Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

'Awesome-Cool' Birthday Cake

The babe LOVED his bday cake! Usually our Sweet Aunt Brenda makes Alex's birthday cakes but I decided to give it a try this year. She has two other sweet birthdays the same time as Alex's and she is in high demand! Rightfully so! I still could not have done this with out her though. She made the actual cake, SUPER YUMMY, and the home made icing.....SUPER DUPER YUMMY! No one needs to know what happened with the left over icing...
I carved the cake down and with the help from some dear friends, we layed fondant on top. Then I painted it with food coloring. The eyes and mouth are also fondant.

It was so much fun to make this special cake for my little man. He was soo excited to eat it, touch it, photograph it...he was ready to dig in!
Thank you so much Aunt Brenda, Julie & Ramonia for all of your help! Thank you for helping to make this memory even sweeter!
