A Minecraft Birthday

This is just a quick post I wanted to share from Talon's seventh birthday. I always try to go all out on birthdays. Sometimes I'm more satisfied than others! Talon turned seven in September and we finally decided on Minecraft for the theme. I made a small, double stacked, square cake that looked like the pixel cake from the game. My mother gave me a lot of grief about making such a small cake, but with all the Minecraft themed snacks... Well, we had quite a bit of cake leftover.

None of the pictures I took turned out to be very high quality. I think I might have had a smudge on my lens and not realized it, but you should be able to catch the gist from what I've provided. A lot of google searching I found probably too many plenty of minecraft images. After improvising and some fancy schmancy work on my part, I created label for all the snack dishes and coordinated edible versions of minecraft items to the labels, as you can see above.

This was a relatively simple idea and a pretty big hit with everyone, adults included. I did my best not to make all the edible Minecraft items candy, so you can see I had chicken nuggets (AKA cooked chicken), pretzels (AKA sticks), eggs, carrots, etc.
