It’s a Bug Birthday!

Avalon is one 3 year old girl who loves bugs! LOVES bugs. I think it shows just what a unique little girl she is and this year Liz wanted her Birthday party to reflect that. Let’s take a look at the amazing details from the party, including of course, the incredible bug themed cake which will be a future tutorial here on the Sugar Geek Show!

Lovely cupcakes decorated using Russian Piping Tips. If you haven’t tried the Russian Tips yet you really really should! They are an amazing quick way to decorate a cupcake and make it look fabulous! Of course any good bug themed party should have pretty flowers.
