40th Birthday Toilet Cake

September is our busy month for birthdays. We have seven in our family. My dear husband Keith's birthday was last week (Sept. 9th). He turned 40 (total old man)! Anyway, the kids and I threw him a surprise party. It stayed a surprise till that morning, when sweet Sophia thought that because daddy opened his gift, it was okay to talk about what time everyone was coming over. I just looked at him and he gave me a big grin. "Surprise!" You're getting a surprise party.

It was a great time and he loved his cake! Which he had no clue I was making. Yes, total gross factor, but so my husbands humor. All the kids could not stop talking about the potty cake.  I on the other hand, am waiting for Sophia's pre-k teachers to pull me a side due to her telling everyone about her daddy's crap you're old cake.





My birthday is next. September 24th.  The big "30!" I'm not freaking too much....yet. :)

Do you have some tips of how you made this? did you use cake for the whole thing or rice krispie treats for any of it?

Hi. I tried to email you but the email was returned. I would love any helpful hints or suggestions for the cake. It is awesome! Did you just cut out a circle in a round cake or use some kind of bundt pan? I just love it.

Hi Jane, not sure why I did not get the email from you, I will look into it. I used two round cakes and shaped them in to an oval and cut out the center. The back is 2 square cakes cut in half and stacked four high. I added wood skewers for support. Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have more questions.

Thank you so much for commenting so quickly. It helped a bunch. I was happy with how the cake turned out and my family LOVED it. I posted a picture in this post: 40 Years of Fun

Thanks again!
