Minecraft Birthday Party, Pt. 2

As I mentioned in Minecraft Party Part 1 there is not much Minecraft supplies out on the market.  It's not like I could run to Party City and buy party supplies or order a cake from the bakery with a Minecraft theme.  Luckily I found a seller who supports cancer research and sells edible cake toppers on ebay. It was so easy. I ordered a plain cake with only borders from the bakery and carefully added the cake topper. The topper was brightly colored and exactly like the Minecraft image.  It really does not have a taste to it just like gum paste. I'm so glad I found it because my son asked me to make a cake that is in the Minecraft game and I did not have time to do it.  Here's the seller on ebay if you're interested.

I wanted to figure out a way to help cancer research fund raising and I also have been interested in selling on ebay. I combined these two interests and donate a portion of all proceeds to cancer research.  (http://myworld.ebay.com/cakesforcures2003?_trksid=p2047675.l2559)  

You can also find Minecraft toys and T-shirts on Amazon.  Below is the sword in the game.  I don't have a picture of the shirt.  We ordered a large adult shirt and it acutally fit our 12 yr old boy.

Everyone knew the end of the world was not really going to take place on Dec. 21 just because the Mayan calendar suddenly stopped but there was such hoopla about it that it became a joke.  My son's birthday is December 22 so I thought it would be fun to add a music CD with  "end times" and other relateable songs in the goodie bag for the party. We did songs such as "It's the End of the World," "Sugar, We're Going Down," and "Stayin' Alive".

We had a great time at Amazing Jake's.  The kids are all old enough to run around on their own while we adults sat at the tables and talked for 3 hours. Amazing Jake's has a buffet that we can continue to get food from thoughout the day.  It's not the greatest food but it will do. The kids really enjoy the endless amounts of pizza.  The kids were given cards that they scanned to play video games, ride go karts, rock climbing, and play laser tag and putt putt.  The only drawback is the kids run out of credits for video games quickly on their cards if they're not too careful.
