This past weekend we celebrated my niece Emma’s 7th birthday with a Minnie Mouse themed party. \nI made her a cake, cupcakes, and some cookies for her party and they turned out great.\nThe cake is a three layer white cake with vanilla buttercream. I made 24 cupcakes that were white with vanilla buttercream as well.\n[ATTACH=full]1725[/ATTACH] \n\n[ATTACH=full]1723[/ATTACH] \n\n[ATTACH=full]1724[/ATTACH] \n\nThese sugar cookies I made are incredible. Everyone who ate them at the party were raving about them. They were that good. \nThey are Mickey Mouse shaped with a vanilla glaze on some and chocolate sizzle on the others. \n\n(This is definitely the sugar cookie recipe I will be using for Christmas this year)\n\n[ATTACH=full]1726[/ATTACH] \n\n[ATTACH=full]1727[/ATTACH] \n\n[ATTACH=full]1728[/ATTACH] \n\nI also made some molasses cookies plus a really big one for my niece who loves them. \n\n[ATTACH=full]1729[/ATTACH] \n\n[ATTACH=full]1730[/ATTACH] \n\n\nIt was a lot of work but the week before the party I set a schedule for myself. Like on Tuesday I made the buttercream and baked the sugar cookies. On Wednesday I baked the cakes. On Thursday I decorated the cake and cupcakes and iced the sugar cookies and on Friday I baked the molasses cookie. \nI find that when I have a lot to get done I absolutely have to make myself a schedule to keep from getting overwhelmed. And to make sure everything gets done.
