Zinger cakes....

August, September, and October are birthday months in our house.  I initially pinned this from Heidi Swapp...I loved the idea of using hostess zingers and cupcakes.  What's even awesomer (I know not a word....) we have a hostess bakery outlet semi close to my house.  I was able to get my boxes of treats for only $1.40 instead of like almost $4!  The best part they were still good.

If you notice the boy's "cakes" use the same elements, the only difference are the banners...the cakes were layered up depending on how many guests were coming, they each got a cupcake and a zinger (and ice cream) the kids LOVED having their own treat and it was EXACTLY the same size. :)  Both the boy's cakes I used the dots and dashes line from Echo Park.  The skewers I bought at Walmart in the kitchen section along with the toothpicks.
 Don't know if you can tell but the cupcakes are layered up and have stickles on them.  They are Maya Road.

 The girls that came to my daughter's party were SO excited about the cake.  I was excited to use pink (strawberry) cupcakes! :)  I had a fun time mixing lines of Echo Park for this one--my daughter was SO surprised--(her  "cake" was the first I made of the three)

I would TOTALLY do this again--basically a no brainer!  The actually assembly took me less than 10 minutes.  The making of the paper products a little longer.
I did keep each of the kids name banners, might just have to use them on their birthday layouts...or do a frame or something....
Thanks for popping in for a visit--sure hope that your day is WONDERFUL!
