The pictures in my photo albums and on the assorted USB sticks mark off the years in birthday cakes and hand made Halloween costumes. As life gets insanely busy we sometimes don't have the opportunity to snap pictures of everyday events but we always have time to commemorate special kid days. I have made cakes shaped like Transformers, waterfalls, airplanes, Blue's Clues, construction sites, hockey rinks and even the occasional topsy turvey creation over the years with a great deal of love and varying degrees of success.For those who wonder...his cake this year will be an old fashioned galleon caught is a raging wave filled storm. Picking cakes with a great deal of icing (the waves!) has become a well honed skill of my son's over the years! I have enjoyed making every cake and want to say to my oldest baby, Mackenzie who turns 14 this year and is taller than my 5'9" that I hope his birthday is wonderful.
