Reese's Pieces Birthday

(Invitation made by Ashlee over at )
This post is a year late! I threw this party when my 2 year old turned 1. A year later I would have done a lot better taking pictures of the different things I did, but oh well, you learn something everytime! I think I'll do this party again someday when she is older, becuase after all, her name is Reese!
The Table:
The banner:
The cake (this was made with a cookie pan) Was Peanut Butter Pound cake with chocolate frosting and Chocolate fondant.

The craft: We made our own Giant Peanut Butter cups. Using coffee liners we poured chocolatein the bottom, then placed (already prepared) flattened P.B rounds in the middle and topped off with more chocolate. Then refridgerated to take home

My cutie scared of the candle.
I know 1 year olds arn't "supposed" to have peanut butter, but with a name like reese she couldn't be allergic! And I'm not a paranoid mommy.
The game. I had everyone right down as many Reese's Peanut Butter product they could think of (including holiday shapes) in 1 min. (I can't remember now but I believe I had found 43 different kinds) and the winner got that huge candy bar pictured below.

Teapot Cake

This teapot is actually hollow like a real teapot. Made out of chocolate then covered in fondant, the lid comes off to fill with candy! The base (table) is the actual cake! It was a fun challenge to take on!
