Jacob's Birthday

So for Jacob's golden birthday I made him breakfast in bed (but we just ended up eating at the table). When he got back from school we had him pretend to be Mario and try to find 26 hidden stars around the house. The stars were glued onto a card that had a picture of one of the girls and one of the many things we love about him. The girls also painted a birthday banner for Jacob. For dinner Jacob requested the dinner we had for Valentine's Day (homemade crusty bread with bruschetta; salad with feta cheese, green lettuce, cran rasins, apple, walnuts, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing; pasta from Rachael Ray: Chicken Parm Pasta Toss). For dessert I made a Mario cake for him. It was so much fun! The Mario and the star was made with sugar cookie and the cake part was mini cupcakes (84 of them!). It was very yummy to eat too!

Mario before I baked him.

This is what the star and Mario looked like after they came out of the oven.

The finished cake. I used about 84 mini cupcakes and just placed the cookies on top of the cakes.
