Cakes will be turning 3 next week so I’ve been busy looking at cakes all week. Last year she was deep into her Sesame Street obsession so making a Cookie Monster cake was a given. This year her exposure to movies and TV characters has increased so selecting a theme is proving to be a little more difficult. I’m still not completely decided on a direction or theme but I’ve started seriously considering a Yo Gabba Gabba cake.
Even with a theme or a show narrowed down, there are still so many options to choose from. Do I go with a cake that represents the entire show? Do I go with an individual character? Several characters? Should it be round or rectangular or three dimensional? Do I dare venture into fondant or stick with traditional icing? I’m sure I’m putting way too much thought into this whole thing. I know Cakes is only turning 3 and is going to love whatever I make for her but I am having such a tough time selecting “the one”.
While searching for Yo Gabba Gabba birthday cakes, I came across so many cute cakes ideas that I’m using for inspiration. I pinned quite a few on Pinterest that are definitely doable and ones that far exceed my decorating abilities but regardless they’re all so cute not to share.
Which cake is your favorite?
