snake birthday cake

I know.  Buying a cake has it’s benefits…like saving time.  (and sanity)

But making a birthday cake?  With your kid?  Yeah it’s a pain. Yeah it’s a mess.  But it does have benefits too:

2) You kid will be the one to tell guests, “You can look at my cake….just don’t touch it!!!

3) Your kid (and you – exhausted and ready for a cocktail and a cab to take you….anywhere) will stand proud of what he/she has done.

I try and ask my kids what cake they want for their birthday or any celebration….and whatever they say, “Dirt cake!” or “Batman cake!” or “Cake that explodes,” I’ll search the internet till I find something or convince them to make “this other great thing I found.”

The lady who made this Snake Birthday Cake for her six year old son, went a step further and shoved the Barbie Birthday Cake Doll into the mouth of the snake!

It’s a great cake, fun and exciting for boys and very fun for the kids!
