We were heading off on a special trip for Brody's birthday weekend, but I knew we had to have a little birthday celebration for him at home.  Birthdays are always such a big deal to this kid.  He just loves the cake, decorations, and pretty wrapped presents.  It doesn't take much to make this boy happy, and I love being able to do the little things that he truly appreciates.  This year, I tried to come up with a cake that I knew he would love.  One of his favorite pasttimes at the moment is playing his Skylanders game on the WiiU.  He and Evan have been playing Skylanders for several years and have amassed quite a collection of the Skylanders figurines that you use to play the game.  They have three or four of the different games so the characters coincide with the different games.     

I found some Skylanders cakes on Pinterest and thought I could tackle a simple one using some of his figurines.

The figures sit on a portal that lights up and allows them to interact with the game so I thought the cake needed a portal of power too.   Brody thought the cake was too cool to eat.  The portal of power was made with kitkats around the edge.  

Make a wish, birthday boy. 

He finally got a little present to open.  I wanted to get him more, but he really didn't ask for anything and loved his special trip so much.  He got a new Skylanders crystal for his newest game that allows you to create your own characters on the game. 

He just loves unwrapping a present. 

He was very happy to get a new Skylander, and he and Evan couldn't wait to create the character.  

On his actual birthday on our way home from our trip, we ate at a different Mellow Mushroom.  Like our usual one, this one had some cool recycled metal sculptures, and this one had a really cool Incredible Hulk and superhero theme.  I loved Hulk's fist coming through the wall of the restaurant.
