I am a bad blogger. Anyone still out there?

I can't believe I last blogged on February 29th. That's terrible!
It's probably because there's really nothing been happening. When last we spoke we were a couple of months away from having the funds we needed. However, due to circumstances, we had to borrow from them and we're back to replenishing them. To say I'm not disappointed would be a lie, but it is what is is and we'll roll with it. I know that it will happen.

So in the mean time I give you cakes that I have worked on in the last 8 weeks.

I'm not sure I've ever mentioned it, but on of V's favourite foods is pancakes. His birthday is the our long weekendin May and we always have a big barbeque for the start of the summer BBQ season. So I made him a pancake cake for his birthday. I didn't get a picture of it cut, but it was a vanilla cake with a strawberry swiss meringue buttercream.

The following weekend we were celebrating my sister in law's birthday. She was having a big birthday in our nation's capital, so I had to make a cake that was going to be able to travel 4 hours. On top of that, we were in the midst of a heat wave and our a/c was out. Needless to say, this one was a challenge, but I'm thrilled with how it turned out. Seventies themed inside and out. :) This was a vanilla cake with vanilla-orange buttercream.

Next up was my cousin's son's Bar Mitzvah. All year long Evan had been telling me and everyone else I was making his cake. When the date was coming up, V, his mom and I decided that the best was an iPad cake since it was the one device he was hoping to get. The cake was a devils food cake with a chocolate buttercream.

After a weekend off, my nephew's son was turning 3 and he asked me to make his birthday cake. His son wanted a Hulk cake so this is what I came up with. His was a triple chocolate fudge cake with a vanilla buttercream.

And finally, my mother in law's birthday was last weekend. She had planned a large party and asked if I would make her cake. Since she had decided to have a prayer meeting to start, V suggested a book cake so I wrote her favourite psalm on it. This is a vanilla cake and a vanilla buttercream.

I wondered where you'd disappeared to! I even clicked over here within the last week to see if there was anything that I'd missed recently.

I continue to be amazed at your cake prowess. I showed the pancake cake to Jordan (pancakes are only second to waffles in his eyes), and I had to hold him back from licking the screen.

I've been meaning to post something for the last while. I wasn't sure what there was to tell anyone except for the cakes.

And thanks! I think the Pancake cake is by far my best work today, and my favourite. And super easy too! You tell Jordan that when he can convince his parents to bring him and his brother and sisters for a visit, I will make him that cake. :) hehehe. Tag. Your it! :)

That should have been "to date". Oh, and I liked doing the tie dye cake too.

I want to come visit and get a pancake cake! Or have you come visit me and make cakes with Al. Yay cake.
That stinks about the money. I hope it gets replenished quickly!

Pam said...


You and A can come visit anytime! And I will make you a pancake cake :)

Your cakes are AMAZING. We don't often celebrate in a big way, but I know you don't live too far from me ; ) & if I am ever in need of something special, I will know who to call!
