Description

The theme was 'apples' in turquoise and green. Betsy is the 'apple of our eye'. I made several things for this party, including, pennant bunting, Betsy's party dress, the invitations and thank you notes. But the thing I am most proud of is the apple shaped cake balls used for favors, and the two tiered caramel apple cake I made. It was the first tiered cake I attempted and it looked just the way I envisioned and tasted great, too! Submitted by : Beth Grebe

Project Details

I purchased most of the supplies from my local Hobby Lobby, and party store.
I bought the custom made fondant apples on the homemade cake from etsy shop Clineff's Confections.

I love Bakerella, and saw some apple shaped cake pops she had made.  I tweeked them a bit to fit the color scheme of the party.

Advice

Choose one or two colors.  Even if they aren't realistic to the theme.  It's something unexpected and makes decorating much easier.  Make a list!  Tackle things that can get done ahead of time a couple of weeks before so that the week of the party you can focus on set-up and the food.  Then, BREATHE!  Try and enjoy all of your hard work!
