I don’t CLAIM to be a great cake maker by any means. But I find it to be so much fun to plan and design these little cakes for my kids. It seems like the more challenging cake they ask for, the more fun it is to try to plan it out. I’ve made a racetrack, a lion, a train, Chick Hicks (from the movie Cars) – I seriously think that was my worst one…but my son loved it, and that’s all that mattered Smile). I’ve made a Hulk (that one I’m most proud of), a ladybug, a beehive with little bees, a sand pail filled with sand and seashells, and now a flamingo has been added to the list. She was sooo excited; it made it well worth it. (Plus we had cake coming out the wazoo!!)

So if anyone is interested how the cake turned out, here are a couple photos from my little girl’s birthday party. I can’t take credit for the photo of her; I had my brother take over the photography duties while I was playing the mom role.

There is a two year old among us now.  I can’t believe how big my little girl is getting!  Her party was just a small gathering, and the most important part of course – the CAKE!  She is a bee lover.  I don’t know why, she just loves them.  So of course, I had to make a little bee hive cake.  I know, it’s gimpy!  But she loved it.  I’m sure it doesn’t help that she has a little sweet tooth.  She tasted the cake, and then proceeded to play with the decorations.  First she had one bee, and then two, then three all lined up.  Then one kissed another bee, then the two bees kissed the cake, then she had to kiss all the bees.  It was hilarious!
