Birthday Giveaway


My boy is turning 4 on Saturday, CrA-ZY! Should I tell you all about how old I feel? I could. I could write a whole post about it and some, but I think instead I'll focus on just celebrating the fact that this little guy is the bestest little guy out there and I am so very glad he's my son.

I want to celebrate him every day of his life, and frankly so does he. He's been asking about his birthday party since his last birthday party. Now we're in the final stretch. The invitations are made, they look exactly like the picture above except with info about location, date, and time. The menu is pretty much decided, Enzo gets to decide the entire menu and so far it's an interesting one.

I need to order baloons, I'm thinking of a bouncy house, I need to figure out music.... so much to do, I love it!

This whole week I'll be positing about preperations for his party and fun food ideas. Come celebrate with us and if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

To kick of our celebration Enzo is giving away not one piece of cake but an entire cake for a fellow little foodie.
We found this lovely toy at Maukilo. They have the best and cheapest selection of HABA toys that I could find  and lots and lots of play food.

Maukilo is an easy site to navigate, which is key for busy moms. I found exactly what I wanted, ordered it, and they shipped to my house so fast. I was expecting the cake to arrive later this week but we already got it and have been playing with it every day since. Enzo is a fan of play food but I think the cake is his new favorite. Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway maukilo you guys are the bestest, just like Enzo.

What a fun giveaway! My daughter Katie, 3, would adore this cute cake. My favorite cake would have to be the "mermaid" doll cake and mini-cakes I made for her birthday last year. It was worth all the effort just to see her sweet eyes light up! It's on my blog (but I won't spam you with a link ;)

Cheers!

I never don't really have a favourite, because each birthday that roles around I am trying something new. Why be tied down to one flavour? Although chocolate is a running theme in my life.

When I was a kid, I always asked my mom for chocolate cake with "sticky" frosting. Now I like vanilla with a buttercream icing.

when I was a kid my mom used to make us a poke cake for our birthdays. She would bake a cake and then with a tooth pick poke a bunch of holes in it. she would then make up our favorite flavor of jello and pour it over the cake. when you cut slices of the cake it is streaked with yummyness. As a kid I thought it was the prettiest thing.

I love yellow cake with chocolate frosting.

My mom always made us Jell-o cakes though. They are white cakes that liquid jell-o is poured over and then cooled, frosted with whipped topping and garnished with fruit.
