Grave Digger Monster Truck Birthday Party and Cake
The actual Gravedigger came together fairly quickly and easily. I'd say the hardest part was the wheels. I used crispy treats and I really just don't love that as a medium, not the way I did it anyway. I covered them with buttercream and fondant, and then hand painted the rest of the details. That was it!
Anyway, back to the party. It was a swimming party in the middle of a long, cold, Nebraska winter, hence the super casual bathing suit/snow gear dress code. Not everyone gets to do that. I'm thankful to be able to do the little things like that, the things our kids will always remember. I'm also thankful that they are so grateful for my minimal efforts!
I'm a wife and homeschooling mom to 4 kids! We move a lot, as we follow my husband in his career and we stay busy, even when we don't leave the house. I love my church, missions, teaching younger adults, volunteering/mentoring in the foster care community, making/eating cake, sewing, cutting wood with power/tools, music, pinterest, and other really random stuff. As you can imagine, I rarely have time for most on that list. However, on a whim, I'll combine as many items on the list as possible, throw in a little ADHD hyper focus, and create something. So, I thought I'd share my part time whimsy with you.
