A Valentine Soiree

Another holiday..... another PARTY!! The girls wanted to have a little Valentine's get together for a few of their friends, and after getting some inspiration from my good friend Google, well, I got to work and tried to make it really special for them. I loved the idea of a candy table.... what kid (or grown up!) wouldn't love to dig into a table full of goodies?? I made some cupcakes and tried my hand at my first fondant roses.... then I decided to make a fondant cake, too. It was supposed to be a 2 tiered cake, but after I stopped for a while to get the girls ready for their Valentine's date with their dad, well, when I went back to the cake decorating the fondant had dried too much for me to finish the top tier like I had planned. OK, nothings perfect. The perils of fondant.... I just chalked it up to a first-timers learning curve and moved on to a single layer cake -- disappointed, but all in all, I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. So I've eaten nothing but candy and chocolate and marshmallow fondant for days..... that's mama's reward for spending days in the kitchen surrounding by nothing but sugar! Too bad mama's bikini won't agree.....

So the kids played some Valentine's games and they made a little felt rose craft to take home, and they of course, ate their weight in sugar-laden sweets. It was fun and a great reason to celebrate with just girlfriends..... who really needs those boys on Valentines Day anyway??? Kidding, Jonathan. Love you.
