I Am Chicken

I have this thing with birthday cakes.


You can read about it here and here.

I also have this thing with chickens.

You can read about it here.

Combining the two seemed like a really, really unwise idea, but my boy wanted a chicken cake. Who am I to deny him his birthday wish?

So I set out to make a chicken cake, armed with a glass measuring bowl, a custard cup, and a coffee mug.

Add a some frosting, a couple of crackers, and some M&Ms, and ta-da!

A cake that (sorta) resembles a chicken.

And the next morning, it (sorta) resembled a chicken with its head cut off. But it was nothing that a little frosting and a plastic piece of lumber from Matthew's construction set couldn't fix.

If only it was that easy to slow down Riley's race toward 13. Because, to tell you the truth, I'm a little bit chicken to be the mother of a teenager. Thank goodness I have a year left to dread look forward to that.

Wow!! That took some imagination and creativity!! And it looks really cute, too! I can barely frost a cake with a spatula, much less a decorating tip!

What beautiful memories you are creating with your children. I still (and frequently) remember fondly the pony cake my dear aunt made for me for what must have been my 4th birthday. It even had M&M reins and bridle!
