time to figure out the birthday cake(s)

gotta love doing “research” on pinterest for party stuff …. #3′s birthday party is on saturday and after her homemade (and rather fancy) rapunzel cake from last year, well, we are now into the expectation for another high maintenance cake … i am really blessed to have a future sil who is great at baking … i don’t have the patience or baking “skills” to do the actual baking, but i can usually do the decorating and enjoy that part … so that makes us a pretty good team and we’ve turned out a few really nice looking and yummy cakes …. anyways … #3′s party is at a sea themed party place so i went to my cake board to browse cakes … so here’s what i’m thinking …. since we actually have to TAKE cake for 40 people to the venue (i have NO idea how it got so large since we don’t usually do outside parties) and since between the two of us we only have 8″ rounds and 9×13 pans (i know, laugh), i am thinking beach bucket cakes! easy to port and should be easy to serve … plus we can make different flavors!

so little girl wants a chocolate cake … so i’m thinking we can do a mint chocolate chip frosting for one bucket … i have been wanting to try this cake for a while since mint choco chip has been a favorite ice cream flavor of mine since forever ago … ;)

… for the second cake bucket i am thinking a S’MORES type ensemble …. mmmm …. there are soooo many different variations of s’mores cakes and treats on pinterest …. these are the ones i’m contemplating the most ….


i’m not sure yet if we’ll need a third cake bucket but i’m leaning towards a non-chocolate option for those *gasp* non-chocolate people …. which do you think sounds better? cinnamon toast crunch cake …

or a refreshing lemon cake?

now this one really isn’t an option but it’s so adorable so i just have to share it in case anybody else is pinspired to make it …. i don’t think it’d make the best bucket cake so it doesn’t make the cut this time ….

anyways … that’s all the pin chatter … school is officially out so this pinpossible mission is really about to start … even my 8 year old is really getting excited about it and has a few projects she wants me to search to pin and add to our to-do list …. so i guess let’s get this party started, right? =) wooooohooooo it’s SUMMERTIME!!!!
