My boys both have birthdays in June within 8 days of each other. While we have always combined their parties into one, I do make each boy his own cake. The rule for birthday cakes is that I have to be able to find a cake pan for whatever they're wanting. We have had a fire engine, Lightning McQueen, a puppy, a pirate ship, an octopus (!), a guitar, and a Darth Vader head. This year Daniel rather randomly chose Bugs Bunny (he's not a big Loony Tunes watcher) and Nathan chose a golf bag because he's going to golf camp this summer and is excited about it.
I know Bugs is suppose to be light gray. It was late when I was mixing the frosting with the gel food coloring and I accidentally put in too much. I thought it would lighten up when it set but nope. Nobody cared. My star frosting tip got bent out of shape by the time I got to the insides of the ears so they look rather messy close up. Nobody cared about that either.
I had to run to the cake supply store the morning of the party to get a new tip and my sister kindly helped me finish frosting this one as our other few guests arrived. Nathan turned nine and Daniel turned seven. They were both excited about their cakes even though Nathan looks rather annoyed in the picture below. He's my introvert and doesn't much care for the spotlight and being sung to. Daniel's face is priceless. He loves me so much.
