My littlest one turned six and asked for a Pokemon Birthday. If you played Pokemon Go in the last year few years, then you might have a clue about these little Pocket Monsters, but if not; it’s basically a fun anime style show about catching Pokemon, training them, and battling them against other Pokemon.
I do a birthday every other year for my kids. So, each year we have one party, but they they have to wait two years between them. I absolutely LOVE throwing parties. It brings me and my boys so much joy, so for as long as I can utilize this creative outlet, I will continue to do so. Click here, to see some of the past parties that I’ve thrown. Throwing a Pokemon themed birthday party is a great gender neutral party, that everyone can enjoy.
I didn’t have a recipe or “template” for this cake. My LO had just said he wanted a poké ball. My front fondant was too heavy, and kept falling off, it looked so cute, the night before, but c’est la vie. I used marshmallow fondant, red on top, covering half, white on the bottom, and covered the overlap, with the black “belt” piece.
This year was no exception. As affordably as I can, I basically go all out. Because I like high end touches, without high end prices, I end up crafting and baking a lot more than most people are probably willing too. But I love it. The wind was insane, and we were waiting to see if it would rain up to the final hour. And the marshmallow fondant on this cake, gave me a run for my money, but we tweaked it all out in the final hours.
