Bitty Bites......................a Sweet Seventeen!
Yum Yum! Emma (number 4 and the only one left at home) had a birthday in January, but no time to celebrate. She had finals and then flew to Boston to visit Annie at BU (big excitement there - they scored tickets to the big Bostoun U v Boston College hockey game and Emma was hit in the top of her head by a hockery puck and had 3 staples, which were removed this week!). She planned her birthday party for today - cupcakes! She baked about 250 mini cupcakes and invited her friends over to decorate.
We went through 10 pounds of powdered sugar, 6 pounds of butter, a pound of cream cheese and almost a quart of whipping cream.
M&Ms, crushed oreos and peanut butter cups, a rainbow of colored sugar, and sprinkles galore were all ready to decorate. I think we made 20 decorating bags of frosting - Wilton would be proud!
Each girl got a take-out box to take her creations home in. They were very creative. It was nice to listen to them sit and chat as they worked. No boy drama, no mean girl activities, just a nice, relaxing afternoon to spend with their friends. I am thankful for times like these!
After the carnage!
Wish you all could have been here!
