It is a PARTY!!!

We celebrated Kayla's 15Th birthday with a "Cake Boss" theme. My mother-in-law graciously baked a small cake for each guest. I provided icing, fondant, M&M's and lots of decorating tools to help Kayla and her pals display their creative "sweet" side. They had a BLAST!!!

Kayla made her sign that hung on the wall. We had the party in our youth room at church. I bought cheap plastic tablecloths to cut down on the mess. Kayla's FAVORITE colors are purple and green.

I made everyone wear these goofy baker's hats for fun picture moments... including her "oh so cool" brother. :)

Here are a few samples of the cakes made by her friends...
This one was CUTE. Her friend Zach made cars our of fondant.

Chloe made an M&M cake.
They voted on the cakes and this "star" cake was the winner.
Cute little ocean scene made by friend Courtney.

Jordan was allowed to invite a friend who is the brother of one of Kayla's friends. His creation kind of scared me just a little...

Another pal created this pink and green starred cake.

Kayla's cake was suppose to be our dog's head on top, I think, but I think she gave it horns instead of ears. :)
Jordan's cake looked like something our of a Dr. Seuss book.

Daddy joined the fun too.

There were a few other masterpieces that didn't manage to get a photo op. :( However, every kid had a GREAT time.
Grandma and Papa came to see what all the fun was about.

Of course mom and dad got birthday hugs.
And "YES!" my kids really do love each other.
I promise!

Overall it was a fun day celebrating this beautiful girl, inside and out, that we love so much.

I am so blessed.

My sister-in-law did Cupcake Wars for her daughter - that was fun too.

Happy 15th Kayla!

What a fun party. I did a chef party one year for my oldest. She loves the cooking channel. I will have to show her your post. She loves watching the cake boss. I hope everyone enjoyed eating their cake as much as they had decorating it :) Yum
