"J’s" Birthday Cake

First we have the cupcakes that “J” is going to take to school to share on Monday
She requested that they have the letter “J” on them and I added the dots. I think they turned out pretty cute 🙂

Here is a top view of her cake. It’s kind of fun and girly.
She is having a Hannah Montana party and these colors go along with the decorations.

Here you can see some of how I decorated the sides.

Simple and sweet.

As you can tell, I’m not a professional. I’ve never had decorating classes.

I’m just a mom making cakes and memories for her kids. 😉

My frugal tip comes because my daughter “J” is having her 8th birthday this Sunday.
Back when my first child was born, I bought birthday cakes from the bakery. Ouch! Then when my second child came along, I lost my mind and bought a special made cake for her first birthday from the expensive bakery here in town. Can you believe they charged me $10 just to make it chocolate instead of the standard yellow?
*
Well, I began making their cakes and I couldn’t believe how easy it can be!
I used a boxed cake mix that I pick up at Wal Mart for $0.88. You can also pick these up when they are on sale and you have a coupon and can pick them up for lots less.
*
I also make my own butter cream icing. All it is is powdered sugar, Crisco, butter and milk. You can find the recipe online.
*
I’ve never taken a cake class. I’d love to, but I just don’t have the time. I’ve learned as I’ve gone along.
*
Here is my most recent cake. I was for my son “A’s” 10th birthday in February
Would you like to see more of the birthday cakes?

The kids just love planning their frugal birthday cakes! It’s a big deal around here to pick out the design they want and have mom make the cake.

It’s frugal and it’s PRICELESS!!

“D’s” Cakes

Well, Mr. D has only had 1 birthday so far. He didn’t get to choose what it would be, mom did!

I also made a “Smash Cake” for him (you know, the ones the baby gets to smash into without yucking up the real cake LOL!)

In May he’ll be 2 and he’ll be having a Blue’s Clues cake. Of course I’ll post pictures.

I’ll be back tomorrow to post some of the pictures of the cakes I have done for other people….

(*note I am not a professional cake decorator. I have never taken decorating classes. These cakes aren’t perfect but they are made with lots of love 😉

“K’s” birthday cakes

Now we have “K’s” cakes. So far I’ve only done two for her.

First one for her was when she turned 3 and she wanted a “Hello Kitty” cake…

 

Last year she wanted a Barbie cake and she wanted her in a green dress…

 

She is requesting a Pokemon cake for her 5th birthday in June….We’ll see :0)

“A’s” Birthday Cakes

I mentioned in an earlier post that I would try and post pictures of the birthday cakes I have done. Tonight I’m posting the ones I have done for my son, “A”. I began doing this when he was turing 4 years old. He was into “Buzz Lightyear” at the time so here is his Buzz cake….

For birthday #5 we have Power Rangers…

Birthday #6 was Spiderman…

For birthday #7 he had a karate party. He had just earned his orange belt so of course his schools mascot “Hurri the Huricane” had to have an orange belt, too…

Birthday #8 was Yu-Gi-Oh. Don’t be too impressed with the topper….the design was a plastic cake topper but boy is it cool looking!

Birthday #9 The “Colts” had just won the Super Bowl and he is a big Peyton Manning fan. We had a simple version of a football cake…

This years cake…#10…. was Star Wars and I posted a picture ealier so I won’t re-do it here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my cakes. Tomorrow I’ll post the ones I did for my daugher, “J”.

Bye for now…
