Before we begin the TT, I have to announce the winners of my Birthday Blog Bash contest! There were three categories, so three winners. Can I get a drumroll, please…
Yay! Congratulations, winners, and please either leave prize choices in the comments on send them to me by e-mail. (I will be sending e-mails off as soon as I’m done posting this.) Everyone, please stop by and congratulate them!
Thursday Thirteen: 13 Favorite Birthday Cakes
1. the traditional doll cake (doll upper half, cake lower half, dress made out of frosting)
2. a fish tank cake we made for my niece (no pictures on this computer, sorry)
3. a 3-D lamb cake (not officially a birthday cake mold, but we used it as one)
5. a castle-shaped bundt cake – awesome shape, but hard to cut and harder to clean the pan!
6. or a forest shaped bundt cake – ditto the castle, though ever so slightly easier to clean
7. I think I had a panda-bear cake when I was little. I probably thought it was cool at the time. Now, I’m not so sure I’d want to cut something shaped like a cute animal. (This goes for the lamb cake above, but that one wasn’t my cake, so I didn’t have to cut it.)
9. Star Wars cakes. There are many variations, and they’re all fun.
10. a D&D diorama cake. This was made for one of our gaming friends, and our little miniatures were arranged in combat with a dragon or something on top. It was pretty cool, though I only saw pictures.
11. a cake made out of cardboard that said gaming friend (above) hid in and jumped out of for kicks to surprise my BIL-once-removed (as in my BIL’s brother). It was tres amusing. Not very tasty, though.
13. and the last mention for favorite cakes may seem boring, but it’s really my favorite: yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Period. It may not look like much but it’s oh so yummy.
