"This kept my 2-year-old busy for an entire hour and my 4-year-old busy for 2 hours! YAY! Drop vinegar tinted with food coloring onto a pan filled with baking soda. Sheer minutes of colorful fizziness!
Fishing Birthday Cake. Add a Disney spin to it for my dad celebrating his 60th at Disney World - Have goofy as the fisher man, add Cinderella's castle, Mickey and Minnie in a boat. Same colors: yellow to light orange to dark orange and the black silhouettes (a red bow for Minnie) "Happy 60th Birthday Papa" on Top of the cake in dark blue.
All cake except for fondant antlers. It is kindof difficult to describe how it was done, but I will try. The neck is an upside down doll pan. I placed dowel rods in this then cut a board for the snout and head to sit on top. The head and snout are carved from 6" round cakes put together. I made the antlers way ahead of time with fondant so that they had time to dry hard. The ears are also fondant. The rest is just buttercream icing.
