Kids Birthday Cakes

So tomorrow is the kid's family birthday. It's the one where we invite all the family and a few friends that live a distance away over to a big party in the backyard. We are keeping it very simple. Hot dogs, baked beans, layered salad, fruit, chips, guac, and punch. Nothing too fancy, they are 2 and 3. But this year I decided to make the cakes. I know what you are thinking, don't you have enough going on? Yes, and let's be clear, I'm crazy! But I picked themes for each kid that were going to be pretty easy. Plus once I chose the theme, I browsed the good old internet. I did find some really awesome ideas here on this web site. They are all homemade cakes, but I'm pretty sure non-professional people. Really cool! As you can tell, I stole some ideas!

So L is having a Lightening McQueen birthday, and D is having a cupcake theme. For the treat bags, I found sippy cups at the dollar store, a 5 pack for $1, and Cars theme frisbees, a 3 pack for $1. I then got Cars and cupcake stickers to decorate the cups, and wrote each kids name on them. Put them all together in a clear treat bag with some extra stickers, and there you go!

Aww I LOVE LOVE LOVE that cupcake cake - HOW did that get made? Zilla's b-day is coming up next month and he would totally dig that!!

It was actually a Wilton pan that I borrowed from a friend. It was super easy. You bake the bottom half and the top half separately and then frost them together.

I love the second one! I adore millions little sweety bits, and that cake could easily accommodate several hungry mouths!
