Happy Birthday Trevor

Today my son is 17!!!  We celebrated with a party yesterday.  My daughter and her boyfriend came for the weekend.  My parents along with my brother and 3-year old nephew came for the day.  We went out to eat at Olive Garden; Trevor picked that because he loves their soup and bread sticks.  Since I recently made my nephew the firetruck cake (posted picture previously) I have been asking my son what he wanted this year for his cake.  We weren't coming up with a good solution.  I have made Elmo, Batman, horse, Winnie the Pooh, and many cakes for my kids he was even coming up with some inappropriate things for a 17 year old and showing me that they even make such cake pans.  So.....I decided on cupcakes when I saw a kit at JoAnn's this weekend for sharks.  He thought it was funny, but thought it wasn't right because it was too easy for me.  I even used store frosting since the kit had enough liners, but not enough shark items (24 liners - but only made 12 sharks).  It actually worked out well with my friend being in the hospital this week, and everything else going on it was good not to spend several hours decorating a cake.  I did get him a neat Spiderman balloon with some plates and napkins to match.
I made this card for my Mother, who is invited to a baptism.
