Who You Gonna Call? GHOSTBUSTERS!


ghostbusters birthday party cake


A couple of week’s ago, we celebrated my nephew’s 7th birthday.  My sister took charge of planning his planning and baking his cake.  As you can see, we got very creative!  She used fondant icing to creative this masterpiece!

The marshmallow man is a hand molded rice Krispy treat covered with fondant.

The slime is a sparkle icing that she purchased.  Want to know a little secret?  The bottom layer is actually a piece of Styrofoam wrapped in fondant!  We didn’t need a large cake to feed everyone so only the top layer is actual cake.

The base is just a plastic bowl flipped upside down and glued to the cake board.

The place settings were cut out of poster board.

The centerpiece consists of an arrangement of decorated sugar cookies that she made.

Who says my sister isn’t creative?  She does!  She and I are as different as night and day but I think she pulled off quite a creative little party here!  That Ethan was a lucky little boy!




Thanks for stopping by!
