A wild wild gift wrap for the zoo birthday party

I hope you liked the Zoo animals cake I shared in the last post...

Well when I came back home after helping my friends make the cake, I was super psyched and felt that I was not DONE with the theme yet. So I decided to wrap the birthday boy's gifts to match with the party theme.

So? Does it fit well with the "Zoo" theme? Here's how I did it.

Zoo themed birthday cake!

This weekend I attended a special boy's Birthday Party at the Oakland Zoo. The mother of the 4 year old teamed up with a friend and made the cutest birthday cake. As her Facebook updates showed the progress of the cake, I got impatient, left office early and reached her house to help make the cake... I couldn't help it, I just had to. Even though I could only stay a short while, I contributed to the cake by making the giraffe and the snake.

Here is a picture of the finished cake.... Isn't it lovely!

Farm Animal Cupcakes

Last week, my darling boy just turned three and we celebrated his Birthday in his classroom with these "Farm animals" cupcakes. It was so much fun to make these cupcakes and my kids could not wait to eat these.

I was up till 2 AM making the cupcakes, but they were worth the effort.
My son's favorite was the dog, while my daughter loved the duck the best. My husband thought the pig was the best and I was in love with the sheep...  would you please settle our argument and let us know which one you like the best?

And no party can be complete without the goodies...

And after the class party, the weekend was spent celebrating the event with family and friends...

See you next time!
