I bought a car - turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew?

HURRAH! I can finally post my latest cakes. The party is over, the presents opened and the cake is being digested!

Aaron and Curtis both have birthdays in January so we starting pairing the two together for a joint party. Such good sports, if they were 20 years younger they would probably be throwing fits! This year I made a double cake, each had their own half. I was lazy and made a simple King Sized Chocolate Cake. (I am begging everyone, if you have an amazing chocolate cake that comes out of the baking pan, puh-lease share!!!!) So the cake itself wasn't anything amazing, but I am loving working with fondant. Caitlyn has requested a Handy Manny cake for her 5th birthday....talk about challenge. Curtis - bless him - in convinced I can do it....pisha! I think if I add his amazing artistic skills to my meager ones we may be able to come up with something! We shall see!


On with the show!

This little beauty was a wonder for fondant....my new best friend in cake decorating!



Caitlyn always, always goes for my couplers when the cake boxes come out. She play Alex from Madagascar for the rest of the day! I am not sure what this face is....but when I try and take pictures of her for whatever reason she looks away from the camera....!!?? Christmas pictures with Kamee were hilarious!!



Something I hate about decorating with fondant and those oober concentrated colors.

Transformers...more than meets the eyes
Transformers...they have metal thighs



{ Aaron's Side }

"Germany had declared war on the Jones boys"




Caitlyn put the legos together for me and then did a wonderful Broadway Musical of Indiana Jones. The songs she was singing were so funny! I wish I recorded them. One went something like this....

*cough cough*
Indiana Jones is saving his daaaaaaaad so they can go on an adventure to saaaaaave the day!



P.S. The cake tasted amazing and Mae even ate the fondant!

Why Little Suzy Needs Therapy!


"Mo-ooom! Have you seen Giselle?"
"Suzy, what did I tell you about leaving your dolls lying around?"
"I don't know."
"You don't know? So you're telling me you don't remember any of the HUNDRED times I've warned you about leaving your toys strewn around the house?"
"No."
"So you don't remember what I said yesterday? About what would happen if I found your doll on the floor one more time?"
"Ummmm... Maybe you said something..."

[silence]

[whining] "But I want my dolly! You HAVE to give her BACK!"
"Oh, don't you worry, honey. I'm sure she'll turn up after dinner."
