Full disclosure: I don't bake cakes any more. The kids all prefer Leelee's anyway. Why bother.
But the decorating?
I try. I really do.
Last year was my epic cake pop flop. And it looks like if you google cake pop flops, mine was so bad...it's on the first page of google search results. That means a heck of a lot of you
When Punky Brewster turned one...I attempted fondant. Marshmallow fondant. Homemade. Because I was actually still trying to be supermom.
Not horrible right?
Except it was so thick, my one year old couldn't even rip it apart.
When it comes to making a cake look pretty, I just need to forget it. Or stick to something like my Earthquake cake.
But no, I still try to don my mama super cape and make a fantastically decorated birthday cake.
B turned 12 and wanted a Minecraft themed party. At this age, it really just consisted of a group of friends over to play computer games and eat food.
Leelee started out with the cake...it's green velvet instead of red....
The hulk-like should have been a warning to just step away from the cake activities for the day.
This picture speaks for itself...
Leelee couldn't contain her laughter. She snapped a picture and texted it to a friend. Her friend was far nicer and said it was a very Van Gogh inspired.
Yeah...I think I'll go with that. My 12 year old wanted a Van Gogh inspired Creeper cake. Because he's so cultured...had nothing to do with my complete lack of talent.
