I Used It Again!

Well… my little guy is now officially 3!  Not so little anymore I suppose… but he’ll always be the baby of the bunch as far as I’m concerned!  We had fun celebrating with him – eating cake and ice cream… and then setting up our Christmas tree.  (Yup… you read that right… and I KNOW it’s early… but we are antsy – and we just couldn’t help ourselves!  Wahahaha!) 

I put together a ‘sort of’ choo-choo-train looking birthday cake for Ty.  (He loved it – so that’s all that matters right??? LOL!)  And I am totally going to sound like an advertisement for Pampered Chef here, but I used my Classic Batter Bowl AGAIN for the little ‘hill/tunnel’ that the train is supposed to look like it’s going through.  I tend to use my batter bowl a lot for baking cakes… Here is what the bowl looks like:  (nothing very out of the ordinary or anything…)batter bowl

All ya have to do is bake your cake inside the bowl and then flip the baked result upside down… Here is the cake I made for Ty’s birthday this year:

And here are couple of past cakes that I’ve used it for too:


I just keep using that thing over and over again… hee hee hee! 

Well – I just wanted to pop on today and say ‘hi’… nothing major.  I have some scrapping to do now for Miss Kim… she has a beautiful new Christmas kit out that I can’t wait to dive into.  Woohoo!

C ya later!

All your effort earned that beautiful beaming smile from your boy.

Wow, a regular baker, you are! I've heard a lot about the batter bowls, but I've never used it for baking cakes. Maybe I'll do something cool for Dan's birthday.
