~ {Part Two} ~

Well let's chalk it up to experience:) Since it was their last year in business O'Brady's had a record turn out! It was soo busy and very festive-all the employees dress up sportin' green;)
Below is the stuff I used for decorating the cupcakes: Green flaky sprinkles, gold pearl dust, tiny heart cut-out, letter cut-outs, and fondant. Everything except the letters came from Michaels, the letters I got from Wal*mart. I didn't end up using the gold coins-they just didn't look quite right. Fondant is actually not nearly as hard as I thought it was. I can't wait to use it again:)

I used the tiny hearts to make the shamrocks.

Green velvet cake-so good, and another first for me:)

O'Brady's is on an intersection where the county decided to put in a big 4 lane Hi-way therefore causing O'Brady's to close:(

Some more fondant:)

Green ice cream!!

Some of the window art.
Face painting! They had some awesome face painters:)

As promised O'Brady's Potato Soup

1 lg.can {or 4 small cans} potato soup
5 c. half and half
1-1/2 c. potatoes diced
1 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped bacon or more if ya like;)
