My Mom always used to make fun cakes for our birthdays. I was so excited to continue the tradition and design and make special cakes for our little ones!
Last year was sports... My first big, intricate cake! I was excited about the grass border around the top and the tufts of grass in the outfield too, ha! The baseball is a cake too! - we lifted it off to be his cake=)!
This year was music! He LOVES everything music. It is so sweet! My first tier and fondant (and funfetti) cake!!! I made the violin, bow, and colored notes out of fondant too!
Close ups of the violin, bow, back, and the cake=) Click on a pic to enlarge.
He LOVES playing his violin, his little piano, and Uncle Paul's old guitar. He LOVES watching and asks all the time for the arts channel - the conductors, orchestras, solos pieces, opera, and dancing. He LOVES singing Je sus Loves Us, ABCs, Tawinkle Tawinkle=), Row Row Row, This Little Light, Scale with solfege Do re mi..., Old McDonald, The B.I.B.L.E, Happy Birthday song, I know I'm forgetting some=)! He LOVES conducting or playing the piano or strumming the guitar and singing at the same time time, it is so cute! He LOVES listening to orchestra music in the car (he asks whenever we have anything else on=)).
Oh and the music on the staff on the top of the cake is Je sus Loves Me=) since it's one of his favorite songs to sing! Can't wait to post the rest of the party pics! We had a great time and my Mom again was incredible again in helping! We were up until after 3am on Sat getting ready, she (and Hubby) was doing food & decorations and I was doing the cake. It cracks me up because we've all done several big parties in the past couple months and we stay up so late that we get sooo giddy, making jokes, acting goofy, and just cracking up and having so much fun together. But my Mom and Hubby have said no more big parties for a while=)! ha!
