Littlest Pet Shop Cake





I think my hubby is rather awesome.  I would call him a Jack of all trades... he's a great husband, father, pastor, parrot owner, unicycle-wannabe-rider, handyman, computer nerd, ex-hairdresser and birthday cake maker (well, he doesn't actually 'make' the cakes but designs them afterwards).

In the past he's made a really cool Indiana Jones cake and an Incredible Hulk cake for the boys.

This year Miss 6 asked him (while batting her eyelashes) to make her a Littlest Pet Shop cake... so he decided to make her a "pool party" one.

It's amazing what you can do with a bought round sponge cake, some blue jelly, chocolate finger biscuits and a couple of your child's toys.  You could pretty much make any type of 'pool party' cake using your kids favourite toys.

I think he did a pretty amazing job for a guy who doesn't normally enter the kitchen (except when he's looking in the fridge for something to eat or trying to find the treats I've hidden from him).
