Unicorns, Unicorns, Unicorns!
Unicorns are so popular right now. It seems like everywhere you look there are unicorns. I can’t believe how many adorable unicorn things there are out there!
This last weekend we celebrated my daughter’s 3rd birthday and of course, she wanted a unicorn party, or in her case a, “Noonicorn” party because she can’t quite say unicorn. I created an adorable little unicorn card and sent it out to all our closest friends.
The party was very simple. The only thing I really went all out on was the cake. My mom made the cake and then I set to work making it into a unicorn. Cake decorating is hard work. I bow to those who create beautiful masterpieces all year long.
The Perfect Daycare/School Treat
Every year at my daughter’s daycare they are allowed to bring in birthday treats. I wanted to send something simple and not too sugary. I am a school teacher and I always appreciated when parents sent in mini cupcakes or small cookies.
While talking to my mom about what I should bring, she suggested I use the leftover frosting from the cupcakes and just squish some between two graham crackers.
Once she said it, I knew it was a perfect idea! Not too sweet, but still a treat.
I put a little of the multi-colored buttercream in the middle and then a little at the top to hold the candy corn in place and then voila!
