Many months ago Dee and Gracie let me know that they would love to have a Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader birthday. And even though I sometimes wish my kids would choose simple themes that are easy to pull-off, I guess it’s a good thing they don’t have any boundaries in their creativity when it comes to ideas!
Unfortunately, I do however have boundaries/limits when it comes to my being creative. Thank you google! I seem to always find something I can “borrow” when it comes to birthday cakes.
There weren’t too many results for Dawn Treader out there (I wasn’t surprised) But this one did give me something to tweak a bit.
I knew I could do the ground graham crackers for the sand and some aqua food coloring would help create the water. But the boat, oh my! No way could I do what the cake central folks could do!! I probably could have just asked around for a toy pirate/viking type boat to borrow, but I figured in Texas for a hot July birthday, I could get away with using a watermelon :-)
I think it was a success for the girls, or at least they didn’t complain otherwise :-)
