What's Wrong With This Picture?

Seems I'm still tired... take a look at this picture... I was trying to mix some icing up early for Tater's birthday party this weekend...

Figure it out? I'll post the answer later.

UPDATE: And the answer is??? I picked up the mixer and turned it on... to notice that the mixer blades were missing. Sigh. It was only 9pm.

We love to decorate... here are some cupcakes and a cake from the 4th! We had a friend of Tot's over to help. GRIN

That night, I made a flag cake. I couldn't get the stars right, but there are 50 of them. I had problems deciding on a border as well. Before border and after:

= = =

and now I'm trying to figure out which image to use on Tater's cake for the Transformers. Any suggestions are appreciated. Tink has sent me some ideas... my hubby suggested the Autobot logo. Will depend on what I can 'free hand' with icing. ;-)

I hope that's not Crisco for the frosting...

Where are the beater thingys? [No, I'm obviously not a pastry chef!]

The cake is so pretty; I've never tried to decorate one other than 'Happy Birthday'. ;)

well, the autobot logo ought to be easier than an actual transformer.... And you could print it out and make a stencil.... and then fill in the icing after you get the lines done.

Boy does it make me happy to see you're feeling up to baking!

I like the flag cake with the border. It completes it. As for the Transformer cake, go the easy route. Make colored frosting and buy little cake topper toys for it. It's going to get eaten anyway :)

And the mixer, well, I've done that myself.

You're such a good Mom! The cupcake scene makes me giggle...

Another reason why I turn off pics on my cell, food cravings won't be triggered. Damn!
