Better Late Than Never

I still feel like I'm running on a hamster wheel here and in all my mental prepping for the rest of the week and weekend I've had birthday cakes on my mind. Blessedly, Harper did not request a cake that looks like anything other than a cake. We're going to try to make it a little funky with some food coloring and I'll be sure to take a picture - whether it is successful or not.

Anyhow, in thinking about Harper's cake I realized I never posted pictures of Michael's two-year-old cake. (Uh, yes, I'm talking about a cake I made in March.) I don't feel like I deserve too much credit because the design of the cake was really, REALLY simple. However, I was proud because of all the birthday cakes I've made this is the one where the final product most closely matched the vision I began with.

Ta da!



The cars were driving on a coffee-cake-topping road. And speaking of the cars, nothing says love like a cake topped with choking hazards - am I right?

You'll have to stayed tuned to see what I whip up for Harper this year.

Love it! Wondering if I can make it work for 3...or another 2 year old is coming eventually, too, I guess.

Glad I read yours first, Kelsey! I love the cake...it turned out great. I'll hold of on posting Aaron's cake pictures until next week:) Of course, your reader's don't read my blog, but I don't want you to think I can't think of my own posts! Good luck this weekend!

I am impressed! That is very, very cute!

I should have taken a college course called "How to Smoothly Spread Icing" but I didn't. And now I wish I had.
