolade available should be given to whomever came up with this invention. I'm so serious...it's a lifesaver!!! Last week my toddler had his first experience with seasonal allergies. It was bad. His red crusty eyes and nose weren't the end to his symptoms. He was hacking up a storm and wheezing. So I rushed my little one to the E.R., worried he was having an asthma attack. Thank God they said his "wheezing" was actually snot hanging out in his throat (layman's terms of course). I was so relieved but also frustrated because he can't blow his nose yet and that bulb syringe was of no help. So my husband went on a hunt for this product we heard about a while back. The Nosefrida SnotSucker Nasal Aspirator does just what the name implies. With help from a brave mommy or daddy it sucks the snot up a long tube. I'm not gonna lie my 18 month old did not like it. I had to hold him down as I put one end against his nostril and I sucked from the other end. Gross I know... but it was so great to see all of that gross mucous slide up the tube. No worries, there is a filter that prevents mucous and bacterial transfer!! So go out and add this product to your baby care product arsenal!! This is going to be my go to gift for baby showers! It's that great!!!

July has been jam packed with baking and I just realized I haven't shared the deets. Last week I finally got a chance to use my giant cupcake silicone pan. Wow...I have truly been missing out on the ease of working with silicone. The cake released very easily and I even made a "wrapper" out of candy melts for the bottom. Here's a peek!
