A party without some type of favor, how shameful.
My mother's 80th birthday had two types of favors.
the minty melt in your mouth comes in a little May basket look-a-like type of favor and
the beautiful 20 something picture of my mother on a cupcake pick topper stuck into gooey vanilla strawberry cake with extra rich butter cream frosting type of favor, (gotta love my mom's furry collar).
CRAFT TIP: The picture topper is an easy peasy project when you use a paper punch~
Cut out two pieces of cardstock with a medium to large scalloped paper punch.
Scan an old picture. I used photo gallery to make copies, and chose the contact sheet (32 on a page). It was the perfect size.Cut these out.
Glue large tooth pick between the two paper punches, and glue the two papers together, (I lined up the scallops).
Glue picture on top.
Cut the cake, or use cupcakes and then stick in the topper!
My 100% Norwegian mother had to have a Norwegian celebration cake!
It is a series of almond flavored rings with almond frosting. To serve it, you break off little pieces of each ring. IF you ask me, it was the BEST food item at the party, and yes I said FOOD!
