Yesterday.....

This little guy.....



turned 3.



When asked what he wanted for his birthday, his response?
"I just want cake!"
So......

What could possibly be better than a Ben 10 Cupcake Tower?







A sparkling Ben 10 Cupcake Tower of course!!!  :))



Yep, said Master 3 is a bit Ben 10 mad, so what do you do when you live is a town completely underqualified in the 'Ben 10 Suppliers' category..... (and you've left it too late to shop online for supplies) ??

1.  Download a couple of iconic images and make little toothpick flags out of them!  :)
2.  Cook some yummy cup cakes.
3.  Add a smidgen of black and green food colouring.
4.  Light those sparklers.

.... and we're Goin' Hero!!  :)

Happy Birthday little man!

Love,
Mum

YAY!!!! Your lil man is one gorgeous dude!! Now we both have 3 year old boys!! LOVE the cupcake tower....FAB. Elijah loves Ben 10.....but he's never watched it in his life lol......Must get it from the older boys at daycare. Oh the joys of a 3 year old......Eli is going through a stage where he wants to do EVERYTHING by himself and throws a wee bit of a wobbly if he can't.....he also likes to shout out embarrassing things in shopping centres....like "That man is MEAN mum" or "That man has BIG boobies doesn't he mum"........I'm permanently red faced.....

He has the cheekiest little smile. Too cute. Love your cakes and with the sparklers, just ace.
I did Ben 10 cakes for my twins 5th Birthday. Had to make one green and black, one red and black and how much fun is black icing??? NOT.
DD now has a Ben 10 watch that turns her into farm animals or zoo animals. Too cute.

Ha ha ha! so had to go on Google to find out what this Ben 10 thing is about. But than only reckons when a) I don't have any kids myself b) I don't have any little boys around me either c) am a total dork when it comes to superheroes. Good for your little man that he has the coolest mum on this planet! looks like he had the bestest birthday one could wish for! super cake too! xoxo :)))

Wow, what an amazing tower!!!! That is so cool!
They grow up way too fast, before you know it he will be 21 like my eldest and you will be wondering where the years went!
