So I know you haven't been able to sleep at nights for wondering what kinds of birthday cakes I have made over the years . . . well (drum roll, please), wait no longer! Tee hee. Actually, there is a real reason I am showing you my many efforts at birthday-cake-making:
Cake-making doesn't have to be perfect. (Are you seeing a theme in this blog, yet?) Children love their birthday cakes and they'll love that you made it for them. They don't know what cake ideas have been posted on Pintrest. They just know you made a yummy, sugary, frosted, and decorated dessert just for their special day.
I think sometimes we think that if we can't do it like Cake Boss, then we shouldn't even make a cake at all. Just because you can't do something like a professional, doesn't mean you can't do it. Basically, I am saying, DON'T BE AFRAID TO TRY.

I remember that I loved watching my mother make my cake each year, knowing it was being created all because of me. So I wanted to pass that on. I've never taken a cake-decorating class. I only own a few baking and decorating tools. I have no special frosting recipe. But every year, my kidlets look forward to helping me plan their special cake.
So here they are. Like 'em or not. I can take it. (And I'll even understand if some of these pictures end up on Cake Wrecks--lol!) But no matter what I hope this makes you want to do something fun with your child and learn something new and DON'T BE AFRAID TO TRY.

Some years when I don't have a lot of time, I let the kidlets decorate their very own cake. Here's a few results. They love it and they are so proud.
