Memory Lane Monday

Today's memory is from 2003, when Conor turned 5. I'd been making special birthday cakes for several years at that point, so naturally I asked Conor how he wanted me to decorate his birthday cake. His response? He decided he wanted a "Darth Vader/Motorcycle Dude/Rock Star/Teenager With Spiky Hair" cake.

Tall order, but after much consideration, I pulled it off.

Here I am creating the masterpiece. Concocting all those colors of frosting was tedious, and I don't even want to remember the sugar buzz I had after sampling frosting for several hours.


  1. That is a GREAT cake!! The way you used the colors, it doesn't look too busy at all—it's really cute!

    Thanks for the sugar buzz I got from just looking at the picture ; )

  2. That is truly a wonderful cake. You did a great job. I love walking down "memory lane". :)

  3. You pulled it off wonderfully! Great job! =)
