Every year I ask my children what kind of cake they would like for their birthday. I enjoy making their birthday cakes. It is always fun to try and make a cake to match their request. I am by no means a professional cake decorator. This is simply for fun and to appeal to my children. Please don't submit my photos to Cake Wrecks. Remember these cakes were made out of love. Here are a few of the cakes I've made over the past few years...
One of his first words was "fish"
Western Birthday Party (I love missing front teeth!)
Tea Party (Don't look too close...I didn't want to make more frosting to fill in spots.)
He loves Krispy Kreme doughnuts and was eating one before he blew out the candles.
My daughter is 8 years old today and requested a guitar cake. Luckily, I found a template and video here. I loved this cake because there was only one cake to bake to construct the guitar. She requested "Funfetti" too (I like to make cakes from scratch.)
Position template on the cake
Cut and piece together
Give it a crumb-coat with frosting
Decorate until you or your child is satisfied.
So this afternoon, we will be having a rock star party with girls singing and dancing and eating this guitar cake made with love. I wish I could keep her from getting older because I never want her to leave home. At least she says she is never leaving either (for now).
Happy Birthday Princess!
