I was contactedÂ for Tatum and Steffen’s engagement party. Stephanie, a family friend, wanted to order something special and personal. She explained to me that the future bride loves balloons, pink, and Butterfinger.
First of all I love theÂ fact thatÂ sheÂ likes balloons. Do you remember Jerky Boys? TheyÂ sold millions of tapes of their prankÂ calls and my particular favorite is “Rosine likes balloons.” Unfortunately, it is far too inappropriateÂ to post here, but if you don’t get offended easily then look it up on YouTube.
Either way, balloons rock. I had balloon arches at my sweet 16. No need for a car, or Lil’ Wayne to sing one song for $50,000. Just a bunch of balloons.
I had likeÂ five of these. Okay, maybe only two but who’s counting?
At my next birthday party I want to find the balloon artist who made this:
Toilet humor is always my favorite.
Anyhoo back to the engagement party. I needed to make cake pops, cookies and cupcakes. It took some thought, but I managed to incorporate all three concepts.
Stephanie said I could just make some cupcakes andÂ sprinkle ButterfingerÂ on top.Â I wanted to make them over the top Butterfinger, so Â it imply would not suffice. The cupcakes were madeÂ with devil’s food and ButterfingerÂ bits in the batter. I created a cocoa andÂ ButterfingerÂ fluffy frosting. I also filled the middle of the cupcake with a little Butterfinger creamÂ filling. Yeah, like I said, I like to go over the top.
As if there were not enough Butterfinger, I topped each cuppieÂ with a piece of the candy.Â Pink had to beÂ somewhere on the cupcakes, so I decided combining the requested color of pink with the brown of the Butterfinger would look nice.
Pink cake pops!
I just loved how these came out. Balloon sugar cookies covered in pink royal icing. I made them more personal by adding the future bride and groom’s name. Then, I added a brown and pink ribbon. One of my favorite cookie creationsÂ so far.
I think Tatum and Steffen liked the treats?..?..?
These are my kind of people.
Congratulations Tatum and Steffen!
