A Weekend of Cake

It has been a busy weekend. My son Adam had a birthday and so did one of my neighbors. I made both cakes. It was good to be baking again. It has been a long time. There were some...complications...along the way. I don't know if it was my cake recipe or the 24 hours of rain that affected things, but it all came out well in the end.
Friday--Adam's cake (the race car) is finished. The duck's were made as well as the pond.
Look how cute the little duckie is!
By 9pm he had lost his head! Oh, no!
Saturday--Duckie #2 is on the pond and duckie #3 is cooling.
My hands just couldn't take a fourth star job, so the toddlers cake is just "fluffy"
Close up of Adam's car. I made chocolate butter-cream for the black. Starting with chocolate made it easier to get a true black for the tires.

One more cake adventures coming up on Monday.
