So, I made a VERY last minute cake for my niece's birthday. It was just my sister's family, my parents and the 'single' siblings. And really we just went as 'tag-alongs' icon_smile.gif Anyway, it was at Chuck E. Cheese and since (we thought) that they give birthday cake to the birthday kids, my mom and sister were debating whether or not to have a cake. Well, at church my niece asks my dad right away whether or not I had made her cake already - that meant I had to make one icon_smile.gif I ADORE my niece and had a Hannah Montana edible image at home, so no problem. Anyway, I didn't even take a picture of the cake. I decorated it in about 30 minutes! I put the HM image on fondant and used double-sided tape to stick the fondant onto some foamboard so the image would stand-up. I had my bro make some chocolate star lollipops and then used some RI scrolls I had left over from this baptism cake on Saturday. It was NOT my proudest moment, but looked decent enough.

Well, when I get to Chuck E. Cheese, my niece is off-the-hook happy!! And when she sees her cake - her jaw drops. She is so HAPPY!!! Even though it wasn't the pretty cake and I so could have done a better job at it, the look on my niece's cake was priceless!

(P.S. And Chuck E. Cheese doesn't give the b-day kids cake anymore! They'll sell you a single-layer one for $10 though. Good thing I made a cake!)

I just had to share!!!!

Truth be told - the stress I was feeling was a thousand times worth it! The look on her face was the best!!!

Not a problem!!! I was actually pretty surprised the cake isn't included anymore.

I had a similar experience with my first cake. That's why I continued. It was priceless to see how excited my niece was when she saw her "ugly" castle cake. This was something I'll always treasure.

I dont get to see my nephew very much, so when I went to take his sister's bday cake I bribed him hugs with my frosting bag. Worked like a charm, and since he went home with mom too much sugar wasnt an issue at all icon_biggrin.gif

I didn't take a pic of it, but my sister took a picture my niece with the cake, so I can get a copy from her and I'll post it.
