Happy Birthday Jon!!
Our adventures with fun cakes began a couple years after we were married. I asked Jon what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday. I expected him to say something like "chocolate," but instead he said, "A Pirate Cake!" I decided to go for it, and this was the result. Almost every year since has brought new challenges, both from him and our kids! This year, he wanted a "Muddy Pigs Cake!" And this was the result:
We were inspired by this cake. To make it safe for everyone in our home, we used a sugar-free chocolate cake mix and frosting...though they still tasted very much like "normal" cake and frosting! The fence is from kit-kats with a green ribbon wrapped around them. Hint: If you make a muddy pigs cake too, freeze the kit-kats before you unwrap them...they're a lot easier to work with!!
I made the pigs with a marshmallow fondant (yep, none for Ryleigh!):
Jon had lots of help blowing out the candles!
And the kids even made him his own birthday banner:
Happy birthday to the best man EVER!!!
