Call of Duty Black OPS Cake and Party Favors

P1000759My daughter recently had a Call of Duty Black OPS theme birthday celebration.  For her party, I made the cake and cupcakes you see pictured here.

The birthday cake was a chocolate cake frosted with white icing.  I then accented the cake with a personalized edible cake topper.   I was very happy with how it turned out!

For the cupcakes, I frosted them with chocolate icing as well as icing tinted army green.   I then topped the cupcakes with plastic army men.

The finished cake and cupcakes were placed on a cake board covered with camouflage duct tape.

Lastly, we handed out chocolate bars for the party favors.  The Hershey chocolate bar wrappers featured an image of the Call of Duty Black OPS 2 Zombies and were customized with my daughter’s name and party date.

Please visit my Call of Duty Party Supplies page for lots more party ideas for these birthday theme.

Kit Kat Birthday Cake

kitkatcakeI have come across different versions of this Kit Kat cake on the Internet and have always wanted to give it a try.

So yesterday I  made it to celebrate my daughter’s 12th birthday.   It was amazing!  Just be sure to have lots of milk on the table since you will be engulfed in chocolate goodness!

Here is how to make a Kit Kat cake:

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate Kit Kat bars; approximately 30-40 bars
  • Boxed cake mix or your favorite recipe
  • Chocolate frosting
  • A bag of M & M chocolate candies

Instructions:

  • Bake your cake in two 9″ x 2″ round cake pans
  • Once cooled, completely cover one cake with chocolate frosting.  Then, place the other cake on top and completely frost that cake as well.  This will create your tiered cake.
  • Once the cake is frosted, place the Kit Kat bars all around the sides of the cake.
  • Fill the top of the cake with M & M candies
  • Tie a ribbon around the entire cake for a beautiful presentation

This Kit Kat cake can be made to fit any party theme.   You can incorporate this cake into your child’s birthday party by selecting specialty ribbon and M & M candy colors to coordinate with the party theme.   You can also substitute another candy in place of  the M & M’s if your child has a favorite candy they prefer instead.  If you are looking for a healthier version of this cake, you can top it with strawberries or other fruit.

Enjoy!
