Cupcake Challenge Party Entries

I’ve been totally slacking on sharing our Cupcake Challenge contestants creations! (I blame too much life.) As I mentioned last month when I shared the invitations, this was our second cupcake challenge party. This time we had four teams working their cake decorating magic.

Our first group had a very whimsical entry. It’s amazing how much candy a couple of girls can manage to pile on!

The next group used their cupcakes to construct a cute dear eating a bush. I love the Runts antlers!

The third group was shooting for a surf, turf and air motif with a ginormous octopus on the ocean, an equally huge cloud in the sky and of coarse the earth cupcake.

Our winner did an excellent job of stacking their cupcakes into a tall tree, making leaves from slices of large marshmallows dipped in colored sugar. Congratulations!

So there you have this challenge’s works of art. Which one would you have voted for?

Angry Birds Party

Lest you think I’m all cupcakes and candy, pop over to Arizona Mama for the details on my Angry Birds Party! I’m thinking we’ll have to play a few more games of hand-on Angry Birds over the summer.I’ll have to show you the cute invitations I made next week.

Cupcake Party Banner

With all parties, graduations and other end of the school year activities, it’s good to have a few minutes to show you the cool Cupcake Party Banner we made for our recent Cupcake Challenge that went with these invitations.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the cupcakes and the letters. Actually, I recycled the letters from our Book Theme Party banner. My assistant found the perfect yellow shoe strings to hang it up. It was the perfect accent above the gifts.

Cupcake Challenge Party Invitation

As I mentioned Friday, I’m working on another Cupcake Challenge party. I must admit that planning this party the second time around is much easier. There are a few changes, like party colors, to keep it unique to the birthday girl.

The invitations are super simple and cute. I was planning on making them by myself, when my daughter asked if she could put them together. Why didn’t I think of that? I’m feeling a little frazzled with our crazy busy May and she took one thing off my plate. And she enjoyed being creative. I usually like that too, but not as much when I’m overwhelmed.

She’s happy, the invitations are delivered – it’s all good!
