The Cake Request

I had grand plans for Bud's birthday cake this year. I was all set to outdo myself and make him something kind of like this:

The '74 Corvette Car Cake

But then, a week before his birthday, I made this cake and it changed everything. 

Once Bud tried a bite of the lime yogurt cake (without the blackberry sauce) his mind was made up. It just had to be his birthday cake. Not that I minded. He just unknowingly saved me hours upon hours in the kitchen. (Hallelujah!) And this cake is soo much better. 

Really. Even I ate a piece. 

It even ended up making a pretty cute birthday cake. If you ignore the fact that the car on top is disproportionately small, that is.

Who needs trick candles, anyway?

Happy Birthday again, Bud!!!

Thanks, jwise! The funny thing is that I only posted about 1/3 of the candle blowing out attempts. It was seriously hilarious.
