I learned a lot during the process, and hopefully I can share that with you here. Next time I make these (or something like this) I know I will hit a home run. Don’t get me wrong, the kids thought these were GREAT. I just know they can be so much better with the little lessons learned.

I finally came to the conclusion that I was going to have to come up with most of the birthday party “stuff” and the cake myself.
