Birthday Cake Fun

A tradition in my house while I was growing up was to choose the kind of cake we got, not just the flavor but also the shape. I chose a clown cake, a people cake (shaped like the 'Little People' with 'Little People' around it), a roller skate cake, as well as many others. I always loved that tradition so I have decided to do it with my family. The first cake I got was an elephant cake and thus both Markie and James first year cakes are elephant cakes. Last year Markie wanted a basketball cake which turned out pretty cute. This year Mark wanted a soccer cake.

Both cakes were a lot of fun to make and it is interesting the love I feel for each child as I work on each cake. I really think about each child as I am designing their cake and I feel a special bond with them as I try to make their special day just a little bit more special with a fun cake. Thank you mom for always putting in the extra time to make my birthday special by making my birthday cake fun and unique.


  1. My mom used to make amazing cakes also. I remember the choo choo train and the Humpty Dumpty cake. Good memories.

  2. So very creative and fun. I haven't done anything like that yet but this year I'm thinking Elden might want a Spider-Man cake.
