Favorite Things - Walmart Birthday Cakes

I must confess that I am horrible at planning ahead for my kids' birthdays. It's probably because I really have a hard time with the presents thing (which I've written about before), and every year I don't know if I should have a family-only party or let them have friends over or what.

So this puts me in a weird spot when it comes to their birthday cakes! If I don't plan ahead, I obviously can't find some amazing cake decorator to do one for me. And my mom has been known to make some adorable cakes for the kids, but if I don't make up my mind until the week of their birthdays, that's a little too late to find a cake pan for her.

It's a good thing Walmart only requires 24 hours to make a cake!

I was reluctant to get one because I thought it wouldn't look anything like the picture. But they were even cuter in real life - I'm not sure if my pictures even do them justice. And more importantly...the kids LOVED them.

My two August birthdays!

Caleb's Phineas and Ferb cake.  He turned 8 on August 5th.

Sarah's My Little Pony cake.  She turns 6 on August 25th.

We had a family-only party at Chuck E. Cheese's yesterday, and I brought these cakes with us. It was a lot of fun, and the cakes were soooooooo yummy.

So if you need a cute cake, you can utilize the Walmart bakery! Chrissy approved! :)
