Cakes of Birthdays Past


You know I've had birthday on the brain for the last week, and I thought it would be fun to share some of Caleb's cakes that we have done in the past.  I've always made the kids' birthday cakes and the theme of their party has always centered around whatever they were really interested in at the time.  It's been fun to look back through these and remember all of the things that were his favorites (and most still are!).

Most of these pictures aren't great and the cakes definitely aren't professional quality, but it was fun to see what we could come up with each year to match the theme.

Birthdays 1 and 2 were pre-digital camera, so I didn't have easy access to those pictures.  His first cake was a big brown bear and the second was a dump truck.


3 years old-Firetruck 

4 years old-Drum

5 years old-Nascar
I couldn't find a picture of this one but  I made the cake shaped like a oval track and placed his toy Nascars on top.

6 years old-Dalmatian dog


7 years old-OU football helmet and football cake

8 years old-Airplane Runway and Jets

9 years old-Lego


10 years old-Star Wars Legos

11 years old-Army guys


Thanks for indulging me on my walk down memory lane!

  9. Your cakes are much fancier than mine (you've got skillz! ;), but we've done a lot of the same theme over the 10 years of my oldest son's life (and of course, little brother likes to have all the same things.)

    My oldest will be 11 in May...and I am NOT ready for him to start middle school...and not want Star Wars, Lego, or Hot Wheels themed cakes and parties. Wah. :(

  10. How did I miss this post?? These are great, Jennifer! Love the football helmet - how on earth did you make that? I need to make that for my oldest - he plays football and has a Sept. birthday - perfect time for that cake. You missed your calling as a cake decorator my friend!

  11. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  16. I rarely leave remarks, but I browsed a bunch of responses on "Cakes of Birthdays Past".
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if
    it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like a few of the responses look like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I'd like to
    follow you. Could you post a list of every one of your public sites
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  21. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was
    hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
