Sucker bouquet

My brother turned 40 today. He keeps telling everyone he's 29 but we all know better. I decided to make his birthday a little more fun.

This is a sucker bouquet. Very easy to make! I used a crystal light container from walmart for the base. I added a glass jar of cherries inside the container to weight it down. Next use a 6 inch Styrofoam ball covered in tissue paper for the center. Tissue paper can be colored or plain. I used a glittered white piece. I cut the words on my cricut using DS and Don Juan. Layered the happy birthday sentiment and the word sucks. Stickles on the stars for a bit of bling. While that dries cove the container with a piece of paper cut to fit.

Once the words are cut hot glue skewers to the back. Use 2 skewers for the big words and 1 for the numbers. Orientate the skewers to fit the ball. I placed Happy Birthday towards the bottom, then stuck in the Sucks and finally 40 on top.

Now comes the fun part. You need 2 bags of blow pops or similar type of suckers and a 5 lb bag of dum dums. Start pushing them in to cover all the bare spots.

Toilet Cake


Made this cake for my friend and neighbor. He is the type of guy who is there to help you in any way possible. Always mowing the lawns, snow plowing, snow blowing, and what ever else needs to be done without being asked. A good shit!

This took a bit of planning and several hours to construct. Take a heavy piece of cardboard for the base and cover it with wax paper. You will need to fold one end up about 6-8 inches and cut a slit in for the cover. The cover is from a 12 inch pizza. Fold one end of the circle about 2-3 inches. Slide the pizza disc into the hole on the cardboard and secure. I placed 2 pieces of ribbon on the edges to ensure it so it wouldn't fall on top of the cupcakes.

Make the cupcakes according to the box. Let completely cool before frosting! Frost them as normal and let set for 2-3 hours. This allows the frosting to become stiff so when you add the final layer the frosting will not fall off later.

Mix a package of blue berry jello according to the box. Make sure to use very hot water so the jello will come out clear. Pour half the jello in a cake pan. Let set in the fridge for 20 mins. Cut up 2 mini Baby Ruth candy bars into small pieces. Place the pieces in the center of the jello to look like some one pooped. Add remaining jello and refrigerate over night.

To assemble: place the jello mold in the center and add 12 cupcakes around it. Using the remaining frosting add a layer to form a solid toilet seat. It's ok it some falls off or in between the cupcakes. For the saying use micro soft word to generate.
