I also plan to take leftover scraps of the 30 thousand yards of felt i am going to need to buy for all of this, and make a couple little triangle banner thingy (yes that is what i called it, the term escapes me right now as i am just now getting my morning coffee) and run them across the yard just to give it a little something extra.
The cake ~ The bottom layer will be big and round and say Happy Birthday Zeke across it, the second layer will be a little smaller and have stars along the side and the top layer is where i am going a little crazy... Saturn. yup. I am going to attempt a round cake and i have never used fondant so i think i am going to try for frosting and see how that holds if not them maybe it will be my time to learn how to use fondant! Then I'll take toothpicks to hold the "rings".. that's the general idea, i see it in my mind and i love it! I also thought about getting color copies of some other planets and sticking them in the top layer but that might be pushing it... :)
So that is what i have for right now, i feel better having written it down! I have plenty of time, Zeke's birthday isn't until May so i figure if i get it all planned this month, start making things in April i should be able to avoid some stress by the big day!
