Camping Birthday Cake. . .


My son recently went to a birthday party....it was a camping out party.  It was too cold to camp out, so they camped in and the birthday cake was displayed on the table.  I couldn't resist grabbing my camera and taking a couple shots!






Isn't it just adorable!!



I tried making a campfire for my son's birthday....wasn't nearly this cute!!  She used jelly beans for the fire ring, thin pretzels for the sticks and mini marshmallows!




And the trees.....they are ice cream cones upside-down on pretzel rods!!



Graham crackers make the tents and decorated M&M's resemble lightening and lady bugs!




My son's favorite part.....the party favors....they made marshmallow shooters out of PVC pipe! 


HERE's a link to a set of instructions on Instructables for how to make your own!


I'm a such big fan of "homemade" birthdays!
