When I asked him what he wanted on his cake of course it was Cat in the Hat. However (are you paying attention PBS?) no one actually sells toys or cake sets for this cartoon. My husband and I decided to forge ahead and make one anyway. I baked and iced the cake and he sketched out the cutouts for the Cat, Nick, Sally & Fish on card stock. Then I laminated them using using a hot iron and photo sleeves.
The cake before the little man and his cousins totally destroyed it.
He came downstairs, saw the cake, gasped and yelled "MAMA I NEED A FORK!!!"
Sally and Nick.
Balloons and streamers. It was awesome.
The weather was wonderful and we spend the day surrounded by friends and family. We set up a canopy in the back yard and put our old tent up in the corner of the garden for the kids to play in. They were in and out of the house the whole time and had a ton of fun.
This guy was on a sugar high for about three days.
