Decorating Sugar and Fat...

One of the traditions in our family that I LOVE is when its your birthday you open presents in bed as soon as you wake up in your pajamas. We started that this year with Noah. I love it because it feels like its your birthday the whole day. It feels so cozy opening gifts in bed. Noah kept saying "oh wow, this is for me?" and "thank you God for my pressies" (so cute!) So grateful for grandparents sending gifts from afar!
Noah went on a "father son" camping trip friday night, so I got to work on his cake without him seeing (yay!) for Saturday. It was so cold he wanted to wear his beanie, I love kids in beanies.
He wanted a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake, so here I am starting it....
And 2.5 hours and several iPod songs and sermons later, here it is done. (whew). I loved the challenge of it. I normally would not spend this much time on a project like this, but I saw a cake similar to this in a cake shop (without the airplane) and they wanted to charge me R500. Crazyness. So I wanted to see if I could do it for cheaper....ingredients, way under R100. Oh yeah.

Wow! Great job! That is Sammy's favorite show! He is such a cue little boy and I can tell from pictures and your blog that he's always going to have such a sweet spirit about him.

Happy Birthday Noah!
