Show Us Your Cakes! (post #64745)

in

Wanna post photos of some of your best creations? With all the talent here, it would be nice to be able to have an all-occassion cake "scrapbook" to peruse for ideas. Easier to view than hunting through old threads since there is no 'image' search here (unless i am missing something).

I'll start. My recent R2D2 cake and molten planet cake for my son's 7th birthday this week.
also, an older pic of the cake i made my ex (then husband) for his first birthday since the birth of our son. I was still nursing then, which is the joke behind the concept. It's not x-rated, but be warned that there is chest-oidal imagery :-)

The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face.

One thing they never tell you about child raising is that for the rest of your life, at the drop of a hat, you are expected to know your child's name and how old he or she is.

Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.

-- Washington Irving

My latest and final Threadcakes entry. This has been a lot of fun. For this on I did some sugar work - for the first time. I really enjoyed it. I could get into that.

Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.

In life, learn the rules so that you know how to break them properly.

What can I say? Another amazing seems redundant, but that's what it is. Just stunning work.

Having spent too much time in the water and been concerned about those big fish, there's something awful creepy about that cake. As a kid? I would have loved it!! Great (albeit creepy) cake!

Biscuit's picture

ITA with you (G).  Especially when you cut into it - eh!  But as you said - we're not 8 year old boys, either.  Also - all the men thought it was awesome, too.


Guess what I did with the 2nd shark?  (lol)  Today happens to be Max's principal's birthday.  He's 65, I think.  So Max wanted HIM to have the second shark.  I took it off the cake and gave it to him this morning.  He laughed so hard at it, and thanked Max very much, said it was the best birthday surprise he'd had in years. (G).  I guess if you are an elementary school principal, and been an elementary age educator for as long as he's been, you develop a great sense of humor and tolerance for the disgusting-ness of little boys (G).


Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.

Amazing! Truly wonderful job on that cake. You rock - and I love Max's vivid imagination.
