I suddenly feel totally inadequate. Kidding, these pics couldn’t make anyone anything but happy. We’re having a family birthday party tomorrow for my two girls, and I am VERY jealous of the cake idea. It’s gorgeous. What a great way to take advantage of all the beautiful easter-colored candies out there right now! Thanks for sharing. noelleodesigns March 26, 2012 at 4:10 pm Reply Oh stop- that silly cake is a bit lopsided if you look close and definitely nowhere near professional. I just enjoy the challenge every year of leaving it up to the kids- I’ll try and make any cake they can dream up. This year the request from my 12 year old was simply a tiered cake… like a wedding cake. And this is what she ended up with! I feel grateful she didn’t ask for a high heel shoe or a exact replica of the Hunger Games cornucopia… Lara Johnson March 26, 2012 at 10:53 pm Reply Well, I think the cake is gorgeous. I had to do a Pokemon cake once. My daughter picked one I’d never even heard of, so she dug out a card from her Pokemon deck. I iced the cake white and hand painted the Pokemon on it. I thought it could have used a few more tries, but she was thrilled so it was all good. As long as they like it, I’m happy.

It actually stays on display all year long because I love it so much. Here is a link to the artist, Jennifer Reed- http://3reeddotters.blogspot.com/- she’s fantastically creative! Sewthegirl March 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm Reply Love these! Especially the banner. My son’s birthday is this week and I’m planning to make a pennant banner, which I wanted to do last year but ran out of time. This post reminded me I had better get on it or I’ll blow it again! noelleodesigns March 26, 2012 at 4:01 pm Reply The great thing about the party banner is that you can pull it out for just about every occasion, you might find yourself making more than one. 🙂 harlisticpromise March 26, 2012 at 4:40 pm Reply lluuuvvvv this! Sarah Adie March 26, 2012 at 7:23 pm Reply That crown’s amazing! Jennifer March 30, 2012 at 4:44 am Reply wow, i totally need to echo the girls above — the cake is awesome! was it hard to make? i’m now thinking about how to turn it into a little boy’s cake for my son’s birthday! 🙂 and thanks for stopping by and liking my post! 🙂 Jen, chirpy threads noelleodesigns March 30, 2012 at 5:26 pm Reply Not hard to make, just 3 cakes stacked, I put toothpicks in here and there to keep it from leaning, I though about using popsicle sticks (safer, should a partygoer stumble into one while shoveling in a spoonful) but I couldn’t find any last minute. The M&M’s just add a little texture and hide imperfections. Just walk down the candy aisle and think ‘boy’ and you’ll come up with something. Jennifer March 30, 2012 at 5:45 pm Reply Awesome! Thanks for all the tips! Time to go shopping now. I hope mine turns out as lovely as yours did! 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel Δ This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
