Pokemon seems to be much more popular now than to when I was growing up. Evolved is what they call it, I think. For this table, I kept the characters to a minimum of Jacobs favorite Pokemons. Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Axew and Bulbasaur is who he chose. Instead of over doing the usual red and white color theme of the pokeball, Anne requested that I mix in primary colors to represent all the characters.
Classic Carrot Cake Cupcakes
Teamwork cupcakes! My friend Brittany makes one of my favorite flavored cakes, the classic carrot cake. I'm pretty sure she gets requests all the time for these. And hers is a personal favorite of mine. Topped with cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with walnuts, yummy... just thinking about it. I always look forward to it, and what more for them in cupcakes?! These Pokemon cupcake toppers were designed right from my Google Drive app. A lot of magic happens for me on that free app. Designing at the tip of my fingers. Love it! I used this awesome Pokemon font generator that helped put the perfect touch of personalization to Jacob's Pokemon sweet bar.
Pokeball Kit Kat Basket Cake
So I normally don't bake cakes anymore like I used to. For me, it takes me a whole day to bake and decorate, which takes up a whole lot of time if I had a table to decorate as well. But this one caught my attention, a Pokeball Kit Kat cake! So I had to do it. And I did! I have to say, I am pretty proud of myself. The tricky part for me was having the Kit Kats stay put before I can tie a pretty secured ribbon around it. Come to find out, it wasn't as tricky as I assumed. It was more tricky for me to break off the Kit Kats without breaking them in half.
Wished I would have fixed that one little red M&M on the left that's sitting on the chocolate ball. It's driving me nuts! Can someone show me how to fix that on Adobe? I'm sure thats pretty possible. But I'm still proud of myself.

Since these two little adorable people were celebrating their birthdays together,
I went ahead and made a two sided photo board. These foam boards alone cost almost $20!
So to get more out of our money and materials, I made one side for Jacob's Pokemon theme and the other for Bella's Fiesta theme.
