This post marks the 4 year anniversary of Blue Cupcake (this is insane!!!!!), 4 years of documenting my baking projects on this blog. Thank you so much for following my adventure! There are so many fantastic cake and baking websites, I feel privileged that you choose to stop by this address once in a while or on a regular basis. You are the reason why I keep doing this work, which I do out of passion. Thank you, THANK YOU!
What a great day we just had! My son, who will turn 7 in a few days, celebrated with a (Lego inspired) Alien Conquest themed birthday. Leesa from Send In The Clowns designed a fun invitation that gave the tone to the event. As usual, I like to get my kids' input before starting the planning process. They have so many ideas!
A few months ago, he came up with the idea of making a Jelly Bean cake... Sounds fun, so why not give it a try! Let's mix that with his favorite Lego sets, his two favorite colors, candy (he looooves candy, and I am one of those moms who limits sugar to a minimum, so that was a super treat), really fun games, his best friends, and we have a party!
Thanks to Leesa (Send In The Clowns) and Jackie (Hollywood Candy Girls) for adding your magic touches in making this day extra special!
