My birthday boy's invitation: special VIP pass lanyards
I purchased everything from Office Max and used images from Google.
Directions and time info were printed on the back of the pass.
As any ghostbuster would know, it's very bad to cross the streams.
This could cause total protonic reversal.
(I also heard that these streams shouldn't be used near unpainted walls,
clothing or birthday candles.)
made using Borax, warm water, Martha Stewart's glow paint and
glow-in-the-dark fabric paint.
Martha's paint alone did NOT glow for us,
but the color was perfect.
*update: Here is a link to the Ectoplasm labels.
Loot baggies: Glow in the dark Ectoplasm, jello, pixie sticks,
glow bracelet, a twinkie, and their own can of streams to catch a ghost with!
(Notice: I forgot to take a picture of the finished bag
with their names printed on lime green slime cut-out)
Four batches of cake batter, three batches of home made marshmallow fondant,
2 bags of giant marshmallows (besides the ones used for the fondant) and a dozen donuts
were used in the making of Stay Puft and the base for the Ghostbusters.
I send a special thanks to my awesome cousin Tomas for stayingup with me until 3am (YES! 3am!!)
to finish this cake! The actual ghostbusters were purchased from
Comic Collectibles in Milwaukie, Oregon.
Note: Stay Puft is meant to look like he's melting.
Not bad for my first attempt at a 3D sculptured cake
The cake table
We added a foam "bank" to help support our tummy heavy Stay Puft cake
Genesee created a quick idea for placemats,
using lime green construction paper she cut out to resemble slime.
A special gift from his Great Uncle, Mr. Balloon Twister!
Angle shared these with his siblings on the day of
his actual birthday (2.29.2012-Leap Day),
chocolate chip cookies for breakfast!
Hand painted onto marshmallow fondant,
there is fresh whipped cream under the fondant.
My kids LOVED these!
