My daughter asked for a birthday party with an Egyptology theme this year--best theme ever, as far as this English and Anthropology major mama is concerned! We had so much fun creating the decor, an archaeological dig in the backyard, making paper, and so much more.
Chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream, marzipan pyramids, sugar cookies, dates, mummified oreos, buried peanut butter treasures.
