Flashback Friday: Birthday Cakes

So, today's post is partly flashback, and partly current...
Last month, Bear's birthday was the 16th. That afternoon I developed a headache, and it turns out it was swine flu...the next day I was completely out, and the day after that Hubby developed it... There are only 6 days between Bear's birthday and Hubby's, and let's just say that Hubby's birthday got postponed a few days because we felt that lousey.
So I never posted the pictures from Bear's birthday.

I just love his face here...




And this is the flashback bit--sharing the birthday "sushi cake" I made for my hubby in 2008:



I baked the 'sushi roll' parts in tuna cans which I lined with foil--it gave a more even round shape than if I'd used a cupcake pan. I used coconut for the 'rice' on the sides of the rolls, and 'filled' them with chopped mandarin oranges and my mom's homemade blackberry jam. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I can't believe Bear is so big now! What a cute cake. Good job.

And tell your hubby, yes, I have been over-educated. A little Latin does come in handy with botany and etymology, though.

Your cakes are adorable! I'm always super impressed with your craftiness and skills. Hope you guys are all feeling better. Swine flu- ick!
