Birthday Cat Cake

Our family is often on the look-out for fun food ideas. We recently made a pound cake for a friend’s birthday. But how to dress it up? After all, you can really frost a pound cake. Here is the result: a fitting cat for one of our favorite cat lovers!

Birthday Cat CakeThe dear little face is fashioned after our friend’s cat, but you can adapt this idea to nearly animal.

Eddi made the front and back images of the head and secured them to a skewer, cut for the proper length. She repeated this to have a tail coming up from the opposite end of the cake. FUN!

A Pear of Bunnies

Obviously, some like greens more than others!

We made these cute little pear bunnies at a slumber party. We made available the following materials:

  • Lettuce and fresh dill – for their beds and mini-carrot tops
  • Canned pear halves – for their bodies
  • Cottage cheese – for their tails
  • Carrot slices, cut diagonally, to make long ovals – for ears and to put as mini-carrots beside the bunnies
  • Cloves – for eyes
  • Dry Wasabi Peas – for noses
The carrot slices are inserted into the pear to make ears.
Note the "mini-carrot" in the front. 🙂

How cute is that??!!
