~*~Ocean Party~*~

After vacationing in FL this summer, my son decided that an ocean theme would just be great!
So he collected shells and I did the rest! : )
 
Here is what I came up with...
 
Ocean Layer Cake w/ shells
I loved putting this cake together! I used a box mix and added a tablespoon of sour cream to each recipe, one whole egg with the egg whites and a teaspoon of clear vanilla!
Each layer was a different shade of ocean! The 'sand' on top was created with crushed up graham crackers.  

The Extras...
The top left photo is our bait table:
Mini Chinese take-out boxes (minnow buckets)!
Ocean themed snack cakes (shells & starfish on the shore)!
Juju Fish (shark bait)!
Gummy Worms (fish bait)!
Orange Lifesavers (lifesavers)!
Blue gummy sharks (catch of the day)!

 My Favorite Party Treat!!!
