I am taking a break from my usual posting. My two grandsons, Michael 7 years old and Alex 1 year old are celebrating their bitrthdays this weekend. Last evening I watched my daughter decorate a birthday cake for her son and a birthday cake for her nephew. Alex is getting an elephant cake and Michael is getting the monster cake. I think that these two cakes turned out very well. My daughter usually doesn't decorate cakes and she says that it is not her forte and that she would not decorate cakes on a full time basis. But, I think that she did an excellant job on these birthday cakes.
One-eyed purple people eater
My daughter made these cakes that are pictured above. The one-eyed purple people eater cake was inspired from Hero Arts Monster Fun stamp set CL391. She stamped the image of the one eyed monster on scratch paper and then enlarged it and used the enlargement as a pattern. She traced the pattern on the frosted cake and filled in the area with different color frosting. The elephant cake was baked in a Wilton cake pan and various tips were used to decorate the different parts of the elephand. These cakes turned out very well and they are too cute to cut into.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Have a wonderful week end.
