Getting my crafting/artistic mojo back since having Eldest has taken a long time. I'm still not sure it's back to normal. If you asked me ten months ago, I would have told you I wasn't working on anything. When I reviewed our pictures a few weeks ago, I realised that I have actually been up to more than I'd first thought. One of the things I have really struggled to keep up with are birthday cakes for each boy though I have missed a couple of years. Cakes are creative, right? Here are a few of the cakes I have made over the past couple of years:
I made this cake for the daughter of a friend of mine. Her birthday invitations were princess themed and she's a girl. Those were my only instructions. Do you know how nice it was to mix up PINK icing???
For Youngest's first birthday, I overdid it and made two cakes. The first (which highlights a vintage train candle holder from DH's childhood) was in the shape of a drum and the second larger one was the shape of a number one which we brought to a playgroup we attend twice a week.
Eldest and Middlest's 2nd and 3rd birthday cakes were store bought. I finally got it together for the following two years:
|I forgot to take a picture of the cake until we'd cut into it! Trust me, it was a very cute dinosaur.|
When Eldest started Kindergarten last year, I decided to make a few treats for his class.
|Valentine's Day party cake.|
|No, not cake but I did decorate them for Halloween this past fall.|
|Too cute not to share;)!|
|Kindergareten Graduation cake.|
|Oops. Didn't get a shot with the Spiderman candle on top. My bad.|
