Happy Birthday Ethan!

Wow, what a beautiful weekend once again..I'm hoping that every special occasion that we get to be a part of has nice weather!
My godson Ethan is in LOVE with Bumblebee from what better way to celebrate his birthday than with a themed cake!

Since cupcakes are all the rage these days, we decided we'd go ahead and make a 6" cake and a bunch of cupcakes so that each guest could have something of their own.

Here's the cake all iced up ready for the fondant...

Then for the cupcakes, I thought I'd do yellow icing with black sprinkles..for that real bumble bee feel...

Oh and the cake was chocolate and the filling for both the cupcakes and cake was a chocolatey-hazelnut filling..yum!

We couldn't just leave the cupcakes without a special we melted down some yellow vanilla flavored candy disks into the shape of an autobot logo...

(ignore my flower patterned place mat hehe!) And the finished product looked like this:

They were a big hit and everyone loved that they got a little autobot all to themselves! Finally, the cake..which we decided to put a fondant picture of the animated version of turned out really well! All of the cupcakes surrounding the cake have yellow candy to spell out "happy birthday"..I really wanted them to be black but when I added the food coloring it seized up the candy..I think it would've worked better if I had used white chocolate but time was of the essence so yellow had to do!

It's always fun to put your twist on a themed birthday cake. Ethan's mom was super happy with the end result (she pretty much left it up to us!)..we've been doing Ethan's cake for the past couple years (our website shows the Spiderman cake and cupcakes from last year's birthday) and we look forward to many more themed birthdays!

Deliciously Yours,

Jzabela & Sara
