Happy BEE-day!

Levi turned the big FIVE at the beginning of this month.  He has been loving our bees (and their honey...I find him in the pantry sneaking honey pretty often!), so he asked for a bee themed cake.  Of course, I turned to Pinterest and Google for inspiration.  It took me a while before I found what I was looking for.  I didn't want to settle for a large bee or a traditional hive looking cake...he knows our hives and wouldn't appreciate those.  Then, I stumbled upon an awesome tutorial on youtube and ended up with a cake I was pretty darn proud of.  Was it original?  No.  Was it what I was thinking (but even better?!)  YES!  Levi loved it, and I had a lot of fun making it, and even learned a few things along the way.  (Who knew you could use bubble wrap to decorate a cake?!)

He had a blast at his party.  We went to the local gymnastics place.  I think Levi loved the foam pit the best, and so did Abby!  I need to sign her up for classes...the party host teaches the 3 year old classes and was pretty impressed with Abby's "skills" as a 2.5 year old.  Haha!

Notice, there is a "queen bee" that is bigger than the others.  I hadn't originally made one, but Levi asked about her, so of course, she showed up!

This silly boy didn't even EAT ANY BIRTHDAY CAKE!!  

(I didn't get a good pic of the inside, but it is yellow and black striped!  I made the black cakes first and told Levi I needed to start over because I burned them...haha!)

Adding wings to the bees!

All my pics are blurry...he wouldn't stay still long enough!

Simple goodie bag with Honeycomb cereal!
