So, for Micah's birthday I decided to use the small pyrex bowls again to get a round cake and make some baseballs. I had made Greg a baseball cake one year for one of his surprise parties but it was just a round layer cake. I think using the round pyrex bowls the ball shape was much better. Micah loved ripping into this cake and it made me so happy to see him enjoy it! I hope I get to experiement with some more fun cakes in the future! Let's not get too crazy though!
So, when it comes to birthdays, naturally, I want to do it myself. I wonder why I keep hearing that phrase from my two year old....anyway, I have a great time searching the internet for ideas and tutorials and then I figure out how to make it happen. I made Naomi's birthday cake for her second birthday in October and it turned out pretty good. I couldn't think of how else to do Mickey Mouse (her current obsession) until I saw this tutorial and it just clicked and this is how mine turned out. Not bad for my first attempt and not having the correct pans!
