What is better than presents?
Presents Packaged like Cupcakes.
One of my best friends just had a the most perfect little baby boy! Taylor and I were teenage drama queens together, we have literally been through it all and I love her dearly. We go back like car seats- now she has her very own baby car seat in the back of her ride. She is one fearless lady and is one of a kind. But Whoa, Where has the time gone? Its feels like yesterday when I was filled with good intentions, but was still a little wild child and now I'm a real live grown-up, kind of. hahah! Seems, everyone we have ever known is now having babies or getting married- we're getting old! NO-Wait, we're just getting better, not older. hahaha!
This is from her Mustache bash baby shower, a few months ago when I had flown down to Florida for a much anticipated visit. I wanted to get her a gift that was cute, useable, sentimental, fun, and reasonable- it was tough to decide and this lady has impeccable taste, so I had to choose something good! I picked out the cutest onesies and little hipster socks, some classic books: Where All the Wild Things Are, Good Night, Moon, and The Hungry Caterpillar, and lastly I added homemade mustache shaped sugar cookie pops. Little Wyatt was born February19th at 6 LBs, 13 oz and 18 inches. He was born surrounded by so much love and I can't wait to fly down in the fall so I can meet this little bugger!
In this post, I will show you guys the fab soiree thrown in Wyatt's behalf and how to make these awesome little sock-onesie style cupcakes! They are so easy and make a simple present way more fun!
You Will Need:
-1 Cellophane Window Cake Box
| FIRST lay the onesie face down, fold the sleeves inward so you have a neat rectangle and then fold again in half so you have tight strip. |
| NEXT place a single sock on the edge with the toe sticking out just a touch. |
| THEN begin tightly rolling the onesie upward letting the toe and top of the sock stick out. |
| FINALLY after it is rolled up tight pull the bottom of the sock up over the the bottom half of the rolled onesie. |
| LASTLY, line the cake box with tissue paper and place the "cupcakes" in the foils and place inside the box. Now you can pack the box out with 6-8 "cupcake" rolls or simple place additional items in edges of the box where there is no cellophane window. |
| Wrap with a little ribbon or raffia, whatever you have handy. |
| I like to recycle newspaper using it to wrap whatever I can. Its all in the little things. |
