A Disaster Cake

I thought I would share the first carved cake I made. It was a Snoopy dog house cake with Snoopy lying on top of the roof. The Snoopy is a rice crispy treat shaped and covered in fondant. The cake was for my twins first birthday.

The week leading up to their birthday was one of the busiest weeks of my life. At the time, I was breastfeeding the twins, planning their birthday party, and my family was in town. It is an understatement to say I was overwhelmed and stressed. My decision to make the Snoopy cake and two six inch round strawberry smash cakes was unwavering even though it meant sleeping less than four hours a night.

Snoopy Birthday Cake

The cake didn't turn out exactly how I imagined it would. I imagined less flaws. Looking back, I’m actually surprised I was able to finish the cake and it didn't collapse. I made many mistakes with this cake.

The birthday party turned out great, and the kids had fun. I don’t think they noticed the Snoopy cake, but they loved their smash cake.
