Candyland Cake

As I mentioned yesterday, we have 2 summer birthdays.  Well, the second one is my daughter Nicole’s B-day. 


She turned 9 this year.

She also happens to be in love with anything made of SUGAR.  She LOVES candy, licorice, suckers, marshmallows, and anything and everything that is sweet!  But her absolute favorite thing is GUM.  I really think she is a relative of Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  She LOVES gum and can’t get enough of it.

So this year I thought it would only be fitting to make her birthday cake full of her favorite things—LOTS OF CANDY.  So I decided to make a CANDYLAND CAKE.

My friend dropped by and took a picture of me in my kitchen of chaos!  (Apparently I am a messy baker!)


But all my messy kitchen was worth it as this is what I came up with:





I think it turned out great--and she LOVED it!



It was a very SWEET birthday for a very SWEET little girl!

Assemble the Minions!

I have a so many posts to do to catch up with all the projects and things we have been doing over the summer.  It has been a very busy few months!

First off—We had a couple birthdays over the summer!  We have 2 birthdays within 2 weeks of each other.  Our first summer birthday is for this little guy:


He turned 5 this year.

His birthday was at a super busy time for our family.  So this year I needed to go SIMPLE. 

We decided to have take him and a few friends to our local Jump Around Fun Zone.  So I needed a cake that could transported easily and eaten without a whole lot of hassle. 

I had seen THIS idea a while back and new it would be perfect for my little man’s special day.

So I made these little guys using twinkies, black gel frosting, smarties for the eyes, and brown sprinkles for the hair.



And these little guys transported great in a little 9x13.


And they made this birthday boy very happy!


(And next time Mom will remember to turn the cake around before taking a picture!)
