My daughter will be two on the 29th of May and I have spent the last week(to her fathers dismay) fretting over what to do for her birthday! She only has... two... yes, two little buddies that I could invite being as she is not in daycare nor any playgroups in our area. I thought that I could sculpt her a brilliant cake for her birthday to make up for this, as my mother did for me for years(and I still remember most of them... thanks, mom). My ideas were in the character catagory until I read a blog comment about the son of a woman that made him an Elmo cake for his 2nd b-day. She said everything went fine until they had to CUT the cake.... her little one FREAKED out, screaming and crying that she had "killed" Elmo!
I do not want this! lol Does any one have some good ideas for b-day cakes? I was trying to go with something that I could incorporate fruit/ gummies, etc!

THanks.... funny that 2 is all the friends she really has... However there will be plenty of adults, some that she is not to fond of (my father, for some reason)! I didn't really think about all the do and don't of the b-day cake the other day. SO OVERWHELMING! My man is diabetic and cannot have sugar, my best friend is allergic to artificial sweeteners, and my daughter and one the proposed guests can not have certain dyes, due to hyper activity! LOL So funny how quickly life changes when you have kids!

I would have never thought about the cutting of a character cake causing a child to get upset. I'm glad that you had posted that. We are having a jungle theme so we are making a monkey cake. We are also making candy molds of jungle animals hanging from trees made out of pretzels as centerpieces. I got the idea from Wilton.

You could make a large cake for the guests and a separate cake for your daughter so that the cutting of the cake wouldn't upset her. She would be the one in charge of destroying her special cake.

Don't feel bad about the lack of little buddies to invite. Landon won't really be having any one his age there. He too stays at home and doesn't really have any friends his age. As long as family is around then your daughter will be happy. Plus, too many kids will probably overwhelm her. They say the key to keeping a young child happy is to only invite as many guests as the child is old. That means for a two year old to only invite two of her friends.
