We live in a great neighborhood and for a small fee/deposit, we can rent out the pavilion for birthday parties. That makes life so easy for us since there are three within a month of each other. Josiah's up first on the birthday train. He requested a knight cake but then I found a cool pin on a castle cake. I asked him if I could surprise him and he agreed.
Here is how it turned out. The only thing I have to say is you need A LOT of chocolate icing to glue things together and such. I layered it three layers. It was also a TON of chocolate which didn't bother me a bit but may have been a bit too rich for the kids.
Enjoying pizza and friends!
He is such a cool kid.
Josiah loved the cake but wanted it to look a bit more realistic so they brought knights to the party and decorated it. I thought they did a great job with it.
Ge & Granddaddy didn't get to come to the actual party so they came a bit earlier and created their own party. Josiah didn't mind (actually they love when grandparents have to come at a different time than their party...it makes it feel like it lasts longer)!
