My baby turned 3 years old June 29th! *tear*
We went out to eat with my parents and Nate's on the Friday of her birthday. Then we invited everyone back to our place for cupcakes! And we invited close friends over to also enjoy some yummy caterpillar cupcakes.
The cupcakes that made up the caterpillar were my white cake recipe, with his head being baked in a giant cupcake pan. I made the cupcakes funfetti, too. :) The frosting is a basic butter frosting that I tinted light green. I added some green and blue stripes of food coloring to my piping bag before adding the frosting in so that when it comes out, it has swirls of color. Be warned, this does tend to help turn lips and tongues blue. :)
We threw a big party the following weekend. As you can guess from the cupcake cake in the above pictures, Abby asked for a Very Hungry Caterpillar party. I was excited about this...and, I'll admit, a little scared. I mean, this isn't the kind of theme where, at the last minute, I can run out to Party City and get whatever I didn't get around to doing. A little intimidating, right? The whole decoration of this party rests on me. No pressure. ;)
