day of party

The "infamous" 6 candle on my 7 yr old's cake.......can't believe I did that and noone said anything!

I always do two cakes for our parties-one for the kids and then one that has less sugar for the adults.I used a devil food's box cake mix and made the frosting with cream cheese,powdered sugar,cocoa powder and splenda.YUM.

Box mix strawberry cake with ready-made frosting.I used a cookie cutter and blue fondant to make the bones.It was my first time working with fondant so I was afraid it wouldn't work but it turned out easier than I expected.I can't wait to experiment with fondant again.OOOOH all the cakes I can create using fondant! Zach saw it a few mins ago and loved it and is begging to cut into it-trying to hold him off till party time though.
