Wow, I’m really behind with these posts. It’s been a crazy couple of months… birthday parties, trip to Disney, out-of-town guests, Easter, tornadoes, road trips, 2 graduations, a cruise… well, you get the idea.
Basically, the usual.
OK, let’s start with my son’s Outer Space party.
I decided to make easy cakes this time:
As easy as it seems, it took a ridiculously long time.
Luckily, the Happy Birthday cake was a lot easier.
Instead of making it all in fondant, I used buttercream frosting, with fondant decorations:
Then my 5-year-old wanted me to make little chocolate astronauts (I bought a mold), but I thought they looked funny.
I made them for him.
Then I hid them, hoping he’d forget.
But of course, he didn’t forget.
I even distracted him with a bunch of other desserts.
He still asked for them.
I acted like I didn’t know what he was talking about.
He described them.
I gave up.
I took them out of the hiding place and set them out with a quick planet cake I whipped up:
Yeah, I don’t even want to talk about it. Lol.
But he was happy with it, so that’s all that matters. Right???
OK, as long as you know that I didn’t approve of the cake… Moving right along…
Check out the rocket piñata my husband made (it was over 3 feet long)!
And let’s end with the cheese cut out in star shapes. I was really excited about these, for some reason:
See you for Part 2!
