Big Birthday Bash

Little Man's Birthday was last weekend, and we had a wonderful party with friends and family. I decided to go with the theme of dump trucks. I think everyone had a great time, and it is definitely a birthday that he will not forget. We had pin little man in the dump truck instead of pin the tail on the donkey. Daddy drew the truck, and I printed out pictures of the little man.
We then had a pinata which was great fun.
After the games, came the cake. I am rather proud of my cake. I used store bought cake mixes, and shaped them into a dump truck. I then covered them with fondant, and made the sides of the truck with candy melts. The dirt was smushed oreos. The tires were rice krispy pucks covered in fondant. I think little man enjoyed it.
After cake was presents, but there weren't any pictures that didn't have other children in them. So, I didn't want to post those without permission from parents. Overall, I think it was a great party.

Stephanie, I saw your link-up over at Yesterday on Tuesday and I had to come by to see the cake closer up. Looks like a wonderfully creative party, and you did an excellent job with the cake!
