Birthday Pool Party ( Momimhar posted on July 15th, 2017 )

Pool, balloons, party

There are a lot of fun things going on this summer vacation.  Besides swimming classes for darling daughter, birthday parties and special event invitations are keep coming in.

Yesterday, DD got invited to a birthday pool party.  It was not a Luau Party. Just a typical kids pool party.  Darling daughter enjoyed it very much. As you know, she likes swimming.  My dear friends and I watched over the young ones because the pool was quite deep.  That is why wearing a life preserver is very important even in a shallow pool.  Age-appropriate and US Coast Guard approved life jackets should always be handy, and adult supervision is advised on young children.

Friends, happy kids, birthday party

As for the party, my dear friends and I had fun catching up while the kids were swimming in the pool.  This is the very first time K and I went to a pool party.  There were lots of food and we met new friends. It was awesome.

Little Girls Birthday Decoration Inspiration DIY by A Friend ( Momimhar posted on October 8th, 2016 )

Kyana's birthday cake.

A friend of mine has two adorable daughters.  The youngest just turned 1 a couple of weeks ago.  Kyana had a simple yet a very cute party.  Her mom did all the birthday party decorations.  How awesome.  The cake was nicely decorated, too.  What a talented mother Kyana has.

Do-it-yourself or DIY birthday party decor can save you a lot of money.  If you are very creative, you can make your own party decorations from extra scrapbook supplies or unused paper goods in your home.  All we have to add to the creativity is a lot of motivation and diligence to do it.  There are so many DIY inspiration and resources on the Internet.  The moment you find the perfect decor inspiration, the urge will come after.  And you do not have to buy party decor every time.

Popping the Balloons Game

My darling daughter enjoyed at the party as well.  My friend prepared kids’ party games for the young guests.  K’s favorite was Popping the Balloons.  What’s funny was, the kids had to pick a certain colored balloon to pop yet they can pick whichever pretty much.  The game took a little while to finish.  🙂  Everybody got a prize though.

The cake and the food was delicious.  Everyone had a wonderful time at Kyana’s 1st birthday party.

Double Birthday Celebration Was A Blast ( Momimhar posted on March 5th, 2016 )

It was a very fun evening I had few weeks ago.  My best friend NJ and I had a double birthday celebration at her house in Forth Worth.  I am still cannot find the words how enchanted I was of how beautifully the party was planned and put together very successfully.  We both had not idea how the party would be like because there was no tiny hint.  Not one little bit.  Our dear friends were very good in hiding clues.  Would you believe that they did a Casino Themed Birthday Party? NJ and I like going to the casinos. 😀  We don’t do it very often but we enjoy going.

Anyway, it’s my 40th birthday and I can say that this was it was a big celebration to date.  NJ is in her late 20s already.  The last time we celebrated our birthday together was in 2009 when we were neighbors in Fort Worth. We went Downtown and had fun at the disco and karaoke at City Streets (now closed). Those were good times, I tell ya.

Lots of food. Yum.

Lots of food. Yum.

The party that night was a blast.  The decorations were amazing and the food was abundant.  Thanks to the guests who brought delicious American and Filipino foods.  In addition, NJ’s hubby and friends had set up a red carpet and casino.  NJ and I had a wonderful night on our birthday party.  They were very thoughtful with donating to my feeding program next month.  NJ, her sister, my daughter, and I are flying together to the Philippines for a vacation this month.  And one of the things in my agenda was having a small Thanksgiving feast for the children in my neighborhood.  I am excited about it.  It won’t be long and we will be in the Philippines.

Tips To Create Delightfully Decorated Cakes ( Momimhar posted on December 6th, 2015 )

Cake decorating is a rewarding hobby or full-time job. The cake decorator’s results and proficiency are easy to see. The right decorating supplies, along with the decorator’s techniques or finishing touches, make the difference. Adding roses, fondant accents, and borders to the cake takes a delicious confection to the next level.

The art of cake decorating and cake design have become more popular as millions of TV viewers watch master bakers and designers perform. Cake buyers want special design and customization when they order birthday or celebration cakes. Home bakers can also learn cake decorating to delight family and friends. Cake decorating supplies in Michigan are essential to novices and expert cake decorators.

Use the following tips to create delightfully decorated cakes:

Tip #1: Buy and use spatulas. Spatulas are a must when preparing a perfect cake for decoration. Cake crumbs on the surface can ruin the appearance of the most perfectly smooth icing.

Remove the cooled baked cake from the pan using a small spatula. Brush crumbs from the top. Add four tablespoons of corn syrup for a layer or larger cake to thin the icing. To ice or frost the cake, use the icing spatula to quickly spread the icing. Do not press the icing into the cake to avoid any crumbs.

Tip #2: Make swirls. Creating swirls adds a simple but fancy appearance to the cake. Hold an icing-filled decorating bag with desired tip at a 90 degree angle about 1/4th inch from the cake surface. Start at the outer rim of the cake and work in an inward direction. To add visual interest, pipe a second spiral on top of the first.

Tip #3: Write on the cake. Adding a name or phrase to the iced cake adds a speech touch. Fill the decorating bag about half full with thin icing. Select and attach the decorating tip. Don’t point the tip down towards the cake: elevate it a bit and use steady pressure to create a steady line.

Allow the decorative icing to drop onto the iced surface and then pull the tip away. Before writing another word, check the decorating tip and clean it to ensure best results.

Conclusion

Cake decorating is a fun and enjoyable way to make celebrations even more special. Consider taking a cake decorating class to more quickly master the art of cake decoration.
