WW: Captain Underpants Birthday Party {Linky}

We had Mica's 8th birthday family party this weekend. He wanted a Captain Underpants party. Capes were made, and underwear went over tan shorts for Mica, Isaak and their Cousins Evan and Elijah.

Here's the cake:


It's not perfect, but I was happy with it. I printed out his invite backwards.


Tape the image with wax paper on top of it to a cutting board. Just put the details on with frosting, freeze. Frost the rest, freeze. I put a white coat of frosting over that, freeze. Then flip it over carefully to put on the cake, freeze. Then SLOWLY peel off the wax paper. I was so unsure if this whole process would work, or not work. It did! YAY! It wasn't perfect, but hey it looked like Mica and Captain Underpants. I'm pretty sure I froze it too many times, but I like working over frozen frosting much more than melted.


Somehow more and more kept being added to Mica's Captain Underpants costume. Super hero cape, tan shorts, underwear, water gun, baseball helmet, and an Indiana Jones Satchel.


Here's Grandma and Isaak. Isaak has her wrapped around his little fingers.

A follow-up comment as I had (in late nite fuzz) crossed my linky connections, so you went to the photoblog...nothing wrong as you will see if you look at comment response. However, for general postings such as this the link ought to be My Meno - apologies for confusion.

Very happy if others wish to post specifically on bird photography!

I never heard of Captain Underpants before but, now that I have, I must find a way to work with him for the good of all mankind. Agent 54
