I realized last night as I was posting what seemed like a gazillion photos to Flickr (with still many more to go from two other cameras!) I realized that I never posted about Miss A's birthday cake. What?!?!? Seriously, we are about a month and a half out from her birthday. Where does the time go?
I found this owl cake on Pinterest and immediately fell in love with it. I realized later I liked how "clean" it was which was created with fondant. However, I have never really worked with fondant nor did I think that it would be ideal for a cake that a freshly minted one-year-old would tear into. So, I opted to just adapt from there.
Is it worth spending so much time on my cakes just so the girls can destroy them? Totally. The videos of my girls tearing into their first cakes are so worth every minute. Plus, it's a fun little challenge. However, I think for Miss L's third birthday coming up we may be ordering a cake from the bakery as I will be not too long from my due date and wow... that sounds like a lot of work. We will see. Oh yes... one more picture... the cake after Miss A was done with it...
