There were only 9 of us, 5 of which actually eat cake and other sweets, so there was no need for plates upon plates of goodies. The party was held after dinner, so no need for appetizers or beverages on the table. Like I said this was a small party and the only thing we needed was the birthday cake, although some blue cake pops managed to make their way onto the table.
This is my sad sorry attempt at creating an owl cake, although Tyler seemed to enjoy it quite a lot.
It had 5 layers of homemade chocolate cake & buttercream frosting. SO delicious, not so attractive and could have fed about 20 more people. We will be eating cake for a while!
Every birthday cake needs candles, so this bird got a flaming mohawk!
After creating this display it reminded me of making dioramas in Elementary school. I always loved creating scenes within shoe boxes to tell a story. Its fun to do the same thing only on a much larger scale as an adult! YEAH for letting my inner child out!!
Thanks for stopping in!
