Take the cake (please, before I throw it away)

I’ve made a lot of cakes over the years.  For example:

Vincenzo’s first birthday cake:

Cake for Vincenzo’s carnival a few years ago:

Just for fun one day:

And everyone’s favorite:

But alas, my mad cake skills seem to have had an expiration date of “two children,” as this is how Rocco’s christening cake turned out:

It’s especially heartbreaking when you see the picture of the look I was trying to go for:

I took a ton of pictures of the cake from different angles and with different lighting, but the only way I could make it look halfway decent was to do this:

Well, at least someone was happy about the epoch cake fail.  Now this little guy isn’t feeling so lonely in my cake fail file anymore.

(Because now he has a fellow cake to watch TV with.)

  1. +1 for me. I couldn’t make a cake, that would come close to your worst, if I had to do it to save myself.

    I think sleep deprivation my be to blame?

  2. Good grief…don’t be so hard on yourself!! You rock! I barely can even cook a box cake. BTW…my son thought the dump truck one was the best and would like to place an order for his birthday next year!!
