I love the look of bakery cakes that go with the theme of the party I am throwing. My pocketbook does not like the price tag! We talked together and compromised…. I have been doing this for a few years of birthdays and I have always luckily found a design that works with the party theme. Our Costco cakes are 17.99 for a cake that serves 48. Pretty economical for the time I spent making the cake! 🙂
For Z’s Thomas Party, I ordered the generic balloon cake and specified the colors on the cake. I then took a piece of track we had from a Thomas set and fit it onto the cake. Then all I had to do was find a few of Z’s favorite trains and add them to the track. easy peasy. Do you spy the expensive Thomas tablecloth under the cake? I used one cover and cut it to fit both the kitchen table and the buffet. Yay!
