June turns 5 next week – where did the time go??? After the fish cake of 2013 (see below), this year she asked for an ocean party. Notice I’m not using the word “theme.” Because I’ve seen the themed parties online. And those people are on crack. Our wedding wasn’t as nice as the parties people are throwing for kids nowadays. Personally I think kids could give a rip about the tiny details and I prefer to set my offspring’s expectations low. 🙂
That said, I do put some effort into food and decorations. (Yes, I’m that lunatic making homemade hummus of her kid’s party). Last year I made this ala Martha.
Don’t be fooled by his cuteness….this cake nearly killed me. Like Wesley in The Princess Bride. I just sucked one year of your life away. The ham-fisted cook in me would have been lost without help from my patient and lovely cousin. Crumb coat sounded like something stuck to my shirt.
