The banner was precut and ready to assemble at the Party 101 class I took at the Art Weekend in Salt Lake City, hosted by none other than the fabulous Brittany of One Charming Party. A little secret...I was so slow making it, my brother started wondering what was taking me so long. Brittany helped me finish it up and even gave me an extra cupcake to sweeten up my brother and his friend from being mad that I was super late. She was super nice and funny. She offered loads of helpful tips for party planning, if you ever get the chance to go to one of her classes - do!
In her class, she had the cutest simple white cake with cut marshmallows around the top and bottom. I baked a cake from box mix (apparently is so rare for me that my hubby even commented on it) and iced it with a container of frosting. Around the bottom I lined up candy corn. Festive and easy with no mess. Add sprinkles to cover the slightly less than even icing, stick a pick in it and done.
