We had a dinner of chili and cornbread to start off the party and I decided to make place cards.
styrofoam balls, ribbon, pipe cleaners, white pom poms, pins and beads. The tutorial for making them is from Free Kids Crafts. I modified it slightly. Instead of just pinning on the eyes I glued them and I got rid of the arms and song book.
Finally we have the cakes. First I made my son a smash cake.
The cake for everyone else was, of course, a snowman cake.
Cake Central's cake galleries. I modified it of course to fit what I wanted. The snowman is made from styrofoam balls covered in frosting. His eyes and buttons are chocolate chips and his nose is an orange M&M. His scarf are three pipe cleaners and his hat his made from ribbon with some white pom poms.
The cake itself is simply white boxed cake with a little bit of almond extract and some aqua blue food coloring gel.
