Jake and the Neverland Pirates Suckers

After throwing the Ultimate Sports Party a couple of weeks ago we had another birthday to celebrate.  My now 5-year-old has been wanting a Jake and the Neverland Pirates birthday for a long time.  We mostly celebrated with cousins at the park and then just had a friend over to play on his actual birthday so I made these Jake and the Neverland Pirates Suckers for the two of them. I had made some of these for Valentine’s Day when he brought Pirate Suckers to his class but this time we stuck just to the Jake and the Neverland Pirates theme.  Also, check out his pirate ship cake that I posted this week.

Pirate Ship Cake

Well after a week of a laptop crash, blog redesign and hosting transfer, I am back!  How do you like the new look?  I’m still working out some of the bugs but I am loving how things turned out. This past week was yet another birthday around here and this time we set sail with Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  I have made this simple pirate ship cake before for one of my older boys so we thought we’d try it again.  I’ve said it before and I will say it again and again, I am NOT a queen of making cakes.  I’ve made a few fun cakes but if I’m going to attempt it, it has to be easy.

Ultimate Sports Birthday Party

This past weekend we survived celebrated my son’s 7th birthday party with 14 of his friends.  He loves playing sports and even says he wants to be a professional basketball player when he grows up 😉 so we knew that a Sports Birthday Party was in order. As I showed you last week we made a M&M’s basketball cake for his actual birthday and then had his birthday party at the park on the weekend.  I think I finally got it right this year when i decided to have the party at the park.  It was PERFECT!  Plenty of room for all of the little guys to run around and get crazy without me stressing out about my house.  Why did it take me so long to think of that?  But with the games/activities we had planned we knew a sports birthday party needed to be somewhere with more room to run.

Sports Cupcakes

Last week I shared my son’s M&M’s basketball cake that we made for his 7th birthday.  Since his birthday fell during the week we did his sports party with friends this weekend and needed a little treat to give to them.  Of course we thought of sports cupcakes.  I will be sharing all of the fun we had at the party later this week.

Basketball DIY Cake Stand

This week I shared my son’s basketball birthday cake and promised to share how to make an easy DIY cake stand. I have a nice, glass cake stand that I normally use for our cakes but I had a specific look in mind.  After looking online for a plain metal cake stand and seeing that everything cost more than I wanted to pay, I decided to make one.  This was the easiest and most inexpensive project I have done in awhile and I got exactly the look I was wanting.

Yesterday we celebrated the 7th birthday of one of the coolest kids I know. When he grows up he wants to be a professional basketball player so naturally he would want a basketball cake for his birthday. […]

Farm Themed Birthday Party

Where did the year go?  We spent the weekend here planning for my baby’s first birthday party.  I wasn’t sure if I should be excited or extremely sad since I know this is the last 1st birthday party I will plan and my baby is growing up before my eyes. We chose a Farm Themed Birthday Party and I am so happy with how it turned out! Farm Themed Birthday Party I decided awhile ago on a farm party theme.  I had found so many cute things that I could use to make the day fun and even though I know he won’t remember any of it, my big boys will remember celebrating with him.  And of course, we have the cute pictures.
