I am happy to report that my book launch party was a roaring success! I had a ton of fun on the day, and I think my guests did, too.
I really wanted the event to be kid-friendly, both so my own kids could attend, and so more of my friends could come. To help with that, I sketched out a couple of my cake designs and turned them into coloring pages to keep the kids occupied. It definitely worked, and as a bonus, I got to see how my designs would look in different colors.
I also thought it would be nice to let people have a little Fun with Frosting themselves, so instead of providing a cake, I set up a decorate-your-own-cupcake bar that was for sure the hit of the day. After a quick demo at the start, I let everyone loose at the table, and much joy ensued. In fact, my own kids had so much fun they went around volunteering to decorate cupcakes for the adults.
It was a great day, and I’d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who came out and supported me! And now, I think I’m going to sleep for a week.
