Using the airbrush was easy. The colors went on fairly even and, for the red stripes anyway, spraying the color was more effective than mixing red food coloring into fondant and cutting out the stripes. We used ribbon to "tape off" the stripes and then outlined them with a black food color marker.
Gavin's party was at the Olympic Fun Center in Hermitage, PA. It's similar to a Chuck E. Cheese because it has arcade games and a play area, but it also has a laser tag area, a roller rink and party rooms. The party rooms must have been painted in the late 80s or early 90s because they are all bright yellow, orange and green. It's a little wild as far as decor goes, but the colors made a fun, colorful backdrop for the cake.
The cake was very tall. I think it was over two feet high. It was also very heavy. Cake weighs a lot!
And, what would a birthday party post be without a picture of the birthday boy?
Gavin & Pokey
Happy Birthday, Buddy!
