I like to wait till the last minute to plan birthdays. And then come up with so many over the top idea’s that it doesn’t LOOK like I waited till the last minute! I call it the procrastinators dream! So that’s how I decided to make an entire zelda themed day for Brandon’s Birthday this year! Shhhh don’t tell him that part, he has no idea! 😉
First present, sleeping in. Let’s be real, this is the BIG one, the one that we dream of all year, the one you don’t appreciate until you have 2 monsters in front of your face when you wake up each morning. So while he slept I sneakily made 30 crepes and stacked them with layers of peanut butter and cream cheese. Then drizzled them in chocolate sauce and sprinkles. YES it totally tasted as good as it looked. And I promise the crepe recipe is coming this week! Want to know Brandon’s reaction for this masterpiece? “why didn’t you just make regular crepes?” MEN! But it’s his birthday so I didn’t murder him for that comment.
Moving right along we have the amazing pixel filling heart mug! From amazon if you also have a video game lover in your house! Seriously, amazon is what helps me pull off most of my amazing last minute plans. He also received Zelda socks and Zelda Yahtzee from the kids.
For dinner I really outdid myself, Frozen Pizza! But 2 flavors so kinda of a big deal. I also served them in the triforce symbol. Yup I’m a gourmet chef in the making.
Here’s the thing I ACTUALLY put time and thought into. Every year I make Brandon a giant amazing cake. There was the peanut butter sandwich, the oreo cake, the reese cup chocolate cake. I always go all out. But this year I wanted to make it extra special. So I whipped out the fondant and got creative. I love the way it turned out. It really wasn’t too hard. I used premade fondant. Colored it yellow, printed out the image I wanted to use, and traced around it. I have been making cakes for along time but it gets easier with practice every time. Trust yourself, you are capable of so much more than you think.
We ended up playing Yahtzee with friends all night. It was a great evening. Happy Birthday Bman, we love you so much. Can’t wait to plan your next birthday a couple days before next year too.
