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|

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