I went to the special cake place to check out icing markers (I'm not even sure if that is what they are called- but I needed something and I assumed they would have it) and I found this. Spiderman specific icing colors. Leaving nothing to chance- I jumped on it. And since the red and the black frosting only needed a TOOTHPICK dipped into the color and mixed with my double batch of icing- we are good to go on the spiderman color set for many years to come.
But his actual real live birthday cake on his actual birthday?????? A lego monster truck cake. I only divulge that here because he can't read and doesn't follow my blog anyway. It's a surprise. Crushed up oreos for dirt, mountains for the truck to climb, crushed rock candy rocky cliffy things. I envision total and complete awesomeness. We'll see what actually happens. Ally is constructing the monster truck lego car as I type. Then all we have to do is hide it until the big reveal.
The big reveal being when I try and convince Sam that that strange looking cake covered in crystalized sugar is really a cool monster truck lego cake.
And then he'll ask for an ice cream cake from DQ next year.
You see fuzzy kid. I see all those stinkin' orbeez on the floor in the background.
This toy plays the Marvel Super Hero theme song. Really loud. Really really loud.
