Happy Birthday!

Today is Adam's 30th birthday! I have been teasing him that he is my old man now since I won't be 30 until November. I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, whether that was a party, going out, presents, special cooked dinner, and he said that he just wanted to stay home with his family. Now I don't know about you, but I want a party (hint, hint Adam ;-). What I did do was put together a huge crossword puzzle with the help of his family and friends for him. They sent me the clues and answers and I put it all together. I will be posting the answers to that puzzle for some of our friends that live far away later on in the week. But for today we got him a water bottle from Walgreens, a bag of nice loose leaf tea, and a pumpkin pie. He asked for the pumpkin pie and he wanted it from a bakery. Now at first I felt insulted, mainly because he didn't want me to make the pie, and then I was relieved. I wanted to make him a fun cool cake instead. By the way, he is determined to eat the entire pie himself throughout the day. Stay tuned for how that goes!

I found this really neat cake online and just knew that I had to make that for him! When we started dating we were too poor to actually go anywhere (gee, somethings never change!), and we would go to the arcade and mini golf. He LOVED Ms. Pac-man and would play that all day. It has kinda become a joke in our house that I think he loves her more than me. So when I saw a Pac-man cake I had to try it. Now keep in mind that I have not taken any cake decorating classes nor have I really done any piping at all.

Here it is! The ghosts, cherries, and Ms. Pac-Man are all rolled out Starburst or Jolly Rancher chewy candies. The dots are peanut m&m's and skittles!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I really feel that with my knowledge it is darn good!
