If a little time-traveling fairy visited me 10 years ago to tell me that in the future I would have three children and would willingly spend a whole day baking and decorating a birthday cake for them, I would have laughedat the fairy.
Then I would have asked it to give me the lotto numbers. Except I wouldn’t because I don’t believe that fairies can time travel.
But in this case the hypothetical fairy would have been right.
And, it started with the train cake that I made when my eldest child turned two. Slightly ambitious considering it was the second cake I’d decorated in my life. But he LOVED it!
Here is the first … less ambitious, but not a bad effort for a first-timer.
And when my second-born turned one 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, my son 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 …
My most recent effort was this unicorn cake for my now-6YO!
And for her 7th birthday she picked out a very easy Candy Land cake, which she actually helped me decorate.
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.
