GOODe Project: And the Veggie Continues

My veggie tales charms for Miss Add’s birthday cupcakes are finally made.



It is a GOODe thing too because 1) the birthday is this weekend and 2) I got caught mid-veggie last night by a certain three year old who is now convinced that her mommy waits until she goes to bed to play with secret veggie tales toys…


I am glad these little boogers are made… I was beginning to worry that I wasn’t going to get them done.


For step by step pics on how I made Bob and Larry, check out my earlier veggie post.
Below is how I threw together dear Ole Junior :)


I started out with a bit of a cone shape on top and added the whites of my eyes.


Added my nose and the buds on the asparagus.


Finished off with the rest of the eyes, a little teeth action and his little cap.


I then poked toothpicks into the bottom of each character and removed. My plan is to bake them sans toothpick so that I can insert the toothpick for the cupcakes, but remove for playtime afterward.
The letters on the other hand will be baked with the toothpick since that is their only purpose.

Aghh Check out those peas too stinking cute!

Those are super-cute, Cris!! Veggie Tales is going to be calling to offer you a job...then Add is going to think you are even MORE awesome! lol!

Those are too cute! I bet you could get a bunch of adults to come over just to make veggie tales critters. :-) Looks like so much fun!

Very creative! I'm going to have to come back to this in November when both my girls add another year.

Very cute Cris!
You are a great mommy to put all the time and love into making it an extra special birthday for Add :)

Very cute! I think I love veggie tales more than my kids! lol. I love that they will be both cupcake toppers and party favors~

I LOVE THEM!!! My kids are HUGE VeggieTale fans! You have done a spectacular job! Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from Mingle Monday!

Those are too cool! I missed the earlier post. Addie is going to flip. Probably not even care about her presents when she sees the cake.
