Cookies And Cupcakes And Cake...My First Graduation Open House!

 My first graduation open house.
My son's.
I survived!
I didn't know what I was doing.
I went into it blindly, but I "think" I did pretty good!
Son says it was a success!
If he's happy, I'm happy!
I thought all of the food and decorations turned out pretty great.
You can read more about the actual open house and see all of the decorations on my personal blog at:
 I made chocolate and vanilla cut-out cookies.
I flooded them with glaze and did royal icing detailing.
But first I played with my new airbrush and some stencils.
I'm still getting the hang of that thing.
It's gonna be a while before I perfect it, but it's fun to play with!
 Some more of the cookies...

We served cupcakes to all of the guests, but I told my son that we had to have a bigger cake in school colors with his name...even if it were just for looks!  LOL!
We decided it would serve as "back-up" if we ran out of cupcakes, LOL!  With an open house, you never know how many guests you'll end up with!  Thankfully we had plenty of cupcakes.
I did a frozen buttercream transfer for our Chix mascot logo.
 I added his name on the front/side in cookies!
 We did a yellow cake with classic buttercream.
 I thought it was pretty cute!
 I added cookie pops to his graduating year!
We served chocolate, french vanilla, and confetti cupcakes.
I did a vanilla buttercream and a chocolate almond buttercream.
Don't forget to check out the full party post on my other blog!
Congratulations Evan!
We're so proud of you!
