Wanna - Be Cake Maker

Do you want to know a little secret about me?

I am a wanna be cake maker. For real.

I love making my kids fun cakes on their birthdays. I have made everything from a stegosaurus to a pink bunny and pretty much everything in between, I have even been known to make a naughty cake or two (not for my kids birthdays though)!

So I thought it would be fun to show you guys my very very basic cake making skills by featuring one of my cakes here and there. Yes? Yes!

Remember last week when I told you that I got to make my nephews cake for his first birthday? Well, here it is!



I had so much fun doing this one and thought it turned out pretty good, despite the fact that I didn’t have my usual supplies and it was basically melting in the Las Vegas heat (that’s why it looks so shiny).



Are you wondering why a one year old needs seven candles? My other nephew was turning seven later on that week so we turned it into sort of a double party on a whim. I think he was ok with that!



And of coarse every one year old needs their very own cake to smash, right?




He hated it, wanted nothing to do with it, and I’m pretty sure he didn’t even taste it!

I forgive you buddy!



My little G is turning six in a few weeks and has requested a Ninjago cake. Ummm … ok. Any suggestions? I’ll be sure to keep you updated with what I come up with, but in the mean time I’ve got a Super Mario Brothers star cake to show ya soon! (Easiest cake I have EVER made!)


  1. I always love your cakes! Ty's army tank turned out great BTW! Can a Super Mario Brothers cake really be easier than the tank? I can't wait to see it!

  2. aww Easton's are beyond amazing, and I don't think you are a wanna-be cake maker, you ARE a cake maker, sheesh!

    1. Haha ... I look at all of the AMAZING cakes out there that I would love to be able to do. Maybe one day! Until then, I am a wanna be ;)
