Next came cake and a Happy Birthday Song to my birthday boy.
He was so sweet, and proud. He beamed while they sang to him.
This was the culmination of all our birthday party planning.
It was the very moment he dreamed about for months as he counted down the days to the event...all his friends circled around him, singing just to him.
I made a Construction Zone cake, which I think turned out super cute.
It was a 2 tiered chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I took a chunk out of the top layer to look like it had been dug out. Then covered the whole thing with crushed chocolate graham crackers to look like dirt. We used coconut-covered chocolate marshmallows to look like boulders, and placed some mini Tonka equipment around to look like a work zone. I even put some "dirt" in the back of the dump truck and the bucket of the excavator for good measure.
My mom made some amazing chocolate cupcakes too. Her little bakery, All Mixed Up is really taking off! It's probably because they are the best cupcakes EVER. Just ask anyone. Yummmmy. :)
I'm telling you what, turning 5 is pretty awesome. Especially when you get to spend it with loads of good friends. I think the day lived up to all my birthday boy's expectations, and then some!
Whew, this Mommy is exhausted. :)
