M&M birthday cake

So, we took Mason's m&m birthday theme to the extreme with lots of bright colors, balloons and m&m's galore.  This banner is bright cs cut into 11.5" circles cut with my cricut.  I then cut out the letters in m&m style and glued them on.
Here is his personal cake.  My sister, a friend and I put all of those m&m's right before the party.  Notice the little M for Mason!  For the guests we made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes frosted in bright m&m colors and sprinkled with powdered sugar through a cricut cut stencil to look like m&m's.  Never one to underprepare, I made 48 cupcakes.  Oh, well.  We had cupcakes for breakfast!
Mason is just eying his cake.  We blew out the candle and you can tell he is just wondering where to start!
See the adorable birthday hat I made?!  I forgot to put it on him, and when I remembered, he just wasn't having it!  The puff is a yarn pom pom I made, and of course all of the paper is cut with scal and cricut.
Okay, enough of the hat, mom!  Let's eat!
My little boy made quite a dent in that cake!

All done!  Thanks for visiting, and thanks so much for all of the thoughtful comments that have been left over the last few days.  Every time the little red light on my BlackBerry flashes, signaling that one of you left me a sweet comment, I smile.  Thank you for making me smile!

OMG! Those are the funniest pictures! I love the last one, too cute! Great job on the cake, I don't think I have the patience to decorate like that, I would probably eat them all.
