… or Wizard of Oz themed party like I had- the rainbow backdrop set the scene for an Emerald City dessert display. The backdrop was made from crepe paper adhered to a wooden dowel with metallic tinsel sprinkled (cut from a metallic curtain.) This was inspired by a wedding backdrop I found here– her blog also has a great tutorial for assembling the streamers.
I have made a fringy-crepe backdrop before for a Christmas party and it took a few hours to assemble- this time around I used double-sided tape and hung the dowel before attaching the crepe which saved me a ton of time.

My favorite holiday is fast approaching and I can’t think of anything better than an Irish Car Bomb in cupcake form. Anyone else over the moon that St. Patrick’s Day is on a Saturday this year? I know I am!
For those of you who don’t know what an Irish Car Bomb is- it’s a horrible St. Patty’s Day drink where you drop a shot of Baileys into a glass of Guinness and try to chug the whole thing in one gulp before the Bailey’s curdles into disgusting chunks. I am not the type to chug my drinks so I always end up with curdled Bailey’s. Sick.
The Guiness bottle tops made the perfect finishing touch. I found the recipe for the cupcakes here – the Bailey’s ganache in the center was delicious but for some reason after being left out for a few hours it turned into the consistency of a truffle so I’d suggest leaving that part out if you do not plan to serve right away.
