3 Siblings’ Cakes

I have another friend who has been a very supportive and encouraging my cake decorating and I am very lucky that she has 3 children… well actually just before Christmas it became 4 beautiful children! So this post is about the 3 cakes I got to make for them in 2013!

Her son and middle daughter are both born in July and they had a joint birthday party this year. I can’t remember how the themes of these cakes were decided. This is part of the reason why I keep a blog, so I don’t forget, but I guess I missed the boat this time! I think Chayse was having a Toy Story themed party (I recall Buzz Lightyear on the party invite) and I think Alyssa as getting Barbie toys for her birthday. I said how I had made a Buzz Lightyear before and had really wanted to make a small green alien because it is so cute! The clawwwwwwwww! So my friend said to why not make a green alien cake for Chayse! Yay! And I think the Barbie car for Alyssa was my idea – it was the only Barbie thing I could think of!

I was a little scared about making the alien cake. Would I be able to get him to stand? How would I do his arms? How would I do his ears? And how would I get his antenna to stand up?! I made three chocolate cakes the same size and rounded the tops of them with a knife. With two of the cakes I put the flat side together and that was his body! To ensure the cakes balanced I put a ring of fondant around the base to make it more stable. It seemed to work!

I was sneaky and put my iPad on my recipe holder so I could check out the green alien to make sure I didn’t miss anything! I was pretty happy with how he turned out. I hope you like him.

I had some fun with the Barbie car – it was a pink vanilla cake with purple swirls!Michelle's Labyrinth

I love the colour of the pink once it was cooked! And I believe a few girls at the party quite liked it too!

I bought a half Barbie from the cake store (yep she has no legs!), I had originally thought of making a Barbie/lady but with making the alien cake and also a few others around that time I knew it would be too much for me. Measuring, shaping the cake was interesting! I kept placing the Barbie in the car to see if it looked okay. The car isn’t perfect and I got a bit upset at the windscreen, but it was pretty late and I didn’t think I had enough time to make another windscreen – one that would stay upright.

So here’s Barbie driving off into the distance :)Michelle's Labyrinth

The eldest daughter’s birthday is just after Christmas, but because baby number 4 was due just before Christmas her party was held in November. So at the end of November I got to make an owl cake! I love owls! I have actually made another owl cake that I haven’t blogged about yet, however Emily has seen this owl cake and when she did she very excitedly said that was the cake she wanted! I was happy with that!Michelle's Labyrinth

I had such fun making this cake! Played with lots of colours. No measuring. All free hand :) I hope you like it – from all angles! Well I wanted you to see all the flowers and the tree!

Emily said she really likedMichelle's Labyrinth it, which is the main thing. It is also always lovely getting big hugs when they see the cakes!

I almost forgot what colours I made the cake in, but thankfully my friend sent me a post-cut photo! I love how the cake colours turn out. So bright! I don’t know why I am surprised they come out so well, I guess I cannot comprehend how the baking doesn’t affect the colour. Oh well, I am just glad they come out and I can add that specialness to my cakes!! Until next time, I hope you having a hoot of a week!Michelle's Labyrinth
