Do you know Bird? Yes, of course you do. Wait, there’s one or two of you who don’t? You must immediately. She’s an insanely talented party gal. This is the Bird’s Party blog. And she also works her techno-graphic magic to create fantastic magazines, available both free online and as a paper copy for purchase. You’ll want to see the latest issue for Spring/Summer 2012, and I’m not just saying that because yours truly is honored to have a couple of her own ideas in there. I’m saying that because it’s 182 pages of bright and colorful ideas and how-tos for birthday, Olympics and graduation parties. Oh yeah, and also 4th of July, golf, mother’s day and Spring parties. And a pancake brunch and a circus party and a street party. Themes range from rustic to modern, classic to whimsical. Think fondant chickens, pie pops, candy keys, clown or mermaid cupcakes and pineapple centerpieces. All in one issue.
I was lucky to contribute some Olympics-themed treats. First, I made these
mini cupcakes with fondant toppers that represent (almost) all of the sports and a couple for the host town, London.
I also made some sparkly Olympics rings cookies, a bigger version of bite-size cookies I made a couple years ago.
The how-tos for both the cupcakes and the cookies are found in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Bird’s Party Magazine.
Enjoy!! And thank you to Bird!
