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!

I'm glad you like the cake pan, it looks awesome.

I have a friend who does the same thing and throws birthday parties in the garage, it seems to work out real well.

How exciting to see that the doll you contributed to got published in a magazine.
