The Cake

Well originally the cake was supposed to look like this.
But our local baker who once made this for us
said that he couldn't do the carnival cake on the photo. I thought that the monkey cake above is more elaborate than the carnival, don't you think? So I told him to just give me the colors I wanted with no decorations and all. We then bought yo gabba gabba decors so I can put them on cupcakes.
When the cake came, the colors were not what we talked about and the yo gabba gabba were on the cake! I didn't know how to turn the cake into something carnival-esque so I just tried to copy the decors we had at the party onto the cake.
Our decors
the cake
When we got them there were just the yo gabba gabba characters. I've added the balloons, the animals,the bunting and the carnival banner. I think it resembled the decors of our party pretty well. The cake was a big hit, specially to the birthday boy! And the flavor which is chocolate with real bananas and custard filling was just divine!
The cake is huge too! You can see the scale of it here, next to the birthday boy.
But we gave him a cupcake to blow. And he didn't really mind.
He loved the cake so much. Everytime we move the cake to another spot, he would come to me and ask where it was. So cute.
We had a great time! I hope everyone else did too. When we were in bed, my son kept jumping up and down and shouting "Party! Party! Party!" the new word he learned that day and probably his most favorite.
We love him!

Aw, these blowing-out-the-candle photos are just so, so adorable and perfect. You're gonna be so happy about those when he's older!

Thanks so much! I'm so glad I was able to capture these moments on camera! I know, I'd be looking back at these, probably on his wedding day!
