CAKE -what party would be complete without a cake? I used his toy firetruck as a topper along with two red candles. Looking back I guess I should have picked two yellow, but it was a great cake. I love the "2" on the front and the Dalmatian dots all over the bottom. The design was clean and simple. Perfect, I thought.
The cupcakes were a nice addition for the little firefighters that joined the party. The cupcake toppers of the cupcakes were star like 2-inch circles I cut out using my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, and same for the star shape. I stamped the number 2 with a poke-a-dot style stamp from CTMH. Turned out cute.
To the left of the cake, I had one of his pictures on display from his 2-year photo session. Since the photo showed that kissable face, I placed a red bucket that was filled with Hersey kisses that had a yellow vinyl number 2 that was cute out using my Cricut and the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. Then I used a large binder clip with a tag that said "Cooling Water Kisses". In front of the photo, we had a red serving platter that was divided. In it was watermelon, pineapple, and blueberries.
To the right of the cake, we had another photo from his session placed in the back. In the front, was the "aww" of the party, Matchsticks! I dipped large pretzel rods into melted red candy that I bought at Michael's craft store. When the red was cooled, I dipped the very tip in yellow. They tasted great and it was a hit. Sorry I didn't have a closer picture but these are easy to make and with with a bang!
In front of the cake, we used a star mold for candy and filled them with the remaining red chocolate. Turned out to be a nice table decoration.
