Birthday plans are in full swing around here. The party is on Friday (no school that day). Out of town family will be arriving Thursday night and Friday morning, and the kid-guests are set to arrive at 4:00 pm. So I am on the clock.
Everything is coming along nicely, with the possible exception of the oversized Death Star pinata, which is being a little uncooperative. (Dry, damn you! *shakes fist*)
Cake plans are completed. I think I have figured out a do-able approach for construction & decorating that will still look reasonably Imperial Star destroyer-like...but we shall see. I made marshmallow fondant for the first time (sticky, sticky fun!).
And plan on cutting out shapes to lay on top of grey buttercream to create the surface of the ship. For those of you who don't actually know what an Imperial Star Destroyer looks like:
See what I mean? Yikes. But I have a plan, and shall prevail!
(PS. the title is referencing that old Bill Murray SNL song, which is running through my head quite a bit these days! Go figure...)
