Happy Birthday to ME!

I recently turned the big 3-0. I really wanted an 80s themed party and wanted my cake to be a big center piece of the party. Not only did the cake come out perfectly, but I also had 0 problems while making the cake. Seriously. I always have a stressful moment or a mini meltdown when I make a cake because it always happens that something doesn't go according to plan. Not this time. It was great. We celebrated my birthday with friends and family at our house. The cool kids dressed up and the boring ones didn't (just kidding, I love you all). It was a great night and I wouldn't have wanted to ring in my 30s any other way.

Here I am, in all of my 80s glory.  

Me and my sister

My mom and me
My husband, a.k.a. Mr. T

Look at my little man.  Can he be any cooler? 
And my other little man.  Perfect rock star.

Now to my cake! Let's start with the flavors. Bottom tier is a chocolate chip cake with chocolate chip cookie dough filling. Middle tier is chocolate cake with peanut butter filling. Top tier, which is the boom box, is a funfetti cake with funfetti filling. It was delicious if I do say so myself, and I normally don't eat cake, especially cakes that I make (it's a weird thing I have I guess since I put so much time into them). What you can't see in this picture is the Pac Man scene that goes around the back of the bottom tier. I also have a cassette tape on the right hand side of the middle tier, and a sparkly Michael Jackson glove on the left side of the middle tier. I know I have pictures of them somewhere, so I'll update this if I find them.
