Everyone who knows me, knows I love to celebrate my birthday. This can be a challenge for my dearest husband Jared. But he usually fares well since I just tell him what I want to do every year! :p
Since I love my birthday, I want my family to love theirs. The best way I can help them have a great birthday, is to make them a cake with “LOOOOOVE” in it! Some years are more successful than others but I thought I’d share some of the past years’ Celebration Cakes with all of you……
Dig in!!! 🙂
This was Walker’s 1st birthday. His nursery was decorated in Bumble Bees …… so that’s where I got my inspiration for his cake. Not too bad for my first “theme” cake. But I definitely could improve.
This was Walker’s baptism cake. The focus of this cake was more about the taste than the look. He LOVES blueberries so I had to create a blueberry cake for him. I thought it was going to be gross….but it actually was pretty darn tasty. Everyone complimented on how good it was, so I was thrilled it turned out well. It’s always a bit scary trying a new recipe on your guests!!!!
Eli’s nursery was decorated in giraffes. So for his 1st birthday I did this Carousel Cake. I love how excited he looks in the background …waiting for his slice!
Eli’s 2nd birthday cake. Old McDonald Had a Farm! (sing it with me) EEEII, EEII, OOOOO! (Or in this case…. EEEli, EEli, OOO! ) This was a fun one to make. I felt like I was back in elementary school creating a diorama or something. I love the little rabbit on the side of the barn chillin out, and the pigs in their mud pit!
Not every year is a winner with a full blown cake. Life happens ya know…. This was Eli’s 3rd birthday. Simple and sweet “Strawberry” (his favorite flavor) cupcakes! MMMMM!!
This was Alayna’s 1st birthday cake. Her nursery was decorated in Sunbonnet Sue, but her baby shower cake was done with her on it, so I took the liberty of using one of my favorite characters for her cake. Tinkerbell!!!!
This was the most recent cake I’ve made for my Mom’s 59th birthday. It was a German Chocolate cake. It was pretty and tasty. I think I’m coming along very nicely!
