KD's 4th bday: scary cake lit

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Electrolux.

Thanks for following the link or coming in by tweet, glad to have you here!

First off, you can design a virtual cake at Kelly’s Cakery to send to a friend that then triggers Electrolux to donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund! In addition, Electrolux is donating $100 to OCRF for every new range sold this month. Thats pretty serious!

Here is an extra you get for playing with virtual cakes – a chance to win an Electrolux Induction Range!

I know, too crazy huh? An induction range means you would be cooking with some serious magnetisim! (versus the saying “cooking with some serious gas” get it? Yeah, I thought you would!)

To get you in the cake mood, I thought I would share a cake I made for one of my kids a few years ago.

See that cake at the top of this post? Thats the cake I made for my middle child who was turning 4 that year.

Needless to say, it was a VERY well lit cake.

I have made all sorts of cakes with varying success but I always include one ingredient that will make every cake a success: HUMOR. I will never be a cake master, I just wont! I make sure it tastes good and also amuses all assembled.

My main objective was to do something different and also to make the birthday girl feel special. I made two cakes, a main one that is meant to look like a big pile of presents and then a smaller cake with smaller presents.

Both cakes were over festooned with way too many candles. The really tall ones were magically re-lighting ones so that 1) the birthday girl and other family members can blow out candles, over and over and 2) since she blows the candles out several times I have a chance to get the shot!

The Birthday Girl got an extra little cake to blow out and not have to share.
