Betty Crocker's Bake Life Sweeter Birthday Party: My Baby's Robot Party!

1:23 PM


My baby (actually he is 3) just had a birthday. We rocked out with an amazing robot cake, put together with instructions I found on Betty Crocker's website. I also was fortunate enough to have some help with getting everything ready, compliments of General Mills and MyBlogSpark.

As we planned the party, I was prepared to have to work really hard for our first party at our new home. I scanned the Betty Crocker website for ideas, and presented several to our soon-to-be Birthday boy. "I am a robot," my son replied. I think we have our party theme!

It was simple, just family, and we ate my son's favorite foods: hot dogs, chips, cake, ice cream, and baby carrots! (We rarely have hot dogs, so he was thrilled!) I made a special homemade chili to top the dogs, and I even let the kids have strawberry pop (another rare event at my home.) Here is a quick video of our gathering.



We couldn't have had such an amazing party without the simple instructions and planning guide for the website. This was my first attempt at making a cake, and I think I did pretty well!

Betty Crocker has quite a few fun party themes to help you with your next birthday:

> Out of this World Space Party > Train Party
> Firehouse Party > Magical Princess Party
> Under the Sea Mermaid Party > Pandas Forever Party
> Pony Pals Party > Robots Rule Party

Our party was super-special, and according to my little guy was "the best day ever."

To be entered to win, just leave a comment with which party theme from the list above that you like best! You have until January 31st at 11:59 pm CST to get your entries in, and you can enter every day! (Just comment as directed for your first entry, and for each entry after that, type "Today's Entry!")

*Cake, frosting, debit card to buy supplies, and a flip camera were given to me from Betty Crocker and MyBlogSpark as a thank you for sharing our party experiences.

  1. Jasper will be three in July and he is OBSESSED with robots, so I think we'd pick Robots Rule party, too! Although Roo will turn six in March and she'd love the pink princess cake from the Magical Princess party... hmm...

  3. Pssst, the train party link leads to a pretty pink princess castle. I would probably pick the outer space one out of all the ones you listed. Ours won't be for a birthday though but to celebrate or commisterate in my kids case the end of The Universe video series.

    Lots of cool ideas on the BC website. The kitchen chemistry and scavenger hunt and the turtle one stood out for me.
