Last week was L’s 4th birthday! I did not throw an elaborate party, not as much energy this year but we still had a grand time. Instead, I did try to be a little over the top with the cake and I thought I’d share it with you. I actually got this fun and fabulous idea from the ever clever Tracy Porter (and by the way her blog is BACK! Love her!). Her cake looked a million times better than mine but my cake generated enough oohs and ahhs from the kids (especially the boys, girls if they are anything like me seem to be more of the chocolate type).
Basically, you can just buy a cake at the store (or 2 like above) and go crazy with candy decorations. The more unique the candy the better the cake. Unfortunately, where I live there is no old fashioned candy shop. But for the kids, I do believe this was Willy Wonka enough!
