I just went through pictures of all of the birthday cakes I've done and I've found all the ones that I liked enough to display here, so here they are - broken into five posts.
So with that rambling preamble, here is part 1.
Noah's 3rd birthday, 2003 - he was so funny and requested this one very specifically. When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, he said he wanted chocolate with blue circles all over it, with a big yellow circle. I think it turned out pretty cute!
My first character cake for Molly's 2nd birthday - Dora turned out a little sunburned-looking but oh well! I printed out a picture of her and kind of made a stencil. I couldn't draw that well free-hand. Most memorable part of that day was when Molly didn't understand about blowing out the candles and tried to grab them instead (while lit). Ouch! See, too much attention was given to the cake and not enough to instruct the birthday girl!
Thanks for indulging me in this walk down memory lane so far... stay tuned next time for four cakes made in 2005!
