Friday, It's Kelly's Korner

This week Kelly from Kelly's Korner is asking to see Birthday's
My son is a real big cake person. He loves cake. Not only does he love cake but he loves theme cakes. When he was three he was into Thomas the Tank Engine. I started a small tradition between him and I. I made a cake and tried to make it look like Thomas. I surprised him with it on his B-day. He flipped out when he saw it. Ever since then he has been requesting certain theme cakes. Three years in a row he has helped me put the finishing touches on them. I made the Thomas cake out of a Wilton 3-D cake pan.
This is his 3rd Birthday, Thomas the Tank Engine

The cake is covered in butter cream Icing. I put Oreo cookies on the cake for the wheels. I used Kit Kat candy for the train tracks. The gravel is Coco Crisp cereal. The palm trees are pretzel sticks with icing leaves.
This is his 4th birthday, Lightning Mc Queen
Since I could not find a Mack truck cake pan in 3-D, I decided to make do with what I had. I used the Train 3-D cake pan from last year. I used the back part of the engine and squared the top with butter cream icing. I happen to find a Wilton car cake pan and used butter cream icing to make it look like Lightning Mc Queen.

This is his 5th Birthday. This year it was all about Bob the Builder.
I went to Publix to see if they had any construction themed cakes that we could embellish. I found a cake with logs, a cut down tree and some yard tools. So the Cisco Kid said he wanted Bob the Builder, muck and the gang toys on the cake. The Chief found the perfect size toys in a B-day theme. I found chocolate candy that looked like rocks. We ordered the cake; brought it home and the Cisco Kid and I had a blast adding Bob the Builder B-day toys and all the rocks. This is his 6th Birthday
This year their are two themes in one. Scoobie Doo and Fireman. He was very specific about what he wanted.
Again, I went to Publix for the cake. They had a cake with a road on it and I asked them if they could add the burning building. I found Scooby Doo Fireman with flames and fire hydrant. As we were putting Scooby Doo on the cake, the Cisco Kid decided he wanted to have a truck on it , tipped over, in flames and Shaggy spraying it down with the hose. I put the pretzel sticks on it to make it look like logs.

There is something new to look forward to on Wednesday's, its, "What would your children say?" Wednesday
