A lifetime in cakes

Check out this hilarious photo series of homemade cakes that a guy's mom created for his birthday every year- it's like an 80's time capsule. I especially like the South Korea one.

THESE ARE RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME. The best cake I ever got was some Cookie Monster store bought ... but hey. Cookie Monster is pretty cool.

hmm... this guy seems pretty cool and he lives in arkansas-- that's not too far from here-- maybe he'll be my cool deep south friend.

pud was pretty good with the cakes-but i was boring and requested the "little girl cake" for multiple years in a row in early grade school. it was a sheet cake manipulated into the shape of and decorated as a (you guessed it) little girl. it seems weird and the hint of cannabalism kinds of freaks me out. it's similar to how i find BBQ restaurants that use pigs wearing a bib and holding a fork and knife completely repulsive.

My mom's specialty was a bunny cake. She just made two round pan cakes- one for the head, and one she cut into ears and a bow tie. I remember the bunny cake always appearing at many a birthday party for either myself or my sisters.

Big Al- Did Aimee tell you that for her goodbye party Maria made a cake that looked like her head and we all ate it? Definitely got that cannibalistic vibe going on. As does "hawk eats seagull."

I always did the heart shaped cake for my parents (ain't I sweet) same way your mom made the bunny except with one square and one circle cake. I cut the circle cake in half and put the two pieces up against two adjacent sides of the square. With creativity like that, you wonder how I ended up in finance...

My mom always made the best cakes for our birthdays. One of my favorites was a Big Bird cake she made for my sister.

I LOVE how the early cakes just scream Betty Crocker cookbook.
