Tonsil Bear

It’s the 4 year anniversary of starting this blog, so I thought I’d share one of my first (and fave- and creepiest!) posts! ENJOY ;)

Yup… Tonsil bear.

So, my best buddy’s daughter is getting her tonsils removed tomorrow. I thought to myself, “I will make her a care package.” And then my imagination took a wrong turn, as usual.

Meet Thomas:

Thomas is a lovely bear I got from my enormous re-gift pile the expensive store down the road. He went through a journey that most stuffies wont ever have to go through…

Surgery.

And I aint talkin’ Botox. I’m talkin’ total reconstructive mouth surgery. And a tonsillectomy while I’m at it.

(Thanks for the great photo, Jody!)

Look at these precious morsels! (it took 5 tries for me to spell ‘morsels’ properly, FYI.)

Since I am not a baker, I will only be offering a chocolate button tutorial here, BUT if you want some of the most AMAZING and impressive cakey tutorials, you must check out my pal Melissa’s stuff over at Buttercream Couture.

Now- back to the buttons!

I picked up a couple of button molds when I was on a cake-making adventure with Mrs. Buttercream Couture, and I couldn’t wait to put them to use! You can buy this…
