Pac Man Cake

My hubby turned 40 this past week.  We celebrated his birthday at home and a week later we had a party at Ed's Rec Room for some good old fashioned bowling.  Since Chris adored video games I made him pac man themed birthday cake.  I made a classic pac man interface using 2 large pieces of black construction paper for background.  Shredded indigo construction paper on an old strip shredder and used the strips to make the playing field's border.  Made ghost cookies drizzled in royal icing.  I made the ghost cookies by using tulip cookie cutter turned upside down. Place mat to display the pac man cake and cupcakes. Family gathering on May 17, 2015 Chris' actual birthday Cake designed by Charisma.  She iced the cupcakes herself!
