Cowabunga Birthday Cake!


Really?  Is the youngest Hott really turning eight?  Well, he is.  And here is what Levi wanted to do to celebrate this 8th birthday.  With two older sisters coming before him, I must admit that I was a bit unfamiliar with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Until now!

Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donatello arrived to mutate into a team of four teenage anthropomorphic turtles in our home for the celebration and play in the art of ninjutsu!  Following a transformation with "mutagen" turtle egg jello, turtle t-shirts, and masks, the boys all went crazy when they saw a tray of turtle cupcakes!

Gathered around for a very LOUD rendition of "Happy Birthday" heard miles away, these turtles from the sewers of New York City dove into their favorite green-masked cupcake.  As a mom, I was completely shocked by the response of this simple yet fun idea for Levi's birthday cake.  Who knew just a little ole cupcake could be so much fun?

You see, it all started with just a picture found on google while searching for an image to draw Levi's four Lego TMNT posters.  While exploring pictures, there.it.was!  Cupcakes!  

"MOM!  That's what I want for my birthday cake!"  So,... with a box of simple Betty Crocker funfetti, this mom set out to make her soon-to-be-8-year-old a mixture of mutant TMNT fun!  Equipped with a box of simple food coloring, a sister, and a friend home from school for a February snow day, we all set out to create gobs of green icing, four multi-colored masks, and some chocolate flavored icing for turtle eyes when......

"COWABUNGA!" 

We created a birthday cake to remember!  And, several happy little boys.  Check them out! (Warning, you may need earplugs!)
