Parties by WH Hostess: Baking Party {Part II}

Our baking party feature from the latest issue of The Party Dress Magazine continues with all of the sweet details of our cheerful dessert table.  Charynn and I crafted colorful cake stands  to complete the look of this table (be on the lookout for the DIY tutorial later this afternoon), which highlighted a variety of custom desserts.  A coordinating pennant banner crisscrossed across the wall as a backdrop, and we spray-painted a vintage chalkboard turquoise to list off the specials of the day.

We dressed up a store-bought cake with a few charming decorations by Two Sugar Babies: a fondant number 5 and cherries were placed on top of the cake, and Charynn placed two rows of red hot candies around the side of the cake to add a touch of color.

A colorful “malt ball shoppe” was placed center stage, with clear canisters full of candy.  Each embellished with ribbon and a circle tag featuring the coordinating images from our baking party collection, and signage was placed in a lucite box frame.

It wouldn’t be a party (especially a baking party!) without cupcakes!  Grouped together on one large cake stand, or placed on the individual ones, these cupcakes looked extra special with darling, coordinating toppers by Two Sugar Babies.

Darling cookies from Sugarbelle’s, glass jars full of colorful ribbon candy were adorned with candy jar tags, and jumbo marshmallows {dipped in chocolate and sprinkles} wore coordinating cupcake toppers.

In addition to their malt balls, guests each took home a “cupcake in a jar”.  So simple to make, simply layer cake and frosting in a mason jar, top with some ribbon, a gift tag and voila!  The perfect end to a darling party.
