Epic Fail of a Birthday Cake

My Husbands birthday is this week, so on the weekend we had friends over for dinner and I asked him if he wanted a cake.
"Of course," He said..

So I made him a cake.. I decided since my husband is the ultimate lego geek I would create him a lego piece from cake. I was so proud of myself! It would be a rather easy cake to do with a very simple icing job and I wouldn't have to work too hard to do it..

Well I definitely didn't work too hard...

Most people have said the cake looks just fine. I however am a perfectionist at times and I was not thrilled with how this cake turned out at all. I look at it and see a big blue giant piece of crap.. but everyone else says they see a great lego piece.

So you can be the judge

I know it looks sort of like a lego piece, but I am not happy with it in the least. The little top pieces of the lego almost drove me to insanity as I tried to ice them. I think if I ever did this again, I would cover it in fondant.

So there... this is what I call my Epic Fail so far.. you can decide what you think of it

Blog Awards

Well apparently I won a blog award last week from another site. However after 7 days of me having their link up on my blog, and showing the link to their awards page, they decided to hassle me for a week straight saying my link wasn't the right size text.. Are you kidding me?? You get a link to your site from here and you have the audacity to bitch about the text of the link???
Who does that???

Is this some blog thing that I don't know anything about?? Are other sites this fucking anal that they would deliberately keep your link from their site simply because you put their link in a text they didn't like???

Screw that!!

So award or not, I've chosen to tell them to forget it. I don't need someone else telling me what I can or can't do on MY site!!

Happy Birthday Brother

It is my Brother's 34th Birthday... So I made him a cake.
He just recently took up golf again, so I thought this cake would be fitting for him. I got the idea from a friend of mine who made a golf ball cake for her father's birthday last year. So I stole her pans and tried it for myself:)

The golf ball itself is a ball shaped pan. I decided to rest the sphere on top of a regular round cake to give it some support, and I thought it would make a good fairway. I recently found the "grass tip" which made the grass work super easy to do! I can see this tip coming in handy on future cakes!

The cake was very well received. Even after my Aunt almost took me out with her shoulder as I brought it to the dining table! I think she was jealous of my work (snicker)

Anyways... The cake.. that is what you came to see right?
