Easter Cupcakes ~ Bunnies & Nests {Bake & Decorate}

Easter Cupcakes by Sassaby Easter Nest Cupcake by Sassaby   Fluffy Easter Bunny Cupcake by Sassaby

Get Baking this Easter and make your own Cute Cupcakes!

 

We used a simple Vanilla Cupcake Recipe and Decorated with Whipped Cream.

 

Easter Bunny Cupcakes: When Cupcakes have cooled, cut a circle out of the centre of the Cupcake, then fill with whipped cream. Cut Cake Circle in half, place into cream as Bunny Ears.  
 

Easter Nest Cupcakes: Cut circle out of the centre and fill with whipped cream. Add Spun Sugar Nest and top with Chocolate Speckled eggs.

 

To make Spun Sugar Nests: Place 1 Cup of sugar, 1/2 cup water into a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved. Raise heat to high, and bring mixture to a boil. Continue cooking until amber in color. Remove from heat, and briefly plunge the saucepan into ice water to stop the cooking. Let stand to thicken slightly, about 1 minute. Use immediately.

 

Spray the back of a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Dip a fork into the sugar and drizzle around each muffin cup in a circular motion.  Let harden completely. Nests should easily come off cups.

 

Enjoy! xo Amy

Backyard Cars Party 11

 

Welcome to Four Town! The ‘Cars Capital’ of Aiden’s 4th Birthday Party.

 

Created by the very talented & crafty Sharon, this Backyard Cars Party was an absolute hit with the kids (Drivers) and their parents (Pit Crew).

 

The guests were greeted by Safety Cones and a tower of Red & Black balloons, with a sign directing them to the fun ahead.

 

Then, the kids got to pick their own handmade cardboard box cars, complete with paper plate wheels, from the Car Park, and had the chance to fill up with Petrol at the Petrol Station, and Change & ‘Pump Up’ their Tyre’s and Check Oil & Tyre Pressure in Luke’s Auto & Tyre Shop. There was even a Car Wash complete with Bubble wrap, Foam Guide Poles, Balloons and Streamers!

 

Car Town was made complete with Cardboard Box Traffic Lights, Stop Signs & Give Way Signs. A giant chalkboard allowed the kids to get creative and a colouring table full of cars pictures gave them the chance to have a rest from all that driving.

 

For snacks, the kids were treated to car themed foods and a delicious themed birthday cake.

 

With most of this party being handmade and created from Cardboard and Paint, Sharon said it was very inexpensive, if not a little time consuming to create. As you can tell, this party was well worth the effort because it looks amazing, and the smiles on the kids faces speak absolute volumes!

 

Great Job Sharon ~ What a fantastic Party idea!

Handmade Paper Christmas Wreath {How to}

Sassaby Christmas Paper Wreath sm

 

Create this Easy Do-it -Yourself Handmade Christmas Paper Wreath simply using a wreath base, an old book, some sticky tape, and a touch of Christmas Creative Flair!

 

You will Need:

 

1 x Sheet of 50mm thick Corflute (available at Office Supply Stores)

1 x 50cm piece of string

1 x Old Book

A Stanley Knife

A Pencil

Sticky Tape

Scissors

Double Sided Poster Tape (optional)

 

Sassaby Paper Wreath How To 1

 

Step 1

 

Decide how large you would like your wreath. Keep in mind that the wreath will end up being around 8-10cm wider when finished. Our wreath was cut at 45cm Diameter.

 

When you know the size you want, tie your piece of string to your pencil. Find the centre of the corflute and measure the size you need from the pencil to the end of the string.

 

Hold the string in the centre at your desired diameter in the centre with your finger, and draw/move the pencil around the edge, creating a circle as you do so.

 

Leave a gap of about 10cm, then repeat this step to create your inner circle.

 

Carefully cut your wreath shape out of the corflute with a stanley knife. Puncture two holes of the corflute on the wreath at the top, and cut a piece of string of about 20cm, then thread your string through the holes to create your hanger.

 
 

Step 2

 

Open your old book and start carefully pulling the pages out from the spine, so you have several individual pages.

 

Fold each page of the book into thirds, lengthways, to form a zig zag fold.

 

It’s a good idea to fold several pages, so you can get sticking easily with lots of pages ready.

 

Sassaby Christmas Paper Wreath How To 2

 

Step 3

 

Begin sticking your folded book leaves to your wreath base with an overlap of the edge of about 5cm. Slightly fold the bottom of each book leaf under so it sits up a little.

 

Use as much sticky tape as you need, you won’t see it at the end.

Continue to add book leaves on top of each other – spaced about 5cm, and overlapping, around the entire wreath.

 

Sassaby Christmas Paper Wreath How To 3

 

step 4

 

When you have completed the first layer, continue to add your folded book leaves on a second level (picture 4), making sure there is a 2-3cm gap between the edge of the first layer, and the edge your next layer, but also a 1-2cm gap between where you are sticking the leaves and the inner edge of the wreath (to leave room for a 3rd layer) picture 5).

 

Sassaby Paper Wreath How To 4

 

step 5

 

When you have completed your second layer, begin adding book leaves for a third layer (picture 6).

 

However, this time, fold the bottom of the folded leaf under the inside wreath edge, and stick at the back, giving the wreath a nice finish, and covering up your ‘mechanics’ (picture 7).

 

Again, use as much sticky tape as you need to, especially on the back, as it’s clear and won’t be seen.

 

Sassaby Paper Wreath How To 5

 

step 6

 

When you have added book leaves all the way around your wreath, and made sure the inner edge has a nice clean finish, place & tape the last leave under the first book leaf, to create a seamless fan effect.

 

Decorate your wreath with Paper decorations such as stars or holly and attach with double sided poster tape if desired, or just use sticky tape folded onto itself.
