Hi...I'm trying to think of a fun idea for a cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. Unlike my other children, you can count on her to find anything around that is dangerous, messy, etc. One of my friend's named her "houdini" because she got out of our hotel room and was missing for 10 minutes. She gets into and out of lots of things. She pulls chairs all over the house and uses them to reach whatever she wants (to unlock the front door to go out, to get a knife, you name it). Does this description stir any cute cake/theme ideas in anyone's mind? I just can't think of what to do...but I'm thinking I'd like to tie it into her personality. She already had a Curious George cake for her first birthday (even then she was starting to do these sorts of things). Thanks! ann

My first thought was a chocolate handcuffs mold I saw ealier today...but I dont think thats appropriate for a two year old, lol!
Maybe you could make a cute little figure of a door, cracked open, and your daughter beside it, maybe doing/holding something cute or mischeivous. Does that make sense? I hope!

How about a magic them with an escape artist or a bunny coming out of a hat?

Have fun with this... My almost 4 year old is EXACTLY like yours... I swore she would never make it this long with out getting herself hurt... but so far so good... I was thinking of doing an evil monkey for mine, until she informed me that I'm making a microphone with butterflies for her Dec 23rd birthday.... what a crazy kid...

How about a straight jacket with locks and chains behind her and then her sitting on the floor eating a chocolate cake.

LOL.. sounds like my 3 year old twins!

I don't know why I picture a child sitting on the top of a fridge looking down at a kicked out chair on the floor. LOL
