Graduating from the same school her mom & I graduated from 20+ yrs ago (we won't count the actual years)... just leave it at that.
Alyssa was on the cheerleading squad so I went with that theme in our school colors..red, black and white.
I made my 1st pennant banner out of fondant & royal icing for her cake. I decided to put it on
white fondant so it would be easier to place on the cake. I love the way it looks...so cute!
Thanks to my aunt, I copied her cheerleader (see below) and made my own. Figures are hard to copy and I really struggle with faces. My aunt made a face I could copy... wait til you see my Dora figure this week. It took me 5 tries to get her eyes just right but I DID IT! The pompoms were easy, I just cut strips 3/4" x 1" of fondant then cut slices in it. I laid the red on the white, then wrapped them around the bottom of the arms, again copying my aunt. This made it so easy!
Here's my aunt's fimo clay cheerleader.. isn't she darling? (Thank you auntie for making her for me) My aunt is so darn creative, her fimo work is amazing. Many years ago she made bread dough ornaments that were so detailed and absolutely adorable. My little sister (about age 3-4 at the time) decided to eat them - shellac and all off the Christmas tree! She's lucky she didn't get sick.
Wishing the Class of 2012 best of luck in the future!
