I know I haven’t blogged much lately, but that’s because April is a crazy, crazy month. We’ve done everything from vacation, run a 5K race, celebrate Easter and, of course, throw an awesome birthday party for our super awesome daughter.
The “Around the World” Party was quite the undertaking, but very, very fun. My husband and I took our daughter and 9 of her friends on a trip around the world (via our airplane garage). Starting first in Japan, then on to India, Italy and finally Fiji. With the last stop in Fiji, we had to have a Tiki Hut cake, right? And this is it!! Fully edible, including chocolate seashells and seahorses as well as pretzel palm trees and licorice thatching. Even the tiki hut itself was edible!
Very fun party and very fun cake. Just one trick, should you ever decide to make a tiki hut cake for yourself. Make sure you mold the hut from a pound cake. Regular cake will fall right apart. Works perfect and tastes WONDERFUL! Everyone loves pound cake!
Happy 9th Birthday, PJ. And thanks for helping with the Tiki hut. You did a great job on the pretzel walls. Mommy loves you and is so very proud. I couldn’t ask for a smarter, funnier, more beautiful daughter. Mwah!
