I haven’t updated cakes in a while and we have a lot of birthdays around here! Oddly enough, the search term I get the most on this blog is “Diesel 10 cake.” Who knew Diesel 10 is still popular?! Well, there aren’t any trains in these cakes, but here you go…
First is Matilda’s 5th birthday cake. Mo Willems is huge in this house. We just can’t get enough of the Pigeon, Knuffle Bunny and the rest of the gang. So I thought it would be fun to make and Elephant and Piggie cake with the Pigeon making an appearance of course! I simply made a sheet cake then “drew” the picture on the white icing with a butter knife. I then colored it in using various icing tips.
Next up is Grover. Grover is Matthew’s absolute favorite! The look on Matthew’s face was priceless when he saw this Grover cake. This has to be one of the easiest cakes I’ve made so far with the exception of Hello Kitty cake. The kids don’t even ask for gifts for their birthdays anymore…they just ask for cakes! Win!
This isn’t a cake, but since we’re doing birthdays around here, our Athena just turned 1. She weighs in at over 100lbs, but as you can see, she still thinks she’s a tiny puppy. This was her pounce ready stance as she was trying to attack the water coming from the hose.
