Alexis's Mad Science Birthday Party

My baby girl is growing up so fast. It is hard to believe she is now 7 years old! Where has the time gone? 

This year Alexis had a special request for her birthday, she wanted a Mad Scientist Party!  My mom and I attempted to make the cake. We used a chocolate cake mix and we bought vanilla frosting and added food coloring for our decorating. This is definitely not a professional cake but it sure was fun.

Alexis wanted to help so she drew the atom and the test tube, she also added some gummy worms and a gummy eyeball. In the Erlenmeyer flask is cool whip that we dyed green and we made it overflow the flask to look like a toxic concoction.

We made a mad scientist by decorating 2 cupcakes. We based our idea from Tasty Kitchen's example.

Here is my real mad scientist having a grand time.

This is the brain we made from a Jello mold. We used orange jello and gummy worms to make a disgustingly mad looking brain. We also served cherry jello jigglers in petri dishes for snacks. I was so busy overseeing the experiments that I didn't get any pictures of  the best part of the party...

The Experiments
Blowing up a balloon with baking soda and vinegar.
Color Changing Milk
Making Slime
Mentos Geyser

Overall it was very successful and everybody had a great time!
