From Pins to Projects

My friend Amber over at Binkertation started this great linky party every Sunday called From Pins to Projects.  I know I have tons of stuff pinned and have done a few of them, but definitely need to take the time and do more of them.  When A's 2nd Birthday was being planned I knew that I wanted to do an owl theme all because of this pin below.

Here's my photo's of the cake I made for A's Birthday Party. Here's after I eyed the photo above and made cuts to copy.  The original post about how to do this, she traced it out on paper and followed it that way.  It was late and I didn't feel like doing that method. 

Next up, I got out my gel food colors to mix up some different colors for the icing.  I pulled the colors from her party plates, purple/pink/orange.  And when I'm putting icing on things, I grab a quart or XL sandwich bag, shove it in a cup with one point at the bottom, scoop in my icing and then snip off the corner for piping.  Here's some pretty purple icing. 

Here's the finished product.  Overall was really pleased with how it turned out and everyone loved it at the party, especially the birthday girl.  

Pin It
