We celebrated the Aidan's & Brennan's birthdays with my husband's side of the family on Easter.
Since Aidan had a party at Chuck E Cheese, we told Brennan he could pick the type of cake they'd have.
Brennan made it clear: he wanted a train cake.
Last year we successfully made a dinosaur cake.
I checked the Betty Crocker site again, and they had a train cake tutorial, but it seemed too much for me. Costs too much, too much detail, etc. Wasn't a good fit.
Then there was buying something like this
Both good options, but costing at least $20 and maybe not being worth it.
Then the magic happened & I found this blog post. We were hooked & inspired.
It was fun making the train cake, and I am so grateful to that blogger. ;)
My boys (especially Brennan) were very happy with their train cake.
So here it is:
Aidan's 7 candles
Brennan's 4 candles on a coal car
We are so blessed to have these 2 wonderful boys. They have big hearts & bring us much laughter and happiness.
