Monday 3 April 2006 — This is more than 17 years old. Be careful.
For Ben’s birthday this year, we made two cakes, one on the day, and one for the party. First was a Stickfus cake:
Stickfus is a world Ben created, populated by stick figures. Bejoq is Ben’s self-assigned name on the world.
The party cake was in the shape of Lego pieces, at Ben’s request:
Both cakes were really easy, and Ben loved them. Funny thing is, we made a Lego cake just like this one for Max when he was about the same age! The colors of both cakes are a bit off. The stickfus cake is supposed to be skin colored, and we wanted to make the Lego pieces primary colors, but frosting always comes out too pastel. Anyone know how to get good saturated colors in frosting?
My wife found and used professional food coloring paste by Wilton when she made a firetruck cake for our son. We had to use lots and lots of it to make the black tires and the deep red body.
You can see my duck from last year here (frosting coloring): http://www.familyfrisch.com/miscpics/apr06/duckcake.jpg
And this year's snake (reg food coloring):
I think the frosting colors come out much more vibrant
