Birthday Pic's, Blog Winners and Art Dolls!

~ A special thanks to Jessica of Zakka Life for giving me the heads up
on this fantastic cake pan
that I got from Williams Sanoma!

The next time we have a "smaller" party, I plan to use the recipe that came with pan!
For Dyllan' party we had 19 kids and almost 30 adults! Quite alot of baking! So I went with easy Betty Crocker in a box!



~ I'm glad I took photographs of the cake when I finished it the night before as the humidity made the peppermint wheels dissolve over night! The middle cake was for the adults, meant to be a hill side complete with circus animal cookies!


~ Dyllan stayed up late helping me decorate, he would not have it any other way! I was hoping by staying up late that he would (let us) sleep in, but he was up at 6:30am sharp!. Go figure.



~ I'm really in LOVE with this cake pan and am already dreaming up something spooky for Halloween!



~ Since we live in a cul de sac, we hosted the party in the garage. I bought a roll of green, (Dyllan's Favorite Color) plastic table cloth and used it to cover our shelves and less than pretty garage items. I also hung streamers, Diego themed stuff and balloons everywhere!



The kids had party hats and noisemakers. I also made cool treat bags filled with all of Dyllan's favorites; airplane, ring pops, dip-in-stick, candy buttons, toy race car, games ans more!



My friend Teresa lent us her bounce house. The kids had a blast!



~ Here I am lighting the 4 candles on Dyllan's cake. You can see the peppermint wheels had started to dissolve. Still yummy though! Also since we had so many kids/people, I did not have anything big enough to hold the train cakes and hill side. So I took the lid off of Dyllan's plastic toy storage tote and wrapped it in some green plastic tablecloth. Taped it to the undersides. It worked fine!



~ This was our first Party where we could have a pinata! So fun!





~ All you could here were the
kids exclaiming..Candy! Candy! Candy!
