A Whale of A Cake

FishBoy7 has a newfound interest in fish. I suppose it could be considered a natural interest, considering our last name.

Why I Bake My Own Birthday Cake

Yesterday I was 36. But, today I’m not. Yes, it’s my birthday. And this morning I baked me a cake. Some people think this is odd that I would make my own cake. Even my husband said, “Is it a bummer that you’re baking your own cake?” Good question. It’s a wise man who asks […]

Cakes You Can Make: Fancy Nancy & Breakfast is Served

Fancy Nancy and Breakfast!? These two themes were suggested by readers during FishMama’s Birthday Cake Challenge. They were chosen as the top two in a readers’ poll a week later.
