Happy birthday to my Isaac! Genna made him his breakfast of choice this morning. She made him cereal, yogurt, and a waffle with powdered sugar. He turned 5 today and had his birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese.
So, Isaac picked superhero cupcakes. I found these adorable cupcakes and bought everything I needed long in advance. Then a week ago, Isaac tells a friend of mine that he doesn't really like cake. He's getting an ice cream cake. Oh? So I decided to still make the cupcakes, but to also order a Carvel cake since I recently tried one of their cakes and thought it was amazing. Then there's that whole 39 week pregnant thing. Genna was quite shocked that I ordered a cake. "Have you ever done that before, Mommy?" she asked me. I, in fact, have never ordered a cake before.
|I made the toppers using Candy Melts, zip lock baggies, and wax paper.|
|I found this idea on Pinterest for superhero pop favors. Easy and quite the hit! I made some Tootsie Roll Pops and some Blow Pops because Isaac's 5 year old privilege is gum chewing.|
|The Carvel cake was delicious and Isaac loved it!|
Isaac got almost all superhero gifts. He said the best part of the party was playing games. For dinner we went to Uncle Julio's since they had a free desert for the birthday boy and they give the kids tortilla dough to play with while we wait on our food.
