In 4 days, my not-so-little boy turns 4. We are planning a big birthday BBQ for him with all our friends and neighbours whom we will soon be leaving behind. Hopefully this birthday weekend will be more of a celebration than a reminder of everything I’m leaving in a few weeks.
We are planning to have a Monster’s University Theme – with a Monster’s cake, decorations, balloons… everything. I know he would have preferred a Minion theme, because that’s what he’s really into right now, but I was very hard pressed to find minion decorations and I am just not talented enough to bake a minion cake!
With 4 days to the real birthday, and 3 days until the party, I decided it was time to get started on the prep work. This morning I mixed up two batched of chocolate fudge batter to make 4-layers for the cake and 24 mini-cupcakes for school and daycare. That’s a lot of cake! Now I just have to get off my lazy bum and package them up properly for the freezer!
More party updates to come!
