Cakes galore!

Jay turned five, and after much consultation with the little man, he was still in several minds of what the theme to his birthday cake should be! It was a toss-up between Avengers and Power Rangers, and so, being the good mother I am (muahahah…) I decided to give him BOTH.

For his Art Party with his schoolmates and friends, we went for an Avengers theme, and I ordered some Avengers cupcakes from a local baker, Goobycakes.

We then had a smaller combined birthday celebration for both boys with both sides of the family. Yes – though Jay and Xav birthdays two months’ apart, we decided to just have a party for both of them, while the Daddy is in town.

For this party, I decided to ask Debbie to do the honours for the two cakes. Yes – TWO cakes, so both boys don’t feel “short-changed” by this combined party. Haha!

This was worth the cost of any birthday party we threw for them. :)
