“Cupcakes” #1

13 Apr

Hi and welcome to my very first edition of My Birthday Party’s newsletter entitled Cupcakes.

Each Friday I will share everything I have discovered during my week on all things party.

This week has seen one of the biggest chocolate parties of all -Easter. I don’t know about you, but this year I ‘downscaled’ my children’s Easter booty and gave them an Easter bag from the ‘Easter Mummy’ as I discovered they no longer believe in that scariest of scary’s – the evil Easter Bunny. Speaking of which, here is a link to some evil-looking Easter Bunnies and their unsuspecting victims… “Funny Easter Pictures: Kids v The Easter Bunny”.

Here is a preview of one of the weirdest, scariest, Easter bunnies I’ve seen:

Oreo is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and have published some yummy-kid-friendly-sugar-high-birthday-party-only food (phew, what a mouthful!). Here is one recipe that I am going to be trying in the coming weeks: it’s called Oreo Party on a Stick and you can find the recipe here.

One of my all-time favourite stationary stores, kikki-k, has a fabulous offer leading up to Mother’s Day. Just spend $50 in store and receive a $20 gift voucher free! They have a lovely new range called ‘Organisk’ as well as a ‘Breakfast In Bed Kit’ for Mother’s Day for $14.95. I know how much my daughter enjoys making me brekky in bed on this day so I am going to find a ‘secret agent’ to slip her the pack without me knowing! Head to kikki-k to take up the $20 voucher here and check out the Breakfast In Bet Kit here.

A new feature of My Birthday Party is the ‘Happy Birthday’ Page. If you would like to feature a loved one’s birthday with a special greeting and photo, you can now do it on this very website! All you have to do is email a photo, their birthdate to mybirthdayparty@hotmail.com.au and I will feature their photo (and age if you wish) as the front page of this website on their birthday.

If you are looking for some great cupcake decorating ideas, then I highly recommend you head over to Cupcake City on Facebook and ‘like’ their page. They have fantastic range of cupcake stands, wrappers and decorations for you to buy. However, the real bonus is once you’ve ‘liked’ their page you can download a copy of cupcake icing recipes for free!  “The Only 7 Cupcake Icing Recipes You’ll Ever Need” & Cupcake City can be found be clicking here.

Here is a picture from their Princess Themed Party range available for $9.95 (set of 12).

FINALLY… as a celebration of the first “Cupcakes” newsletter, I am giving away 20 copies of my ebook: “My Birthday Party: Awesome Children’s Birthday Parties” absolutely free! If you would like a copy of this comprehensive guide which includes step-by-step instructions on over 15 themed children’s parties, then simply follow me on Facebook! The first 20 likes will receive a copy. Already like the Facebook page? Anyone who refers a friend will also receive a copy (max. 20 copies in total).  To find my Facebook page then simply click here.

So that’s a wrap up of all things party for this first “Cupcakes” newsletter. As always, I will point out that I am not paid to endorse products and only ever recommend things I have tried myself. I appreciate your feedback, so feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.

Until next time,

Jo
