Birthday Cake Round-up

It's that time of the year again. Time to share the birthday cakes that I have made, and follow the links on Life As Mom to get inspiration for this year's cakes. I really enjoy making cakes for my kids. I have such fun coming up with the idea and executing on the theme. Normally, I know the theme well in advance, but this year seems to be an exception, the kids have had a few ideas, but I'm not sure that we have decided on a final theme for either one yet.

We had some good birthday themes this past year. My son chose Phineas and Ferb. I had a lot of fun recreating their images in fondant on top of a sheet cake. I think I did a pretty good job!

Phineas and Ferb Cake:

My daughter wanted a princess theme. Last year was Abby Caddaby and we did a Magic Wand cake, so this year for princess, we decided (by we, I mean I) to go with a Doll Cake. I found a "dressed" ballerina Barbie that allowed me to focus on the dress. I wrapped a bowl cake in a fondant and added some flowers to the skirt. Again, I got lots of happy smiles from my daughter, meaning this was a successful cake.

I've been trying to talk one of my 3 boys into a Phineas & Ferb party for the past year. Nice job!
I really love the light sabers.
