Just when you thought that was it for cakes, there’s another cake! In fact, the emergence of this cake is what prompted me to finally post the pictures of the other cakes earlier this week, because I couldn’t bring myself to post them out of chronological order.
This cake was for Adrienne’s mom’s birthday as her folks were up in Seattle over the weekend. Happy Birthday!
I am a lazy bum. Mostly. That is why I am only just now posting pictures of the two cakes I made last month for the two Christmas celebrations (one for the student workers, one for the staff). The first cake was baked in the castle-shaped bundt pan we got for our wedding from our good friend, Adam. Read more…
I think we called it Mr. Gobble Cake, but I don’t recall for certain. Adrienne sketched a turkey for me, which I used as the basis for decorating the cake. Unfortunately, everyone ate so much “real food” and the other desserts present were much more enticing, so no one had much cake. But everyone thought it was neat, and felt bad cutting it up to eat it (another reason they didn’t eat much). And yes, those are M&Ms for eyes!
Reason #38 that we are nerds:
Josh has extreme cake decorating skillz. He has, however, not been able to make use of them for awhile. But several important events happend in the last two weeks. One was our friend Alisha’s birthday, and the other was the last episode of our favorite TV show, Stargate SG-1. To celebrate both of these special occasions, we made a cake. And not just any cake. This is a full-on nerd cake. It’s a Stargate Cake! Officially christened the Torte of the Ancestors, and covered in a lovely Chappa’aicing, proof of its awesomeness is in the pictures below.
