Last Sunday my baby turned 8 years old & we gave him a surprise birthday party! Since Connor is into everything camouflage & military, we used that as our theme complete with an Army Men Birthday cake & even Camouflage Punch (recipe below).
I baked an 11x13 chocolate cake in my Wilton Ultra Gold Cake Pan and then I made homemade chocolate frosting.
To decorate the cake, I used this army men toy set that I purchased from Amazon. I also used chocolate candy rocks that I purchased at Walmart (located in the candy aisle but not all stores carry this item).
I used some of the extra army men to decorate the table around the cake and punch fountain. The camouflage party decorations were purchased at Walmart, Party City & Hobby Lobby.
- Green Hawaiian Punch (Green Berry Rush Flavor)
- Pineapple Juice
- Pineapple Sherbet (optional)
Mix together equal parts green Hawaiian Punch and ginger ale. Add pineapple juice to taste. If serving in a punch bowl, you can add some scoops of pineapple sherbert.
