Pacifier Cupcakes

These are the cupcakes I served. I took two mint lifesaver, and "glued" them together using royal icing. I let that dry, then "glued" a Jelly Belly brand jelly bean to it. Very cute, and you can eat it! Pacifier Inspired.
Royal Icing: 1 egg white and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice whipped together, stir in 1 cup powder sugar

Diaper Cake

For my friend's baby shower I made up this diaper cake. It was pretty simple. I used size 2 diapers, making three tiers around a bottle of champagne. I chose the green ribbon and flowers based off of the color of the pattern of the diapers. It took about 50 for the first layer, 25 for the second and 7 for top.

Rainbow Gelatin

  • 2 packets of 3 oz red raspberry gelatin
  • 2 packets of 3 oz lemon gelatin
  • 2 packets of 3 oz blue raspberry gelatin
  • 3 packets of Knox gelatin

Boil 2 cups of water, stir in 2 packets of blue raspberry and 1 packet of Knox gelatin until dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup ice. Once the ice melts, pour into a 9 x 13 Pyrex. Allow to set for 3 hours, repeat with lemon then red raspberry. While trying to photograph it, Connor kept getting his paws on it.
