My kiddos have all gotten older and the girls like making their own cakes for their birthdays now. The teen especially is a baker extraordinaire, and we’re never hurting for treats around here.
But sometimes I like to reminisce about cakes I’ve made for them over the years. I hope it’s OK to share here, with people who might understand my sentimentality over this, lol.
I’m no cake decorator, but I really enjoyed making these. Here they are, in no particular order.
Back to the Future cake for my son’s 9th birthday
“Sleepover” birthday cake for my oldest daughter’s 10th birthday. It was a daytime party, but she asked for a sleepover theme and told her friends to come in their pyjamas. I’d like us adults to take a page from her book and have all future parties in our pyjamas, please, lol. I’ve (poorly) removed her name from the bottom; it was written in fondant.
“Frozen cake” for my youngest daughter’s 4th birthday. Probably the easiest of the lot.
“Castle Cake” for my oldest’s 5th birthday. She helped quite a bit with this one and we had a lot of fun making it. This one we made from an idea in a library book. The others are my own creations.
Spiderman Cake for my son’s 5th birthday
Lego Brick cake for my oldest’s 10th birthday
Other Birthday Fun
I had fun for my oldest daughter’s 3rd birthday. I probably saw these on Pinterest at some point during that time; I know these ideas didn’t come from my head, lol
