This is what you’ll be making by course 3 of the Wilton Cake Decorating classes at Michael’s Craft Store.

Tonight was my final Wilton Cake Decorating class for Course 3 at Michael's craft store.  Next week I start Course 4 and I'm very excited.  I have absolutely loved attending these classes and learning how to decorate cakes that wow my kids. 

Just think, I could barely even slap a store-bought tub of icing on a cake a few months ago and now I'm doing this …

Coming from the cake queen herself, thank you :). Buttercream for the clown body. 3 colors in the piping bag, tip 21. Swirl in a circle and bring up to make the body then do the arms and legs separately.

This year I had a great idea for a party. A nice touch to any celebration is Balloons. Decorating my party with Balloons enhanced the happy party atmosphere. Now you might first think of helium filled balloons, the latex (or rubber) kind or the Mylar (foil) type. I got a few of those nice Mylar balloons that coordinated to my party theme. For the other balloons, I went with a more economical solution that made a rich party décor look without a high price. Then I thought about all of this running around for balloons was not really what I wanted to do. What if the balloons broke before I got them home? What if I realized later I didn’t buy enough? Would I have enough time to go back to the store and buy all over again?
That’s when I listened to my friend who recommended to me a great company called Life O ‘ The Party. Since 1980 Life O’ The Party has been the place for Balloons, Décor and Entertainment for every occasion – anytime, anywhere, nationwide. The home for exquisite event décor, custom centerpieces and props, costumed messengers, party entertainers and so much more. When I called them they said no order is too big or too small and I liked that very much. Life O’ The Party has grown steadily to become the metropolitan area’s premier novelty telegram, balloon, DJ and entertainment company. They have appeared many times on television as well. They appeared regularly on the NBC hit series “ED,” Third Watch” and “Law and Order”, on the very first “The Morning Show” on CBS, on Entertainment Tonight (ET), USA Network’s “UP All Night” and Fox Television’s “Good Day New York.”
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2009 featured 15,000 of their balloons, while World Cup USA welcomed their balloons on the field at Giants Stadium in New York and Foxboro Stadium in w:st=”on”Massachusetts for Opening Day festivities. In the movies, their balloons are featured in the blockbuster “Spiderman 3,” Ron Howard’s movie “Ransom,” “You’ve Got Mail” starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan and Oliver Stone’s latest epic “w:st=”on”World Trade Center.”
Life O’ The Party deals in balloons, decorating, party balloons, balloon delivery, party planner, clowns, magicians, DJ’s, musicians, fortune tellers, caricaturists, air-brush artists, singing telegrams. Karaoke, centerpieces, props, casino games, carnival games, entertainers, party entertainers, confetti cannons, balloon arches, balloon sculptures, balloon release, balloon drops, balloon bouquets, classic balloon décor, event decorating, photo favors, balloon printing, party favors, musicians and balloon twisting.
Its real specialties are Balloons (bouquets, centerpieces, arches & sculptures), Décor (centerpieces and total room makeovers) and Entertainment for every occasion – anytime, anywhere, nationwide.
