Well the 'party' was a smashing success! I have several pictures to share, but just realized that there are NONE of the Jell-O octopus...I actually forgot to put her out for the party...OOPS! An inspiration forgotten LOL! The cupcakes were as yummy as they were cute, and everyone loved the octo-dogs! Emma really enjoyed being the center of attention as she blew out her candles (of course!). One of her favorite gifts, the bubble machine, was a big hit with all of the kids.
Today's secret revealed...piping the icing is definitely the way to go...BUT don't try to cut corners and use a big zip-top bag instead of a pastry bag...trust me!
