I can hardly believe that the kids are 3 already! We decided to keep the Little Bo Peep Found Her Sheep theme from their Halloween costumes for their birthday party. I saw some cute sheep cupcakes from a Martha Stewart cupcake contest. There were no instructions for the cupcakes and the person who came up with the idea was not credited by name. Here is the link to the picture on Martha Stewart’s website. My Mom and I used marzipan to craft the sheep’s head which is similar to shaping play dough. It comes in a roll (unrefrigerated) and you slice off what you need and refrigerate the rest. I got some candy eyes from the cake supply store where I also found tiny crispy rice decorations which is what we used to make the curls on the sheep’s head. I made fresh lemon cupcakes with lemon butter-cream frosting. We placed the mini-marshmallows all over the sheep which stuck to the frosting. The sheep’s head was placed on one side of the cupcake and mini-marshmallows were placed all around it. I was excited that the sheep’s head stuck right to the frosting without any support required.
They waited patiently to blow out their candles, each with mini-marshmallows and the number three.
I have been doing home preschool for a couple of months, but in
January, I plan to kick it into full gear now that their therapies are
done. What themes have you had for your children’s birthday parties?
