Over at Life As Mom she is having a birthday cake round up (so we can all get ideas from one another - what a great idea! - go check it out because there are some really cool cakes there).
I am going to post mine again, so if you have already seen these, please forgive me.
I'm not very creative, but as long as my kids are happy - that's all that matters. (I do have fun in the process too.)
Champ didn't know what kind of cake he wanted, but he is really into Pokemon, so I thought of a Pokeball cake. (It has to be pretty easy, I'm not that talented.)
Anthony wanted a Star Wars cake and he wanted it black. I didn't want to do a whole cake in black so I trimmed it in black. Again, I'm not that creative so I used plastic Star Wars figures purchased from the store (washed them and set them on top of the cake). He loved it (he got to keep and play with the toys after we cut the cake). They should make cake toppers more durable, not that flimsy easy to break plastic, (to serve double duty - cake topper and toy...Hey!! Cake topper makers, are you listening?).
