The weather is finally warming up, so we can get out of the house and take some lovely walks. And you have no idea how much I am loving this. But a few weeks ago the weather was super crummy. And it will only get super crummy again. (April showers right?)
We needed fun. And this fun didn’t have to be healthy, but it had to be budget friendly.
Here is our budget friendly unbirthday celebration!
I let Lizzie and David pick out one cake mix each. Then I bought a large can of white frosting. (Yes, I could have made my own frosting, but this was easier).
Then, I let them each pick out one topping. Any topping they wanted, sky was the limit! Lizzie picked out chocolate donuts and David picked out blue and white chocolates.
Once home, I divided the frosting in half and dyed it the color of their choice. We ended up with a “Cinderella cake” and a “Spiderman cake.” Then, I put candles on the cake and we sang songs to them and let them blow out the candles!
Most fun we have had in a long time. It was a gaggle of giggles!
Have you ever let your kids decorate cakes just for the fun of it?
