Oswald Cake for David & Adam

For my boys' 3rd birthday, they wanted an Oswald cake. Oswald is such a cute show on Nick Jr with Fred Savage as the voice of Oswald the Octopus. He was super-simple, so I was happy about that after the 5-hour Jessie & Tinkerbell! Here's a picture:

The blue for Oswald ended up darker than I meant, but it was ok.  I should have stopped while I was ahead with the Royal Blue coloring, but I put a little of the black in and it was too much.  I decided to do the cake in reverse of what you normally do, icing the cake in the color of the design, & then filling in the negative space around instead of the reverse.  I like how it came out, and so did my boys!

Cake for My Girls

So, as you may or may not know, I am the mother of a set of girl twins, Anna & Kate, and a set of boy twins, Adam & David. All members of our family have birthdays between November and January, so I end up making lots of cakes during that time.  Anna wanted Jessie on her cake, and Kate wanted Tinkerbell, but the catch was, they only wanted ONE cake! So using Google Image Search and some piping gel, this is the cake I created.  Took 5 hours to get the characters on, but I was pretty proud.  Lettering could have been a TON better, but I was pretty happy with it overall.
