My son turns one next week. I cannot believe how fast time has flown! It seems like just yesterday I was eagerly anticipating his arrival, and wondering if he would look more like my husband or more like me. For the record, I still don’t know.
We are celebrating his birthday this Saturday and I am making all kinds of goodies, including cupcakes. Since his nursery is jungle-themed, I decided to go with that theme for his birthday party. I saw a picture of a lion made out of fondant (cup-e-cake gang) and thought that’d be perfect to go on his special birthday cupcake. So, I am going to give you a sneak peek of the party preparations, with this little lion.
Here the little lion is drying. I used piping gel to “glue” the mane to the head.
This giraffe was a disaster. So much piping gel went into getting his head to stick to his body; and in the morning, his head was next to his legs. I thought about using a toothpick to secure his head, but was afraid I’d smoosh the head or body.
Eyes are in and he’s almost ready to make his debut!
Oh cute, little lion. How I love you and your cute, little belly button so…
More on this special day to come! xoxo
