Saturday was Riley's big birthday party---he requested "Toothless" from How To Train Your Dragon. Any idea how hard it is to find dark blue food coloring?!? So I took a royal blue and mixed in a bit of black and said good enough!
I used a kind of football shaped casserole dish as the cake pan for the body, a regular 9x13 for the legs and tail and a little rounded finger bowl for the head...add in some fruit roll ups, gummy life savers and chocolate covered graham crackers and viola! Dragon! (not exactly "toothless" but it worked)
Aunt Crys found a Tails hat online...now we have 2 boys playing sonic the hedgehog..ALL The Time!
And of course, Grandpa couldn't resist trying it on too!
I'm sure he had a spectacular birthday...and was totally spoiled by all of his loving family!
