Hi Everyone, I am a newlywed and have always loved to cook, bake, and entertain. Lately I decided to start making cakes and now I can't stop; whether its cakes, cupcakes, cake truffles, etc!! I just love everything about them... the creativity, versatility, and the love that they bring to those who eat them.

Minnie & Mickey Mouse Cake & Cupcakes!!!

Happy 3rd Birthday Haley!
As with all 3 year olds, Haley had a hard time deciding whether she wanted a Mickey or Minnie birthday party theme so her mom (my twin sister) decided to do both.   (How clever!) 
And since Haley was having two parties for her birthday (one for friends and one for family) this cake / cupcake stand worked out PERFECTLY.  The cupcakes were served at the party for friends, and the cake at the family party.
 I made a half Minnie and half Mickey cake to go on top of the stand, and then alternated Mickey and Minnie cupcakes throughout... sooooo cute!

Yes, these are mini york peppermint patties used for the ears!  (This was a special request from my twin, lol).
And here are a couple pictures of the party decor...
My twin did such a great job with ALL the decorations!  I have no idea how she found time or the effort for everything being that she is eight and a half months pregnant.  But everything turned out perfectly and Haley had a wonderful time at both parties.
Check out this Minnie and Mickey Mouse sign that my sister Melissa made... She is very creative with this type of stuff!
I just love these little goody bags / purses
And here is the birthday girl...
Family shot... (and nope that is not me, lol.  That is my twin sister)
