I have a 16 year old. Crazy. Our daughter, that we are in the process of adopting, turned 16 this last weekend and we celebrated with a superhero birthday party, complete with a murder mystery, super villains and lots of fun. The theme of the murder mystery was a super hero convention where a super villain showed up, only to be found dead on the rooftop. Here are some pictures of some of the shady suspects.
Wonder Woman and Superman
Cat Woman, Intrigue, and the Masked Bandit
Rex Ruthless and Cat Woman
The Winged Defender and Crowned Prosecutor
Blizzard Stone and Felinity
Poison Ivy and the Boles Spider
I also wanted to share pictures of the birthday cake I made for her. I told her she could pick any cake on Pinterest and I’d make it for her. She picked this one from The Cake Blog, and I was excited to make it for her.
She is gluten free so I used this vanilla cupcake recipe from Sarah Bakes Gluten Free to make the cake layers, then I layered them with coffee butter cream frosting. It was delicious!!!
It was a really fun party, and it turned out that our Gabriella was the killer! The night was filled with fun, laughter, prayers and blessings for our Gabriella, I’m sure it’s a party she will never forget.
