Saturday was my birthday. My birthday cake is a big deal to me. It's not that I am conceited and want things to be all about me, because trust me, things are never all about me. But, as the person that buys all the food and prepares all the food, I guess having someone else make something JUST FOR ME is a pretty big thing. Also, seeing SHARA on something and not MOM or DEAR, is a plus. My Mom, God love her, always plans out a cake for me and orders it for me. It is always white cake with real buttercream frosting. I like pink - so there is usually pink.
Let's take a stroll back through time to visit the cakes of the past:
Then there was the year we decided green might be fun.
It was. Until the next day. IF you know what I'm saying. And, I know you DO!
Of course, we cannot forget the ONE year that The Breadman conspired with The Bean and decided that I needed a cupcake cake in the shape of a cute, happy monkey - maybe a little like Curious George. Sweet, cute and happy.
At least they got my name right?
Although that cake is super famous on Cakewrecks and has garnished me a lot of blog followers and a bit of "fame" per say. So, it was really one of my best cakes even though it was truly terrifying.
So, this year, I decided I wanted a plain white Coconut Cake. Not plain - triple layer with coconut buttercream and coconut custard in between the layers. Oh My Lanta - it was gooooooood. But, since it came pre-made, it couldn't be decorated. Luckily, SOMEONE had just purchased over 1,000 cake decorations that week. So, I plucked a few from the bag and placed them on the cake.
So, now it is with great delight, I present to you......Shara's 2015 Birthday Cake.
One big ass Ballerina, a boombox, a musical note, Charmander and two rifles. Oh, and a PINK "Happy Birthday" to keep it classy.
I really think the rifles made it.
This concludes the Annual Cake Walk.
Thank you for coming.
