  13. Party Food and Especially Party Cakes. and Se7en Bazzillion Cake Ideas:

    And then there are birthdays, the one thing that every child remembers from every party is “The Cake” it is far more important than any activity or jumping castle. And yet kids are extremely forgiving (or imaginative) and if you tell them your collapsed cake is a castle they will go with you on it – trust me I have close to fifty of just my kids parties under my belt (12 + 10 + 8 …) and kids are very forgiving!!!
