Garrick's 5th Birthday!

Than saw the idea on a cooking show on PBS, and it sounded fun, and it looked really realistic. It was "burgers and fries." The bun is a yellow cake mix cooked in a tuna can, cut in half, the top was glazed with corn syrup and then sprinkled with seaseme seeds. The hamburger was a brownie cooked in a cookie sheet, then cut out using the tuna can. The fries where sugar cookies rolled thin and baked. The ketchup and mustard is yellow and "red" (it was pink really, I couldn't get it to turn red) frosting put in squeezy bottles. I think I got a bigger kick out of them then the kids did. Oh, and not show are the pickles (kiwi's sliced thin). The pickles where a big hit and disapeared fast before I could make my burger.
Top left corner and then clockwise is Madyson Mickelsen, Makenzie Mickelsen, Morgan Mickelsen, and Kody Gotfredson.

Garrick, Maren Gotfredson (who I do preschool with), Kody Gotfredson, and Jack Gotfredson.

All set up for the party!

Although short, fast, and to the point (start to finish was about 35 minutes) I think all had a good time. It's crazy that we now have a 5 year old! Next year is kindergarden. My how time flies!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! What a fun party, and AWESOME cake too!! Great job! I bet Garrick loved it all. I can't believe he is 5 yrs. old, has it really been THAT long since you were just pregnant with him? Whew, time flys!
