She also had her own personal heart-shaped cake,
which she enjoyed digging in while yelling "cake!!!"
2nd Birthday: WonderPets Party
I made this cake at my parents' house. Lane was on a mission trip to China, and while he was gone Josie and I went to AL for one weekend. It really was a "wonder" that we finally got pics of this cake with all the pieces still on it! It was so hot and humid that day, the icing was literally melting off of the cake faster than I could get it on there! Poor Lenny, Tuck, and Ming Ming, too kept sliding off!
I'd rate this one as the most frustrating.
3rd Birthday: Tea Party
This was my first true "Cake Boss" type attempt and my first cake to make in my own kitchen! I stepped outside the "pan" and made the cake for the teapot and teacups from bowls. I also fancied up some of the icing by adding some chocolate raspberry coffee to the chocolate icing. This was also my first time to work with fondant, of which I was not a fan.
4th Birthday: Watermelon Party
I prayed over this cake the night before the party. I was so afraid I was going to get up party morning and find the watermelon "wedges" had split and fallen apart. God heard my pleas and although slouching,
the wedges held it together (and so did I!).
