Baking is not a strong point

As I mentioned in my previous post, it was my son’s birthday. He wanted a fire engine cake. Baking is not one of my strong points.

This was last years effort


The bottom one is mine, top one is what its meant to look like.

This year’s effort


It went really really really wrong. So I turned it into a race car :-/


It did taste nice though so that is one thing

    The effort has to be applauded, definitely. Glad it tasted well too. I get so intimidated by actual pictures of food sometimes I can’t even attempt them.:-)
    Happy belated birthday to the young one!

    Those fancy food pictures are probably touched up or something, just to brag. I like the one you made because you took the time to do this for your little boy.

    Wow. There is something to be said for making the effort. I don’t think my skills could produce anything close to yours.
