My three year old turned four on July 27th, 2010. He wanted a spider man/spider cake this year with licorice legs. I wanted his cake to be red, but after almost a full bottle of red food coloring, I ended up with more of a pink cake than a red one. I decided it was okay because it had a spider web on it, and it was not a "girly" cake even though it was pink. Next time, I think I will have to go to a craft store or a specialty bake shop to find real red food coloring.
Despite my concern for the color, my son LOVED his cake. All the cousins enjoyed the licorice legs. Overall, I think he had a happy birthday! He loved his cake, got some fun gifts, and had fun playing with all his little cousins.
He's one year older and hopefully a little wiser too. ;)
Happy Birthday Emery! || Candisco
