Today I’m gonna tell you about A Swamp Party: Alligator Cake & Grass Cupcakes. I made these sweets for my nephew Tucker when he celebrated his 3rd birthday back in 2014 and had a Swamp Party.
Amy (my sis-in-law) and her Mom set up the cutest party!! Here are a few pics of the decorations, then I’ll tell ya about the cake and cupcakes…
This was the sign at the end of their driveaway:
And there were gift bags…
And alligators galore in “the swamp”:
And the main alligator… Tucker!
And the awesome table and foods ya’ll…
I made the alligator cake topper with modeling chocolate. He wasn’t perfect but I was pretty happy with him! Tucker wanted him to have lots of teeth – but I didn’t want him to be too scary, so I tried to do both happy and lots of teeth!
He looks like a good guy, huh?
Oh – and the cupcakes…. I forgot to get a good pic of them alone, but you can see them well here:
I used a large grass tip to do these… I just kept them simple and a little messy… to fit in the swamp! I used the same tip around the borders of the cake as you can see above.
And that’s all I’ve got, I think! Everything at the party was SO cute and well-done. Amy & her Mom always throw a great party!! You can see Tucker’s 1st Birthday Party here, his 2nd Tractor birthday cake here (I had to miss that party so no pics), and his brother Rodney’s 1st Birthday Monster Party here.
