Hi guys. Sorry for the lack of updates. My sister is getting married in Aug so there have been many wedding planning events going on. First of them is her bridal shower. She wanted to do a "Spring in the Hamptons" theme so it was a lot of fun putting everything togther. the decor...the food..the outfits.
The tissue paper pom poms were so much fun to make. If you want to learn how to DIY click here. I think it would be pretty cool to make them out of newspapers too for an interesting effect
♥ When you get the yoke out rinse it out with water and let dry
♥ You want the jello to be more firm so use less water to make it and add gelatin
♥ Set the jello in the fridge like you normally would
♥ Now for the fun part. when its all ready crack the egg open like you would do with a hard boiled egg
♥ Peel the shell off and enjoy the jello =)
♥ Choose your favorite cupcake recipe and mix it up. The cupcakes I made were chocolate devil's food cake with cherry filling, almond flavoring and some chocolate chip cookies. If you guys are interested in this recipe let me know. I will post it
♥ I ended up a little short of the mix so i filled the cups about 2/3 but you want to fill it up at least to 3/4 full
♥ Bake as per your recipe instructions. While it's baking, make the icing and add your desired color of food coloring. For our I decided on baby blue and baby yellow
♥ After they are finished baking let it cool and ice it. Sprinkle with coconut shavings
DIY Butterfly straws
♥ Start out with a main stencil you'll use to trace the other ones. Fold a piece of paper in half and draw one side of the butterfly. Use this as your stencil to trace the other butterflies on your patterened paper. It easier to cut them out on the fold. It saves you time.
♥ After you cut them out cut into the fold 2 horizontal slits about hald an inch. When you open them up this is where you will slip in the straws
♥ love you dodo ♥
