Flashback Craft: Specialty Cakes

I thought it would be fun to make a post once in a while about crafts or projects I have done pre-blog. So enjoy!

When I took these pictures, I had no idea I would one day be sharing them on a blog.  These are just quick snapshots. So bear with me on the image quality. ;)

 

I don’t often bake, but when I do, I like to put a lot of effort into it.  One of those times would be when I make cakes!  I enjoy making specialty cakes, but it takes so much planning, time, and patience.  I usually limit specialty cakes to my kids’ birthdays.

This turtle cake is the FIRST ever specialty cake I have EVER made.  It was my first time using fondant, and I had no idea what I was getting into.  I am so proud of how this cake turned out, and of all the cakes I’ve made it is still my favorite. :)  This was for M’s first birthday. Even the inside was green!turtlecake

 

For M’s second birthday, I got way too complicated.  Looking back, I wish I had just made the car.  I don’t really care for the rest of the cake so much. I had this idea of the number 2 being the trunk of a tree in front of a hill with a road on top of it and a car on the road. Whew! That’s even complicated just to say. What a mouth full!

I took these pictures before it was done, which is why you see some wet spots, but you get the idea.

Isn’t this car cute?  I love the little button wheels.

I’m sad to say that L got a little ripped off on his birthdays.  For his first birthday I made these fondant covered cupcakes instead of a whole cake.  I never got around to making a cake for his second birthday. It’s next to a holiday, and we had some unfortunate events happen during that time, so it never happened.  I hope to make it up to him for the next one!

These were the best pictures I could dig up.  I’ve made a few others including a Blue’s Clues cake that M constantly talks about almost a year later!

What do you think?  Would you like more Flashback Craft posts in the future?
