Happy seventh birthday, Noah!

It's my baby's seventh birthday today!

He was quite specific about the cake he wanted - he wanted a road and little fondant cars he could play with. So his cake this year is embarrassingly simple but he loved it:

The only fondant used is for the cars - the road is made of marshmallows melted with a little butter and Oreo crumbs (here's the recipe).

The royal icing was too runny so it ran all over when I did the lines on the road and the wording. I could scrape the lines off and do them again but the wording had to stay. Oh, and I didn't have time to get coconut for "grass" so plain icing it was.

Sometimes good enough is good enough :)

  3. Oh, how fun! I love to play with my food too, but it doesn't usually come with toy cars. :)

  5. Happy Birthday Noah! I'm proud that you gave the boy the cake he wanted and didn't insist on a masterpiece. Cause I know how you're into making so much more work for yourself than necessary (right?). I am going to try the marshmallow Oreo mix, I have a feeling its going to be a hit this side of town.

  6. Your son is a really beatiful boy!! My little João (Jonh) is 7 too, it's a wonderful age, we still can kiss them!! After that thye're "grown" and mom's kisses are not a good thing anymore specially in front of other kids... So let's enjoy our boys as long as we can! Nice cake!!
