Viking Birthday Party I Toothless Cake & Loot Bags

Continuing on with the Viking Birthday Party, I didn’t want to go completely over the top with the How to Train your Dragon theme, but including Toothless made my daughter extremely happy.

Hawaiian Stitch Themed Birthday Party and a “Cake Free” Cake!

My son requested a Stitch-themed birthday party. This year was going to be different, I was going to create less work for myself!  To do this, I planned to make him a cake that he would actually eat and do away with the “traditional” cake. I usually make a traditional cake for the rest of the kids and make him a pie. But not this year. This year I had a plan…a Rice Krispies Treat cake! Easy to make, easy to mould, and loved by all.
