(Ignore the weird paint job on the house… we’re debating colors. 😀 )
I learned how to make and decorate with royal icing (amateurly, but good enough for little kids)! Among other fun projects.
Cheddar & Olive Bumblebees, stingers up (toothpicks through a paper plate), surrounded by sweet cherry tomatoes (to hid the edge of the paper plate. 🙂 )
Deviled eggs with olive and tomato ladybugs. A little edible ink made spots on the back. Although I’m not sure how I feel about the look they’re all giving the baby carrot & tomato flower in the center.
My husband’s aunt sent us this amazing mold, which was my little Love Bug’s inspiration for the Bug Ball party. <3
They come out like this. I made chocolate, strawberry, and lemon.
The night before… ladybugs & bumblebees
Covered in simple royal icing (pasteurized liquid egg whites, powdered sugar, and color), with candy eyes.
Leftover strawberry & lemon batters went into heart shaped pans & bumbled about. 😛
Grape caterpillars, with a touch of edible ink for eyes, were a big hit
“Bug Juice” (cranberry, orange, strawberry lemonade, with a bit of lemon-lime soda) with gummy worm infested ice cubes.
Kid craft: organza bags (from the wedding section of the dollar store) to be filled with candy & chocolate covered raisins , pipe cleaners, google eyes, and a clothespin made a great craft/party favor… especially for the older siblings.
