So the birthday happened (last Thursday) and I will get to the actual day pictures of the fun (hot) day..but first: to continue the preperations…
Party countdown: 4 days ago (post delayed because cake wasn’t actually completed until day of)
Step 1: decorations
Step 2: invitations
Step 3: cake (here)
Step 4: party (to come)
For the cake – I used Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic White Cake. I bought 2 boxes.
On the first round (a few weeks away from the party) I made the first box…and divided it into 3 bowls, added food coloring to make pretty layers. Then poured each into their own cake pan..
can’t you feel the excitement ;)
The second round (which involved another box of cake mix and 3 layers but a much more hectic day so no photos) were made a week or so later and added to the freezer with the rest of their layer friends.
I intended to ice around the cake, but just couldn’t bring myself to do it after I saw how stinking cute and fun the cake looked “naked”.
I didn’t realize the plates matched the cake until someone pointed it out (I’m real observant) so I snapped a picture
More to come on the party!
