Savory Sunday {11} The Hubsters Birthday Party

Pin It So I made these great cupcakes for my Hubs' birthday. It was in March. Yeah, just a little slow getting this up. Whatevs.

Does your house ever look like this while you're preparing for a party?






Stuff on every counter. I barely had room to get all the cooking done! We had a fajita cookout for my husband and his twin brothers 28th birthday, and everything turned out great! I made baked jalapeno poppers, bean dip, and these really tasty Samoa Cupcakes. They both love samoas, and I found this great recipe at chef in training (click on the samoa link above to see the recipe!). Well, I didn't actually get around to making all the cupcakes I wanted to. I'm still working on getting my timing down when it comes to parties, and apparently I didn't schedule quite enough time to get it all done. But what I was able to get done, was make one very large cupcake. And it was awesome! It had cream filling and everything!



And to display the dessert, I also made these fun cakes stands in coordinating colors to the plastic flatware I bought at the dollar store!


These were super easy to make. All it took was some dollar store candle sticks and plates, spray paint, and a little E6000. Wham Bam.

All in all it was a great time with friends and family! And I love throwing parties, so it was a win win!

Have you thrown any parties lately?

Until Next Time.....

Yum. Did they have a good birthday? My little boy was 3 last Saturday but his party is in a few weeks.

You just need to say "cupcake" and "samoa" in the same sentence and I am all over that! NOM. Looks like it was a great party!
