My oldest turns 5 this week. We had his party a week early because coordinating a summer party and making sure all his friends are in town can be a tricky thing. He asked me to make an army cake, and really, I was flabbergasted at first. I had been planning a Hot Wheels one in my head. I think it turned out all right though. I'm very glad that Rachel at 5 year plan had recently posted an army themed cake which helped me a bit (but hers is so much better!). My son loved the cake which is the most important thing to me, and had a great time at his party!
