When Eric was little I would make him all kinds of treats for special occasions.
On St. Patricks day I would make green eggs and ham, or green pancakes.
For dinner I would serve green mashed potatoes.
This is simple to do with a little green food coloring. But be warned...a little food coloring goes a long way.
I learned this the hard way at Erics 5 year old birthday party.
I decided to make 4 little cakes of the Ninja turtles who were his favorite at the time.
I made green cake with the four colors of the turtles as frosting. We had a red turtle cake, a blue turtle cake, a yellow turtle cake and I think an orange turtle cake.
The kids loved it!
One problem...after eating the cake I decided to take a picture of all the kids together and told them all to smile.
You guessed it. Green teeth.
The parents didn't think it was as funny as the kids.
Guess I went overboard on the food coloring. LOL
But to this day they all remember the turtle party and the green teeth. LOL
Do something special that can make memories for your own kids....only watch out for the green smiles!
