Kaiden's Birthday Cake



It's not perfect, but I tried my best. :) I thought of making my lil one a cake for his 1st birthday to make it more special. I'm not a baker by profession, nor do I bake often. I got this idea from a site called easy birthday cakes. I made my own version by using a light blue color, and by frosting it with whipped cream mixture. As you can see, I put a collage of Kaiden's photos at the center, laminated it first before placing it on top of the cake, shaped as number 1. Since it was my first time to make a cake as big as this, and for this special occasion, I admit, I was worried it won't look or taste as I wanted it to be. The whipped cream frosting was kind of a challenge. It tends to get too soft and melts up quick if it's left outside for a long time. Despite that, I still used it as frosting because it's easy to make and because it tastes good. The sea animal decors were from Betty Crocker which I bought from Price Chopper. It suited the blue color frosting which looked like a body of water. Like I said, it wasn't perfect, but I tried my best. And, it was edible. lol! :)

oh wow! this is impressive for someone who do not bake often. I wonder if I can pull it off myself. I'd be a nervous freak.

It's beautiful! What counts the most is the effort you put into it.
