Awesome kids birthday cakes from Bub Hubbers

If a little time-traveling fairy visited me three years ago to tell me that by 2012 I’d have two children and would spend a whole day baking and decorating a train cake for one of their birthdays I would have laughed at the fairy then I would ask it to give me some lotto numbers. Except I wouldn’t because I don’t believe that fairies can time travel.

But it this case the hypothetical fairy would have been right. I do have two kids – affectionately called The Toddler and The Baby (for reasons that I don’t think need explaining) and when The Toddler turned two I made him this train cake.

I know right …? That was the second cake I’d decorated in my life.

Here is the first … less ambitious, but not a bad effort for a first-timer.

And when The Baby turned one recently I couldn’t repeat the Number 1 cake, so I opted for the delicious (and pretty simple) Kit-Kat Cake – with M&Ms on top! Yummo!

And then, The Todder turned 3! I was sure I’d peaked too early with the train cake so I wasn’t too worried about what the next cake would be like. I asked him what cake he wanted and he took less than a second to request “A ROCKET SHIP CAKE!”.

So here it is too …

So surprised was I by the end result I posted the pictures on the Bub Hub forum and Bub Hub Facebook page. And then heaps of very talented Bub Hub members shared their children’s birthday cake masterpieces as well.
