Birthday Cakes

Birthday season is upon us, and both my kids will have their birthdays between now and early summer.  With all of the celebrating, comes new cake designs.  My son wants an Angry Birds’ themed cake and my daughter is leaning towards DC Super Hero Girls.  Each year, my kids and I design their cakes and then I try to create what they have dreamed up. I wanted to share some of the cakes we have created over the last several years.  If you happen to be looking for birthday cake ideas, I hope these send some inspiration your way.

All of the decorations were made of fondant and/or gum paste, and the icing is buttercream (made with butter, which makes it a little temperamental, but oh so good!).   I’ll be sharing my son’s in the next couple of weeks!

    They’re so beautiful and clever, Antonia, and how fun to design them together with your kids. I think we had just connected last year when the Star Wars cake was unveiled! Can’t wait to see what’s coming this year. 😀 Happy Birthday season!
