Have you ever seen something that just stopped you dead in your tracks? That's how it was for me with this Campfire Birthday Cake!
My son just LOVES campfires - everything about them! He loves chopping the wood, stacking the logs, placing the kindling just so - and always, always, lighting that first match and hoping that it starts smoking and flaming up right away. For three seasons of the year, he would love it if we had a bonfire every single weekend.
So when his birthday rolled around this year, I knew that this would be the most perfect birthday cake for him EVER!
And the best part - a swirl of melted hard candies (Jolly Rancher Cinnamon Fire red candies and butterscotch candies) melt together in just 10 minutes in the oven. Once they cool, break the candy sheet into fire "shards" and place in the middle of the campfire.
And the smell of the warm butterscotch and spicy cinnamon candy as it melted in the oven was HEAVENLY! The entire house smelled like warm, fragrant cinnamon - it was unbelievable!
I'm already thinking of ways that I can incorporate this "fire" concept into a firetruck-themed birthday!
The fire is shimmery and clear - looks just like the real thing with the glow of candles.
Perfect for Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and all the little campers in my life! We cooked up his favorite campfire foods, and it was a quick and fabulous party - everyone was so excited to sit around the campfire and celebrate. All we need is some S'Mores now!
And to my sweet son - Happy Birthday Adam! Wishing you a lifetime of wonderful campfire memories!
