For our 4th of July get-together I made Martha Stewart’s Favor Rockets, but I used them to stuff the plastic silverware, napkin and straws inside. Super cute stuff I think! For her instructions go HERE.  I added personal bling with glitter pow’s at the top.  After the meal the Short one and the Smallest one had a ball playing rockets together.


Happy Independence Day! I created a 4th of July cake using the silicone giant cupcake pan. I had been wanting one of these for a while now and my auctioneer Dad found one for me a couple of weeks ago so I was ready to test it out. It was actually a bit harder to use then I had imagined and I definitely need to practice more!

I frosted the cake with my Butter-crème Icing and then used cans of  Wilton Color Mist in red and blue on the surface. I cut “4th of July” and fire crackers out of red glitter paper on my Cricut using the Independence Day cartridge. I then attached the the paper cut outs to wooden skewers and placed them onto the cake. The short one added the final decorations of red, white and blue star shaped marshmallows.

Sadly, it is now a daily norm to have Phoenix temperatures hit 112 degrees so the cake started to melt almost immediately but hey it all goes down into the mouth and tastes the same no matter if it is pretty or not and it tasted delicious.

Happy crafting xoxo.  Follow me on Twitter I am Lab5.
