Dude #2 turned 10 and he loves the Despicable Me movies so a theme for his party was soon found.
I made sweet Minion birthday cakes, angry minion cupcakes, decorated cookies with edible minion prints and of course the M&M’s and skittles were sorted in matching colors.
When boys get to the teenager age, there comes a time when kiddie parties are no longer appreciated. Good thing I can still go all out on the big grown up party …. Dude #1 loves the Simpsons so that was his theme for his 12th birthday bash.
We served cakepops brownies, oreo’s, choc chip cookies, brownies, mini donuts, M&M’s, hamburger candy, red licorice.
As you can see the top cake (I alway smake 2 layers) was donutshaped and that posed for some decorating challenges with the marzipan. But I rocked the bottom layer though !
Dude #1 turned 10 and his theme was baseball since he plays it and loves the game.
We forgot to take pictures of the themed table but we do have individual pics of the treats, cake and decorations.

Star Wars Cupcakes for school treats
Chocolate & vanilla cupcakes, white chocolate spread and fondant circles.
The star wars cake, a story in itself …. I had everything planned how to, was on time with everything except the ordering of the cakesupplies. The fondant came way to late so I had to improvise. My friend was able to supply me with marzipan (yuck and so no fun to work with when you’re used to fondant) for the top part of the cake. And I made swiss merengue buttercream for the bottom cake, and omg this was so much easier and so delicious. Never making other buttercream again ! The top cake has vanilla merengue buttercream & cherry jam the bottom cake has chocolate mousse and strawberry jam.
