You are cordially invited to the third Birthday Cake Round-Up, hosted by LifeasMOM. It’s true. And I hope you can come.
Who: YOU and all your friends, cousins, and enemies. (Well, don’t tell your enemies. They can stay home.)
What: a carnival rounding up birthday cakes of all walks of life, all sizes, all shapes.
Where: here at LifeasMOM
When: Thursday, July 16th, bright and early
Why: ’cause it’s fun to be inspired by all the other cake ideas that moms are baking for their sweet ones. (Everyone who participates has a chance to win fame, glory, and a free dessert from Sara Lee!)
How: There are a couple ways that you can participate
1. Prepare to blog about any birthday cake (or birthday dessert) that you’ve made recently. Post it and bring the link here on the 16th. I’ll have Mr. Linky ready and waiting, Lord willing. (This will be the Ultimate Recipe Swap of next week.)
2. If you don’t have a blog, send me a photo of your cake to lifeasmom (at) sbcglobal (dot) net. I’ll post as many as I can.
3. Post the button above so that you can help spread the word about the party going on over here.
If you’re new to FishMama’s obsession with bday cakes, let me explain. I am not a professional baker. Nor do I play one on tv. I’m just a mom who likes to make birthdays fun for my kids. Somewhere along the line, I realized what a kick it was to make the cake fit some kind of theme or interest, my most recent one being in the shape of an orca. (Obviously other people supply me with themes. Readers have even challenged me with crazy themes.) Cakes have garnered me my fifteen minutes of fame. Just google, “Indiana Jones Birthday Cake” and you’ll see.
I even wrote an ebook about cakes.
Every six months or so I have been pleased to host a round-up of birthday cakes from moms all over the country and even the world. It’s been so fun to see what kids are into and how their parents have tried to make their birthdays special.
Baking a cool cake is not difficult and it’s proven to be a great alternative to more expensive, bakery-made cakes. I hope you’ll spread the word about the Birthday Cake Round-Up and come check out all the pretty cool cakes that will be represented.
