The Krakens Are Coming

I am taking a big deep breath.
I’m about to carve my first cake & I want to get it right!
I’m all nerves & jitters, but the hope that icing & cake crumbs can fix a disaster make me feel a little more confident.
Kevin’s birthday is Friday & this mama refuses to not finish his cake this year {like I did last year}.
He is turning six & I don’t even want to think about how fast these years have passed.
Instead, we are just celebrating who he is & his love for all things krakens {which inevitably led us to a pirate themed party}.

Here goes nothing…

Of course, I made a Pinterest Board all things DIY Pirate Party, ships, & cakes with krakens {my inspiration for the cake can be found here}.
As you can see, I’ll be a little MIA this week.♥

    There is a poem about krakens by Lord Alfred Tennyson; I read it today with my students. You could incorporate it into his birthday on a table tent or something. Enjoy the party!

    Oh my, THANK YOU! That is such a neat poem & I’m sure there’s some way I can use it… it fits in perfectly with the old world sailing theme! THANK YOU!
