The cars are Eli's favorite, he'll only ride the red one though.

We had such a great time. I swore before that we'd always have simple home birthday parties, but man are they a lot of work. Eli really wanted to go to Out Of This World Pizza this year, and I ended up loving it. My house wasn't completely trashed afterwards and I didn't have to make any custom designed cakes with matching themes, ie: John Deere orConstruction. I say we make this a tradition!
We did Cake Pops for Eli's Birthday at preschool today, they were a hit! They're easy to make and just the right size for kids, not to mention tasty.
Eli, as usual, had very specific requests. He wanted strawberry cake, with red chocolate and red, white and pink sprinkles. I told him we could have that, but they would look like they were for Valentines Day. He replied "that's okay, the girls will love them". Oh my, we're going to be in serious trouble in a few years!
Rachel kindly let us borrow this : Babycakes Cake Pop Maker It worked wonderfully and cooks these tasty spheres in only a few minutes.
I'm totally making these for every birthday from now on, I've already got a plan for Lilly. Hello Kitty Cake Pops
