Cake, Cake, and More Cake!

As usual, I am running behind. I had wanted to post most of this weeks ago, but it just didn’t happen.

It is better late than never, right?

Well, I hope so, because here it goes…

We had a combined birthday party for my niece, Maggie, and for Ruthie, and Owen.
The party was the middle of last month.

Don’t judge me. I said I was running behind, remember?

Cake at a birthday party is a must, if you ask me anyway.

Our local library has cake pans that can be checked out in the same fashion as books. So, Owen and I, headed to the library to choose a cake design.

“There! That one. I want Superman!”

And that was fine with me. I had already used this cake pan back in November to create my nephew, Beau’s cake. While the cake pan includes several plastic faces and accessories, it did not include anything for Robin, which is what Beau had requested. So, I was forced to improvise, and create my own from icing.

If you get really bored later, you can check it out. That post was titled “Birthday Cakes for All”.

Luckily for me, however, there was a Superman face and breastplate included with the cake pan! Yippee! Suddenly my job became a whole lot easier!

Now, Maggie and Ruthie’s cake on the other hand was going to take a little more time and creativity.

Several weeks before the party, Ruthie, decided on a three tier cake.

She even went so far as to draw me pictures of the cake she wanted.

The end result was a happy girl…and a slightly slanted cake – don’t look to close.

I decorated the cake at home, but I needed to transport it to my brother’s house for the party. To help stabilize the cake, I used wooden dowels, which I covered in plastic wrap. I then inserted the dowels into all three layers of the cake. So, the flowers on top of the cake are serving a very important purpose. They are covering the holes where the dowels were placed.

I cheated a little and bought sugar accents. Practical and pretty – now we’re talking!

And it would appear, it was success! Three smiling faces celebrated their birthdays!

May the year to come bless, Maggie, Ruthie, and Owen!

Oh, but it doesn’t end there!

My dad celebrated a birthday too!

For his birthday, I wanted to make a cake that was half vanilla and half chocolate. And as luck would have it, I saw our babysitter do just that, several weeks ago. So, following her instructions, I gave it a try.

I started by preparing the vanilla cake. I then added the batter to the cake pan, which was slanted with the aid of a small can.

Once, I began to add the chocolate batter to the other side, I removed the can allowing the pan to lay flat. I had been assured the two batters would not intermingle. And guess what?

They didn’t!

This method created a fairly even split of vanilla and chocolate cake.

And more importantly, we were able to celebrate the birthday of a man we all love very much!

Certainly, the year to come will be full of many blessings for him as well!

Only At My House,

Jana
