There it is!! The cake I made for my self.
Actually, this is the very first cake I have actually made for me. Usually it is a birthday or something for someone else, but not today! Well, it sort of is for the baby kicking me from the inside out, I suppose. Oh well!
This party was held at the fire station my hubby works out of. Not planning on making anything but a baby butt cake, my design emerged at about ten o'clock at night. I was working the white fondant, thinking of what color to make the blanket. Envisioning what pattern I could make. Since I was going the easy way and decorated with rubber ducks in cups, I thought I could throw some duck on it. Trying to keep it simple, since I know I can get lost in the details of a cake, I convinced myself it was an easy shape to cut out and it wouldn't take long at all.
I should have known...
Then, I started thinking about a little fire fighting rubber ducky my boys used to have, when they were babies. I thought, "Oh that would be cute!" Before I knew it, the time had flown by and it was one o'clock in the morning, and I was brushing off edible blue sparkles off of my hands.
It was totally worth it! This baby butt and baby feet cake were a smashing hit. The fact that it was a firefighter duck cake made it even more special. Thanks me!!
