Aaron's 7th Birthday

Aaron turned 7 on Tuesday.
He asked for a cake with the little yellow guys from Despicable Me. After searching online, I got a few ideas (and found they are called Minions). This is the first cake I've done with fondant. I'm not sure I love the taste, but it was fun to try something new.
I also saw this idea for cute little Twinkie Minions. They were a hit with the kids.
A couple of months ago, Benjamin slobbered on Aaron's Nintendo DS. Aaron tried to clean it under the faucet. It came clean, but needless to say, it was ruined. Apparently, we never had the "water ruins electronics" talk. Anyway, he was devastated. I knew then that's what I would get him for his Birthday. As soon as he opened it, he left the party to reunite with his dearly missed friend toy. Grandma and Grandpa Marchant also spoiled him with clothes, games, and an activity bag for our trip to Hawaii. It was a full house, but we are glad our family came to help us celebrate. We love you, Aaron!

That cake is great - you're a fondant pro! I also love the twinkies. I don't like the taste of fondant either, but it's so fun to decorate with! Happy Birthday to Aaron!

There are so many new designs coming up for the birthday cakes. I am stunned to see them all. I really liked this minion cake a lot. I went to a party last week, it was in a very big venue NYC, there they had a huge cake which was actually looking like a bridal dress, but in real it was all edible.
