So my girlfriend called about me making a Buzz Lightyear cake for her son who is turning 4. I was asking her for details - does he want Buzz on top of the cake? Does he want the cake to be in the shape of Buzz? etc.

So she asks him and he says "I want to push a button on the cake and have the wings pop out." icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif

I laughed and told her I'm good, but I don't think I'm that good!
Anyway, so I'm sharing this story with my family at dinner and my 5 yr old DD says "Well mom why don't you just make the wings out of fondant?"

I was explaining that I didn't think I could actually make a cake like that and my (adorable icon_rolleyes.gif ) 7 yr old son pipes up and tells me "But mom, Duff could do it."

And he goes " The cake esta feo huh " lol (him and his spanglish, said Mom, the cake is ugly huh !!)

Oh yeah...our kids are so spoiled as far as cakes are concerned. Mine don't get excited about seeing a barbie doll grocery style cake or even like the taste. They now know better, they are educated in this area and know we Moms are the experts. Isn't that right, ladies??

p.s. I'm glad my kids have not made a comment out loud...keeping my fingers crossed.

It gets worse, mine are 18, 22 and 24. My 22 year old daughter is turning 23 this month and she is renting a cabin in tahoe and all her friends are going up. Thought I was getting out of making a cake this year. Last week she asks me to make her cake. I tell her she will be traveling with it so that limits how elaborite ( I probably spelled that wrong) it can be. She says well, everyone is expecting you to top last years lumberjack cake. She had a lumberjack theme party and I made a tree trunk with an ax in the top.
She already has her wedding cake designed and no fiance or steady boyfriend.

I luv it when that stuff happens! 7-yr old granddaughter wanted a Jonas Bros cake for her birthday. Her mom (my daughter) asked her, "Now if Banna (her name for 'gramma' for me) can't do a Jonas Bros, what else would you want.

Granddaughter folds arms, gives her mom that "oh you are so stupid!" look and says, "Banna can do it! Just go tell her!"

This is the same granddaughter who is fine eating the lemon cookies her mom makes, but on Christmas Eve she's GOT to have Banna's lemon cookies or she is honestly afraid that Santa won't leave her as many presents! icon_biggrin.gif

This reminds me of when I took my daughter to her cousins house to cut a cake for her first birthday. I did not make the cake for that evening because I was making a two tiered cake for the party over the weekend. My three y/o asked my who was making the cake and I replied they bought one at the store. She then giggled and very confidently told me that stores do not make cakes, mommies do! I had to chuckle.....

I just started making cakes, and I wouldn't say I'm that great yet. However, I made cakes for a friend on mine's sons birthdays and they loved them.

The other day, said mom tells her boys that she is going to try to make a cake like one I did and her oldest (10) said, "don't kid yourself Mom, you are no Mrs. S.!"

It continued through the night with him telling his dad in a "poor pitiful Mom thinks she can do this" tone. Made me laugh and feel great too! icon_smile.gif

I've had my nieces over and we've played around with cookies, cupcakes...
so when my sister-in-law was making cupcakes for my nieces to take to school and they kept telling her thats not how Aunt Lisa does it! Its a wonder she talks to me anymore.
My daughter likes to help to and I once spent a parent teacher interview talking cookies!
