Part 2: Perry the Platypus Costume tutorial- UPDATED!

Part 2: Perry the Platypus Costume tutorial- UPDATED!


The Boy is going as Mr. Freeze for halloween this year, but he’s wearing last year’s Perry the Platypus (Agent P!) costume to school on Friday. I started thinking about it, and decided it needed a bit of an update, so here is Perry, V 2.0! I decided it needed big Perry eyes, so I added 2 ping pong balls, colored with Sharpie marker. I also added a drawstring around the hoodie that I never got around to doing last year, so that it sits closer to his face.… [ KEEP READING ]

Perry the Platypus Mini-Cakes, made from Twinkies!

Perry the Platypus Mini-Cakes, made from Twinkies!

When I posted the Perry the Platypus (of Phineas and Ferb fame) cake from The Boy’s birthday party, reader Janelle asked for the How-To, so she could do her own for her daughter’s birthday party. Her ingenious idea was to use twinkies to make mini Perry cakes… and they came out wonderfully! She shared them on the Dabbled Facebook page, but I thought they were too awesome not to share here as well!… [ KEEP READING ]

I promised more on the food for the party – we did it as a brunch to try to beat the heat a little bit.  Since it’s food related, I’ve actually posted the writeup over at Foodwhirl: Menu for the birthday party brunch food.  So go check it out!

The menu included Deathstar Cantaloupe, Mr Slushie Dogs, Roast Bantha, and even Platypus Eggs!

(Thanks to the Evil Mad Scientists for the Deathstar Cantaloupe idea!)

Perry the Platypus Cake Tutorial: The Prep Work

Perry the Platypus Cake Tutorial: The Prep Work

[Part 2 is here]

I have a request for the tutorial to make the Perry the Platypus Cake, and since it’s needed in a hurry, I’m doing this tutorial in two parts.  By the way, I did a really detailed tutorial on last year’s dragon cake, and this year’s cake is actually similar, if a little simpler. So it wouldn’t be a bad idea to read through that tutorial in case I miss anything I covered there, as far as techniques.… [ KEEP READING ]
