Yet another party!
My son wanted a monster party this year, but he’s only 4, so they had to be “silly monsters.” I didn’t want a bunch of little kids to be scared of the cakes, after all.
So here is the second tiered cake I ever made!
And for those of you who notice details– NO, I did not leave the letters crooked.
I hadn’t attached the letters yet.
OK, then I made a big silly monster (he was about a foot tall, and the board he’s on was 20″ x 12″):
Seriously, I thought my hand was going to fall off while piping the frosting.
So much craziness, but he turned out like I pictured him. Except I hadn’t pictured me sitting there for hours working on it!
After an hour, I was cursing myself for deciding to make an extra cake.
After 2 hours, I was ready to smash him.
But anyway, I don’t want to bore you with the details of my looooong cake-decorating session.
Before I go, here is the piñata my husband made:
Honestly, I told him to get a box, draw a monster face on it, and call it a day.
But nooooo… he insisted on arms, legs… the works. (I think he has some kind of piñata-making rivalry going on with one of his friends).
Believe me, it was complicated to make, and he reinforced it to allow all the kids to get 2 turns– and even some parents.
OK, there you have it– until Part 2… the rest of the dessert table!
See you then!
