Daxton's 7th Birthday

I can't believe that Daxton is seven years old. My how the time flies! This year for his Birthday party he wanted to have a Star Wars party. Every year since he was born I have made my kids cakes, but this year I knew it was going to be a challenge finding a cake pan to go with his theme. I started looking for a cake pan about a month before his birthday and wasn't having very good luck, because all of the Star Wars Wilton cake pans have been dis-continued. The only place that I was able to find them was on Ebay, but they are now considered vintage and the cheapest ones I could find was still over $50.00. One of my moms friends used to make all of her kids cakes when they were younger, so we thought we would ask if she had one. We new that the chances of her having a Star Wars cake plan wouldn't be that good since that was so long ago; but to our surprise she had an R2D2 cake pan....which by the way was the cake that Daxton wanted. I was so excited that I was going to be able to make him the cake he really wanted.
This year I made most of the party favors, I never thought that they would love the light sabers that I made as much as they did...they all went nuts over them. It was a really fun party!
