So my not so little boy has turned 8 this past week. Thanks to the help of friends on Facebook and Google+, suggestions were offered on the next theme of the birthday cake. I made a Sonic topper and cake last year so I needed a new challenge.
My boy decided on Skylanders which for those of us don’t have computer game addicted kids, is a new Wii or Playstation Game. It was a challenge to have “Zap” his favorite water Skylander raised off the ground on his four legs, but with patience (which I sometimes lack in abundance) Zap set hard and was able to be spray painted and turned out not too bad. I find there is always room for improvement.
Sam and his friends at the party were amazed that it was made out of fondant and was edible. It is always difficult when you are a cake decorator for you to create a cake for your children when they seem to have such high expectations – LOL. Nothing beats the look on their faces though when you can pull it off.
Happy birthday my 8yr old boy. Mum loves you to bits and I am so glad you ask for cakes and cake toppers that challenge me.
