NOT JUST YOUR ORDINARY BIRTHDAY CAKE

Today, my oldest son turned 3. We didn't really have a whole lot planned because he had been sick, but I knew I would definitely be making him a cake... chocolate on chocolate of course. Not sure if that's his favorite, but it's mine.

You might remember this cake stand from earlier posts here and here...
so I wanted to use it for Luke's cake, but it's just a little too girly as is. So I wrapped it in Reynolds Wrap...
definitely not as girly, but pretty boring, so I got out my Cricut machine and cut a Birthday Hat border.

I think that jazzed it up just enough.
Then came the cake... simple chocolate cake with chocolate icing, but I didn't want it to be that simple, so I added M&Ms (Luke's favorite).
I like how the "M"s look like "3"s... well sort of. Come on people, use your imagination.


I think my Now 3yr. old liked it well enough!!!
