Birthday Cake Memories

Tonight I will share some birthday cakes from years past.

2nd birthday cake, ottumwa, Iowa, Lincoln streetThis birthday cake was made before my mom went to classes to learn how to decorate cakes. It is still a nice cake, and I know that I didn’t care what it looked like. I am sure that since I was just two I simply enjoyed stuffing my face with it

Didn’t I look cute in my overalls?

Birthday Cake, 7th birthday, indian teepee cake, birthday party, ottumwa lagoon parkFast forward now to when I turned seven. Here is my birthday cake for a party at what we called lagoon park or curly slide park. For more see: Fun at the Park

Here I have a cake that is an Indian tepee. My mom had a great idea to make this cake. The pan she used was usually for making a doll cake. The tepee shape is the dress and a doll head would be placed on top. It worked great to make the tepee.

So, this year I decided to use them to top a small cake from the grocery store.

Not even close to being as good as my Mom’s cakes 🙂
