I also had to share this pic of my nephew and I with his bday hat from the restaurant! Not sure where he gets that silliness :)

My nephew asked me for a "hockey cake" for his bday cake. Side note that I LOVE to get to make cakes for my niece and nephews!!!!! Anyways he plays hockey and his jersey is a black hawks jersey so I looked on line for some pics. I found a REALLY cool Zamboni cake, but he wanted the cake to look like his jersey. I had to do some icing work, which is sometimes tricky for me, but it turned out pretty well. I knew when my younger brother kept looking and looking at it and asked how I did it, that it must have looked ok :)
I can NOT believe that my baby is turning 3! Seems so old :) She had asked me for and "April cake" every time I asked her what kind of cake she wanted mama to make. Every time I made a cake the month of her birthday she asked me if it was for her! I would say you need to tell me what kind of cake you want and she would say " I already told you, I want and April cake". I never did find out what an "April cake" looks like, but we went with a giant cupcake and smaller "3" cupcakes.......I loved it, and she thought it was really neat too :)
This cake was actually a referral from a friend, I had never met the woman. I talked to her on the phone, and over text and then dropped off the cake at her work, and never actually saw her face to face.......not even 100% sure I got her name right. So it is sort of like a mystery. It was a request for her little guy who was turning three, and his theme was MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE. I am a mom so one would think I know what this is, but I didn't. Another time that I am sooooooo thankful for the internet :)
I LOVE getting to do first bday cakes! I just remember those days with my girls and how much fun they were. This layered cake had a regular sized cupcake on top for the birthday girl!
I had a request for a dog cake..........the shape isn't the best ever but I love the pink floppy ears and the dog bowl with food (aka kix cereal).
