This weekend was a fun Nemo themed party for an adorable little boy in our playgroup. The top layer is white cake with a strawberry mousse filling and the bottom layer is my most often requested combo, chocolate cake with cream cheese icing.

This weekend we celebrated Marshall's 4th Birthday. I can't believe he's already 4 years old! When I asked him over a month ago what kind of party he wanted he immediately said a space party, so that's what he got. We had a rocket ship cake with cupcake planets. The cupcakes were chocolate cake with brown sugar cookie dough icing and the cake was chocolate with cream cheese icing.
This was a great shot we got of Marshall seeing his space walk castle being blown up, my little cowboy was so excited!
Every year I make my kid's cakes I don't let them see it until right before the party and I make sure to have someone get a picture of their first reaction...............this is what makes it all worth it! "Whoa mama, it's a beautiful rocket ship!"
