We have a winner...

I've been asking Savannah for several weeks now to narrow down her cake selection so I could place an order for her birthday cake. After going over her selections ... Mickey Mouse, Disney Princesses and Monsters Inc., she decided that Sully, Mike and Boo had to adorn her third birthday cake.
For all of you cartoon novices, those are the three major characters of Monsters Inc., a movie I've now seen dozens of times after recording it off the Starz channel. We need to find it on DVD so I can let Savannah watch it in her own room or I'll soon be able to recite it word for word.
Monsters Inc,. came out several years ago so HT no longer sold the cake kit, but I found it on eBay and bought it. I talked to the cake decorator yesterday and she told me she would decorate the cake for no extra charge since I've got the kit.
If you have a Harris Teeter nearby, I highly recommend their bakery cakes as they taste very much like the ones we've bought from the bakery but with a far less price tag.

Hey there! I hope you are going to post pictures of this cake when you're done. It sounds so cute! Baking isn't really a talent I possess, but I would love to see what it looks like. I will check back again. Thanks for visiting my blog!
