I like to mash slightly ripe bananas ans mix with OJ. Then freeze in small portions.  It's grat frozen, if youlet it thaw it;'s kind like a mousse.

Can you make a little pin cushoin on the top?  then add sewing supplies ot them?

or turn them into mini first aid kits?  (bandaids, alchol swabs, safty pin, etc)

Thank you for all your suggestions... I  kinda ended up just doing what i wanted to do.  lol

He really didn't want white frosting wanted chocolate, so I tried going green with chocolate frosting that didn't work at all.

I made a few with chcolate frosting & I minced up green licorice whips & mixed with green sprinkles for grass... then topped with half a gummy earth worm.  I will say again the Gummy Earth Worams are gross, I think they were grape flavored? I licked the package one came in, couldn't bring myself to taste the actual candy.

the rest I frosted with chocolte then rolled in oreo crumbs then put a worm on top. I want to make again using coconut as grass, but he is allergic to coconut so I didn't do that this time.

I did other other cup cakes for party that I made a white cake mix with mixed berry sparkling water, added purple (red + blue) food coloring to batter. Frosted with white frosting & used gum drops & M & M's to make flowers. Also added  M&M lady bugs & bees like on the sunflower cupcakes, the girls & mom's at party loved them!!   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240213.0

also did some red, white & blue layered batter cupcakes. They were cute, my white layer puffed up so they all had a white bloch in the center  lol  but when cut in half, or with a bite or two taken out of them they looked cute. I did just a dllop of frosting on the dop with a few red, white & blue star sprinkles.

Well he wants chocolate cup cakes with chocolate frosting with something to look like grass... we are adding gummy earth worms to the top,,,,ugh  not crazy colored gummy worms  but brownish reddish gummy Earth Worms  yumm.

I was gonna do devils food cake  chocolate frostinhg then sprinkle with crushed oreos to look like dirt... no go,  he dosen't like oreos.   What??!!  kid dosen't like oreos??
So I said  what abt coconut tinted green for grass??  nope  he is allergic to coconut...

!! I never even thought to use thwe flavored cream cheese....  I've always just mixed stuff into the cream cheese.

Lemon & Blueberry sounds really good!! 

I am making one to take to a picnic tomorrow, decorating with blueberrys & raspberries to look like a flag. =)

I don't sew, so this is all just opinon, no advice.
Your dress is gorgous. Keep sewing & maybe in 40 or so years when you are ready to let her get married she can use your corset as part of her dress.  =)

The dress you made you lil one is beautiful!!  She is a doll.  I think the bow looks bwetter in the back, & it she is going to wear it durring the reception it would prob be easier for her with it in the back. Also I think it looks full enough with out extra layers. You did a great job!!  =)
