When we left Vermont, I decided that I wanted to throw a party for Buddy when we were in Connecticut. It will be awhile before we have close friends in Texas, and we won’t have any family there. So, I wanted to celebrate with our close friends and family before we left. I planned the theme months ago…Noah’s Ark. I mean, what other theme could you have for a little boy named Noah? I found some cute ideas on Pinterest and kind of just went with it.
This is the real-deal cake. How amazing is it? I told my friend I wanted Noah’s ark, however she wanted to do it. This FAR exceeded what I had hoped for! She put puppies on the front because Buddy loves puppies! This is such a special cake! And, it was completely made from scratch; the fondant was even orange creamsicle….yum!!! Seriously, the fondant tasted amazing! I was blown away by the whole thing!
I saw these favors on Pinterest. When I went to fill them I realized how many Skittles it would take. A friend suggested I put “clouds” on either end. If I ever do this again I will use the smaller Gatorade bottles, but I still love how they turned out!
