Holy cow. I can't believe he is already 7. Time is totally flying.
Timmy is addicted to the computer game Stronghold Crusader. Absolutely ADDICTED. So when we were thinking about a cool cake to make him, I thought it'd be absolutely awesome if we were able to do a fortress like on that game. THEN we were thinking ... wouldn't it be even cooler if we made 2 fortresses and had them fighting?
So the hubby and I sat down and discussed how it should be made. One gluten free cake mix, made up in the brownie cake pan that separates them into pieces while baking. One gluten cake mix, made up the same way. Then the hubby went a building, just like a little kid with Legos!
Castle Gluten Free!
Gluten free chocolate cake. Gummy bear soldiers with plastic toothpick swords. Hershey kiss parapets. Fruit roll flags. Gluten free ice cream cones for the towers. Rice Chex "thatched roof" over the center of the fortress.
Regular cake, teddy graham soldiers with plastic toothpick swords. Hershey kiss parapets. Fruit roll flags. Ice cream cones for the towers. Rice Chex for the "thatched roof" over the center of the fortress.
Gluten free soldiers made it over to the Gluten castle. They are climbing a pole (cappucino stick) to get up to the top of the castle and take it over!
The face off!
We tried to do something awesome for him. We didn't want him to have a boring, tasteless birthday cake. He, and everyone at the party loved it! :) Yay!
As for the actual party ... hmm... well you can read my review of THAT here. Ugh.
