This party started out as a quiet dinner just for family. Then someone mentioned a Milk & Cookie party and knew I had to use this theme. It was perfect for my little Emily who was turning three. The child drinks a gallon of milk a week and loves everything sweet. I blame it on the fact that I never let her have sugar when she was very young (remember the post about her first birthday cake - applesauce cake with no sugar). I guess when she finally got her first taste, she knew she had to make up for lost time! Also, this type party made it easy on me as I had my mom and sister make batches of cookies to help.
|Guests were greeted at the door by an "E" for Emily made of Cookie Crisp. I left it up for a couple of days after the party because when you walked in the front door, you got a whiff of cookies!|
|These are sugar cookies and I used edible markers on homemade white sugar cookie icing to write "MILK".|
|This was a FABULOUS recipe but very rich. Thanks to Food Network for another great recipe. I had to double the amount of chocolate ganache on top in order to get an even coat. Also my first time working with fondant and I was pretty surprised at how easy it was!|
|Emily's outfit was designed by Etsy seller, BellaGrace Creations. Doesn't she look cute with her hand on her hip?!|
|I didn't let anyone escape without taking home a bag of cookies and a milk. Emily had a wonderful birthday. I can't believe she's already 3!!!|
