I am so darn glad the kids’ birthdays are over. I’ve baked and decorated 5 cakes in the last 4 weeks (Drew had 2 parties, one with family and one with friends). This year I went a different route with the cakes~no cake pans allowed. So Google was my friend for inspiration and the kids got the following cakes to celebrate their birthdays:
Drew’s theme was PIRATE of course. Thanks to Doug for decorating this!
The girls’ party was PRINCESS themed (not Disney) so I created crowns for them
Meg’s party was HEART themed. She helped decorate
So it was nothing extravagant this year. The cakes were relatively easy to make and decorate, I didn’t spend a ton of money or lose my mind with a thousand different frosting colors to tint. The cakes are all the same~homemade marble cake that is so delicious (thank you Better Homes and Gardens cookbook). Now I just have 10 more months to come up with the next cake idea.
