Birthday Cake Parade

 Redwall Abbey Cake (from Brian Jacques' book series "Redwall")
 Banana muffins with homemade animal cracker tops for a 1st birthday
 Snake Cake (a timber rattler)
 The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake 
 Giraffe Cake (with toasted coconut)
 Garbage Truck Cake
Castle with graham cracker fortress walls
Dump Truck (modeled after a favorite Matchbox Car)

Not shown....the ladybug cupcakes, the pumpkin cupcakes, and this one strange cake that was supposed
to be a car but ended up looking like a bug.  
                 ......Bob the Builder, which was funny, i know, but it was such a hit with the boy!
                 ......a bull's eye cake with arrows & a Buzz Lightyear cake (both of which can be found in the archives of this blog)
                  ......the Scuba Diver Cake, which I apparently only took video of.  Who does that? :)
                 .....and the Millenium Falcon, which is my personal favorite because it looked so real.  If you are one of the grandma persons that attended that party and you have a picture of the Millenium Falcon (which would've been Nov. 2008) would you please make me a copy?  Pretty please with sugar on top?

Alright.  Now you know about my obsession with birthday cakes.  I hope you still like me.  Let me know, by leaving me a comment and telling me which one you like the best and feel free to leave a link to some pictures of any cool cakes that you've made.  And don't forget to go back and look at the previous blog post to see Hen's Train Cake from his party this weekend!
