Pacman Birthday Party – Waka, waka, waka
Or is it wakka, wakka, wakka?
When my sister saw N’s Mario birthday party, she mentioned wanting a Pacman one. Now normally we don’t accept requests, but she ‘is’ getting older and she does have an obsession with Pacman. Oh god does she ever. She’s constantly pointing out “oh my god, that looks like Pacman, waka, waka!” in her squealy girly voice. By now, we just groan every time she does it, but it did mean Pacman was quite suitable for her party.
We could’ve taken the easy road and just made a round cake, cut out a little pie slice, and added some yellow icing. Judging by the other birthday posts recently, though, does it really sound like something we’d do?
First, the entire Pacman board was drawn out in icing atop a double set of cake to fill a 9 x 13….half chocolate, half white.
Then a third was used for a small Pacman shaped cake done in yellow cake.
Give some fondant ghosts some eyes….
Wait, doesn’t that muffin liner Pacman at the bottom look out of place? Of course….because he’s missing all his blue ghost friends. Waka, waka.
Okay, so that’s not exactly the greatest angle of picture to see them at their ghostly best, but hey, you get the idea, lol.
Um, did I mention that the tiara flashed, too? Yeah, she regularly wears it to school, sigh. :P Here’s a quick video snippet of it. So quick you might have to play it 2 or 3 times before you pick up that that’s Pacman music in the background. ;)
The rest of the party included PacMan cups (no, this isn’t standard to stick things to the cups, but after N’s Mario cups, didn’t want this one to feel gypped :P), ghost balloons (although, not the exact colors, hehe), and homemade pizza rolls that were gone in a matter of minutes. I’ll do a separate post for those.

Pacman was my favorite game growing up, and ya’ll definitely did it justice with the cake. So creative! Though the flashing tiara is my favorite part ;)
