I volunteered to take care of the tower cupcake. I inquired to one of the cupcake seller in multiply and attempted to order. It took 5 days for the exchange of messages (excluding the days the multiply seller didn’t reply in my emails) and when I was about to order, unfortunately, the delivery of the cupcake tower won’t make it on the day I needed it. I didn’t tell Collyn and other friends about it because I do not want to disappoint them. I do not want to hear “it’s okay” when in fact it’s not, considering I had enough time to order it.
It’s already Saturday and the event will be held at night. I got in touch with cupcake sellers I know who owns cupcake tower and ask if I can rent it and VIOLA…NOT AVAILABLE! I was so unlucky that day...I got stressed!!! Then I thought of the DIY cupcake stand I read in one of the blogs I follow. I run into the craftstore to buy all the materials needed and assembled everything with the help of my little girl Acey. It may not be a 5 tier cupcake tower as originally planned, it’s just a mini cupcake stand AND when I saw the finish product in the picture with the actual cake and cupcakes on it, oh boy, you’ll agree with me if I say it’s a BEAUTIFUL mini cupcake stand. This is one of the nicest and cutest thing I’ve done in my entire life. Here are the photos and let me know what you think…

I made hotdog & cheese sandwich ala Jolly Hotdog two Saturdays ago and baguette pizza for today. Incidentally, my son’s classmate who happens to be a distant relative was here to enjoy the snack as well.
Our tummies are full and happy.
Have a great weekend!!!

CJ was captain John Smith while Acey was a little fairy. I wore black top, jeans and higheeled black shoes and tried to copy the seductive vampire make up of Michelle Phan minus the contact lens. Unfortunately, I didn't have close up picture because I was busy taking photos of my kids. I used Acey's headband with a black flower to match my get up, I actually planned on putting a tool on it and some feathers to make it look like an empire hat just like what the designer Mich Dulce was known for, but there was not enough time for me to execute my kikay idea.
We arrived at the venue on time and I brought chocolate rumble from goldilocks. The hosts of the event were busy arranging the candies, materials for the games and making the venue spooky looking. Whenever guests would arrive, they get giddy taking pictures of the venue, the food plus kids wearing costume.
Kids enjoyed the candies more than the food. They got energized after the first game which was the "donut eating contest" and I did an impromptu hosting for the second game because my batchmate was already exhausted and requested me to facilitate the "picture perfect" game.
It was another memorable Halloween event for my kids. CJ and Acey's pumpkin baskets were almost 100% filled with candies and they shared some with their cousin the next morning.
