My OLDER brother turned 40 this year. My siblings and I planned a Surprise Party for him with a Jimmy Buffett theme, it was "A Pirate Looks at 40." The menu was simple Cheeseburgers in Paradise, Fries, Pickles and Cold Draft Beer. The dessert was fun and fabulous.
We had seen the idea in many places, one of course being Bakerella. What we did was make cupcakes with brownies in the middle as the Cheeseburgers and sugar cookies as the Fries. They were easy and fun to make. Let me make one disclaimer, I was the assistant, my sister did 99% of the work and she as always does a fabulous job.

The Big Kahuna Himself. Happy Birthday Cliff!
The absolute best part of the party was the fact that we really did surprise him. That was a joint effort all around. My sister in law did a great job keeping a secret and getting him there on time. The other nice thing was all the guest had a great time and some even said it was the best Birthday Party they had been to.
