Lets cut the preamble.
I made this cake okay.
And... I am darn proud of it. Just sayin.
When one make's a cake one never really knows how it exactly it will turn out so to speak. Well I should say when I make a cake. I'm no professional.
But anyway I had to get this particular cake together because I decided to have a Birthday bash for Mr. 13 year old.
This guy. You know him right?
Loves to read.
Rarely ever seen without his skateboard. Yeah him.
He needed a 13th birthday celebration. I was sure of it.
So as I ever so slightly recuperated from my holiday exhaustion I started rolling in the direction of making and creating a fun night for him and his buddies.
We started with the said cake above.
I rolled out fondant. Cut out shapes and assembled it the best that I could.
Polka dots were in order. Dont ask me why okay?
I then put this guy together. He is the character from his favorite skate company.
Like totally. So he had to go on the cake.
Before I knew it I had this.
And my guy was doing this. Which made my whole month. Totally!
Then we needed a few birthday favors for the guests. So we quickly whipped out our handy dandy Yudu .
And made these. I thought they turned out pretty cool but as a mom I always worry about being too cheesy. But I think they were enjoyed.
Next up was the wax. Cause every boarder needs wax right. I think so.
Skateboard wax. Bought a big block.
Melted it down. Added color.
Poured it into molds.
Before we knew it we also had wax. MAC wax to be exact.
Then it was time to Par-tay!!
We all gathered.
We got some big Air. Well big for us at this time in our lives.
We got tricky.
We got tricky again.
We got funny.
We got to show off our shirts.
We got sugared up.
Got some of the best gifts a guy could ask for. And then got grateful.
Then we got together for a group pic. Cause I'm that kind of Mom. I know. Cheesy.
Then we skated the rest of the night away and a fun time was had by all.
We also had a sleepover with all the dudes. But that's another story for another time.
But I will tell you this. I barely survived. But survive I did. And big fun was had. So it was well worth it.
The 13th Birthday Bash. A success I believe.
Grateful for good friends, fun times and the chance to put them all together.
Over and out.
