This years theme? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
It was quite the birthday adventure this year. Our outdoor pumpkin patch
party got cancelled due to rain and we were left scrambling trying to figure out
another option. We opted to have the party at home, and it turned out great, but
man, talk about stress!
We made the cake ourselves, again, and also decorated a plain cookie cake to look like a pizza.
Kid4 has said that her favorite part of her birthday is getting to make her own cake, so we must! It isn't perfect by any means but Kid4 loved it so that's what matters!
We also bought a plain cookie cake, from Target (my fave), and decorated it to look like a pizza!
We made homemade buttercream icing for the sauce which turned out pink instead of red, oops!
Grated white chocolate was the "cheese" and cut out "pepperoni" out of fruit strips.
But the best part was that it tasted GREAT!
We used Kid3's TMNT toys as decorations on the island and green balloons too.
Our goody boxes were 8" pizza boxes that I found on ebay. I needed 12 and it was a pack of 50,
so next years party will be a pizza party too? Lol.
Last, but definitely not least, we ordered AMAZING cookies that we put into each
goody box. They were *almost* too pretty to eat.
|This is me holding one of the cookies. Isn't the baker an artist?|
The completed pizza box goody boxes looked like this...
and I kind of love how they turned out!
