I decided to open a cake decorating company!



So, yesterday was my darling son's 2nd birthday. I decided I wanted to make him a cute cake. I chose the double decker design, you know, 2 round cakes on top of each other with the frosting in the middle?!? I have done it once before and it was okay, so I thought surely my second go round would be better! Well, This is what the top layer ended up looking like! I tipped the top layer onto the bottom and it fell apart. I then thought "humm, I can probably 'glue' it back together with frosting!" BAD idea! I ended up with a big cake/frosting mess! I had to scrap it off the bottom piece, which was now polka dotted with cake instead of being smooth white!
But, all in all I guess it turned out okay! After all, he is only 2, he didn't know the difference!

Can't tell you how many times my cakes have turned out ugly! But yeah, the kids don't care at all! Looks like a fun little birthday.

Yeah, I've had my share of birthday cake mishaps too. I never wanted to go the store-bought route, but it's beginning to look attractive. Hope he had a fun day!
