Garfield Cake!

Fuzz turns 8 tomorrow. In the past, we held off celebrating until after school began, but this year Fuzz insisted on having her party the real day of her birthday, and she knew what she wanted – a home party with a magician. She also wanted the theme to be “Garfield” so it’s a double themed birthday of Garfield and Magic. This meant we had to make goodie bags and invitations ourselves.

The cake was a different story. I wish I could say I made it, but credit goes to Christina Hernandez at Sentelli’s. I called her and said I wanted a “Garfield and Magic” themed cake and this is what we got. So honestly, I have no mom-guilt about not making the birthday cake this year. Not one bit. I’ll let you know how it tastes tomorrow.

    Wow, what a fun party and awesome cake. When my little sister (the youngest) was about 5 (I’m 9 years older), my mom didn’t want to do birthday parties anymore, so my friends and I put on a “magic show” for my sister’s birthday. Everyone loved our cheesy magic. What a really fun idea Fuzz had for her birthday. Hope it’s great!

    My daughter’s 5th birthday is Sunday, and for her party this past week I made the Barbie with the big cake skirt. I can certainly hope for a remission of mom-guilt in later years, as this cake kept me up at night before it was done. I had nightmares of dropping it after all the work. It was a big hit though. Whew!
