Happy 8th Birthday Callum

I can't believe my youngest turned 8 this weekend!  To celebrate, he decided that he wanted a Club Penguin themed birthday party this year.  So I channeled my inner Martha and came up with this:

It took me FOREVER!  I'm not kidding.  I've never covered a cake in fondant before, and I still don't get how they get it perfectly smooth without any creases.  I certainly won't be going into the cake making business anytime soon.  But Callum loved it, and that's what counts.

I also made some Puffle cookies.

Here's the table looking all nice and tidy before the kiddies descended and rifled through their bags, messed up the tablescape and proceeded to grab the fondant figures off the cake!

I got another year out of the number 8 candle.  Unfortunately it's time to retire it.

It seems that the only time it rains in Utah in the summer is actually on the day we throw Callum's birthday party!  Can be quite tricky when you're hosting a swim party.  

See I told you there were lots of grabby hands.  All that work to be gobbled up in two seconds.  Of course I had to take a bunch of photos.

Ahh, but there's a surprise in the cake.

Yep, Martha, I tell you.  Rainbow cake at its finest.  I must say, it did look rather cool.

Callum loved it!

Look even the plate matches.

Ahh, Callum holding Gary The Gadget Guy, his favorite Club Penguin Character.  And that was the last we saw of him!  Gobble.
